Description:
The student is to go to the workshop site, open a new workbench (File>select New WorkBench (Cntl-N). Then select Tools>Glassware>Beakers>600 ml Beaker. After the Beaker appears, using the LEFT mouse button drag the beaker to the center of the work bench, then RIGHT click and Select "Set as Recipient". Select from the WStockroom Explorer (left hand side of screen) Distilled Water, and using the Left Mouse button, DRAG the water container onto the Workshop bench. Right click on the distilled water container and then select "set as Source". Notice that the water container moves over your beaker. At the bottom of the workbench screen, look for the box next to "TRANSFER AMOUNT mL". Type in 100, and then click the POUR button. Observe that 100 mL of water has been added to your beaker. Note down the Solution Info on the right hand side of the workbench. The pH is neutral (as demonstrated by equal concentrations of -OH and +H ions).
