Fourier Transform Workshop
The following files were used for Fourier Transform workshop during a laboratory lecture, in which students practice Fourier analysis on using Mat lab, and then go over the results during laboratory lecture.

The “Digital Lab Techniques Manual” is a series of videos designed to help you prepare for your chemistry laboratory class. Each video provides a detailed demonstration of a common laboratory technique, as well as helpful tips and information.
Video 1. Volumetric Techniques: This video introduces the proper methods for measuring precise volumes of liquid using pipets, burets, volumetric flasks, and syringes.
Video 7. Filtration: Learn how to effectively carry out gravity and vacuum filtrations in this video.
Video 11. Balances: Correct usage and maintenance of a balance is a basic skill that is essential in any laboratory procedure.
