Centrifuge (ChemPages Lab)

Centrifuge: this is a resource in the collection "ChemPages Laboratory Resources". The centrifuge is used to separate a solid from a solution quickly. A centrifuge is used for small-scale separations; typically the volume is less than 5 mL. Larger volumes of mixtures can be separated by filtration. The ChemPages Laboratory Resources are a set of web pages that include text, images, video, and self check questions. The topics included are those that are commonly encountered in the first-year chemistry laboratory. They have been put together for use as both a pre-laboratory preparation tool and an in-laboratory reference source.
