A classic English plum pudding. shown in Fig. * In 1909 Robert Millikan (1868–1953), working at the University of Chicago, performed very clever experiments involving charged oil drops. These experiments allowed him to determine the magnitude of the electron charge (Fig. 9).

1. The isolation of naturally occurring substances for use as raw materials 2. The processing of raw materials by chemical reactions to manufacture commercial products 3. The use of chemicals to provide services A given industry may participate in one, two, or all of these activities. Producing chemicals on a large industrial scale is very different from an academic laboratory experiment. Some of the important differences are described below. In the academic laboratory, practicality is typically the most important consideration.

The best solution becomes apparent only as the results from various trial solutions are evaluated. A schematic summarizing the approach for dealing with the acid decomposition of paper is shown in Fig. 3. 3 The Scientific Method Science is a framework for gaining and organizing knowledge. Science is not simply a set of facts but is also a plan of action—a procedure for processing and understanding certain types of information. Scientific thinking is useful in all aspects of life, but in this text we will use it to understand how the chemical world operates.
