This Module shows how methods for various analyses of data reduce to the calculation of a weighted mean to minimize a weighted sum of squares. Applications include Wilhelm Ostwald's calibration of a laboratory instrument called an azotometer, mathematical modeling of chemical reactions, and test of the chemical Law of Mass Action. **Table of Contents****1. INTRODUCTION 2. CALIBRATING AN AZOTOMETER WITH MATHEMATICAL MODELS**
