    usage of "dedicated"

    I would like to make a few sentences using the word, dedicated.

    (1) There is a dedicated section in this book covering science history.

    (2) One special section in this book is dedicated to science history.

    (3) This room is dedicated to conducting chemistry lab lessons.

    Please explain whether or not I am using "dedicated" correctly. Thanks a lot.

    Re: usage of "dedicated"

    2 and 3 are natural. With sentence 1, I would change the word order to "There is a section in this book [which is] dedicated to [covering] the history of science."
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
