Physical Chemistry : How Chemistry Works 1e
Physical Chemistry: How Chemistry Works is a modern and accessible undergraduate textbook which takes a fresh approach to teaching in physical chemistry, to prepare students for how they will actually employ physical chemistry in real life. Designed to excite and engage all students of chemistry, the pedagogical style and practical, contemporary examples allows them to remember more of physical chemistry, not just that it was the hardest course they ever took! For students who are not planning to specialize in physical chemistry, this text presents the mathematical and physical machinery to facilitate an understanding of the physical chemical aspects of any system, allowing students of inorganic, organic, analytical and biochemistry to be fluent in the essentials of physical chemistry that are required to understand synthesis, intermolecular interactions, detection and materials properties. For students who are deeply interested in the subject of physical chemistry, the textbook facilitates further study by connecting them to the frontiers of research. For each chapter there are worked examples and exercises of several levels: discussion questions, simple equation manipulation questions and problem solving exercises, accompanied by an online solutions manual for instructors.
