Andrew Cooksy’s clear teaching voice help students connect immediately with the subject matter while defusing some of their initial trepidation about physical chemistry. Through lively narrative and meticulous explanations of mathematical derivations, Physical Chemistry: Thermodynamics, Statistical Mechanics, and Kinetics engages students while fostering a sincere appreciation for the interrelationship between the theoretical and mathematical reasoning that underlies the study of physical chemistry. The author’s engaging presentation style and careful explanations make even the most sophisticated concepts and mathematical details clear and comprehensible.
A lab manual for an undergraduate-level course in Environmental Chemistry or Environmental Analytical Chemistry.
Designed as a â user's manualâ for students learning the required techniques and equipment they will encounter in the â real world,â this lab manual provides an interdisciplinary collection of 24 student-tested experiments with extensive introductory material. It prepares students to think like scientists.
The selected solution manual for students contains complete, step-by-step solutions to selected odd-numbered end-of-chapter problems.
Extensively revised, the updated Study Guide and Solutions Manual contain many more practice problems.
General Chemistry: Atoms First, Second Edition starts from the building blocks of chemistry, the atom, allowing the authors to tell a cohesive story that progresses logically through molecules and compounds to help students intuitively follow complex concepts more logically. This unified thread of ideas helps students build a better foundation and ultimately gain a deeper understanding of chemical concepts. Students can more easily understand the microscopic-to-macroscopic connections between unobservable atoms and the observable behavior of matter in daily life, and are brought immediately into real chemistry–instead of being forced to memorize facts.
Reflecting a true atoms first perspective, the Second Edition features experienced atoms-first authors, incorporates recommendations from a panel of atoms-first experts, and follows historical beliefs in teaching chemistry concepts based and real experimental data first. This approach distinguishes this text in the market based whereby other authors teach theory first, followed by experimental data.
How often are Chemistry students amazed to find as much math as they do in their first week of General, Organic & Biology Chemistry? This manual is designed for them. This friendly guide leads students through early mathematical stepsâ fractions, percents, scientific notation, into the world of calculators and how to get the most out of them. It progresses, parallel to their classwork, through algebraic problem-solving, into the whole variety of necessary conversions: density, mass, volume; Celsius, Fahrenheit; calories, Joules, BTUs; and molar mass, moles, grams. Applications and down-to-earth examples abound.
