Description

Elements of Physical Chemistry leads first and second year students through a challenging but vital branch of chemistry, using clear explanations and step-by-step guidance, all packaged using a bright and inviting presentation.

Clear writing style and inviting presentation make this the ideal introductory text. Tightly focussed coverage makes this compact text an ideal resource for students taking first and second year physical chemistry courses. Maths support throughout, including toolkit summaries, fully worked examples, annotated equations, and self-test questions, helps students to understand the material and gives them confidence when problem solving.

Impact sections' show how the principles developed within chapters are currently being applied in a variety of modern contexts, including biology and materials science. Over 500 colour illustrations provide visual interpretations of concepts and molecular structures. An Online Resource Centre, with multiple choice questions and webcasts for students and a test-bank for registered adopters, provides plenty of opportunity for students to practise applying what they have learnt.

Icons within the text show students where figures have associated Living Graphs in the software package Explorations in Physical Chemistry.

New to this edition

  • A new Foundations chapter introduces the basic concepts, such as classical mechanics and electromagnetism, that are needed to understand the discussions later in the text.
  • Chemist's toolkits are used throughout the text to remind the reader of a variety of mathematical and physical techniques and concepts as they become necessary.
  • Labels have been attached to all the main equations to help the reader to recall their meaning and relevance.
  • New Road Maps provide a structured summary of equations, showing the relations between expressions and the approximations involved.
  • The number of worked examples has been increased, all of which have strategy sections to help the reader collect their thoughts. In addition, more self-tests have been added, to enable readers to assess their grasp of a calculation or topic.
