Physical Chemistry - With CD - 4th edition

Physical Chemistry - With CD (ISBN10: 061815292X; ISBN13: 9780618152926)
ISBN13: 978-0618152926
ISBN10: 061815292X

Summary: With its clear explanations and practical pedagogy, Physical Chemistry is less intimidating to students than other texts, without sacrificing the mathematical rigor and comprehensiveness necessary for a junior-level physical chemistry course. The text's long-standing reputation for accessible writing provides clear instruction and superior problem-solving support for students.

The authors clearly explain the experimental and theoretical reasoning behind fun
damental concepts before moving into a discussion of the concept itself, resulting in greater understanding of the material. Pedagogical features--including chapter-opening "Previews," worked-out examples, marginal notes, end-of-chapter "Problems," lists of "Key Equations," and "Suggested Readings"--help guide students through the often-challenging material.
  • New! A CD-ROM offers students exciting multimedia features to facilitate learning. It includes interactive simulations, animations, graphs, and exercises that illustrate key concepts from the book and reinforce problem-solving skills.
  • New! The new edition is two-color, making the artwork clearer and more attractive and enhancing the book's pedagogical features and organizational structure.
  • New! The new edition has been updated throughout, featuring discussion of new developments in laser spectroscopy and superconductivity, and expanded coverage of topics in quantum mechanics.
  • End-of-chapter "Problems" have been organized according to subject matter, with the more difficult problems indicated by an asterisk. Answers to all "Problems" are at the back of the book.
  • Historical vignettes and brief biographies of renowned physical chemists add interest to the course by helping students see how theories have developed.
