Readability combines with a complete and systematic presentation of material in the sixth edition of this classic, student-oriented textbook. Simple language, new worked examples and problems, and concentrated coverage of topics in smaller units provide majors and nonmajors with a solid introduction to quantitative analytical chemistry in a one- or two- semester course. Features on biomedical, biological, and environmental topics will interest students studyting medicine, allied health, and other areas. Mathcad Computer Exercise Supplement introduces students to a powerful and versatile mathematical tool and its application to problems and computations of analytical chemistry. Many references in this paperback supplement refer to problems and examples in the textbook. Solutions Manual saves instructors time and may also be used as a student study aid.
