9780199608119: Elements of Physical Chemistry

Getting to grips with physical chemistry can be a daunting task. With new concepts to understand and a large amount of mathematics to master, it is no wonder that students can sometimes find it overwhelming.

Elements of Physical Chemistry has been carefully developed to help the reader increase their confidence when using physics and mathematics to answer fundamental questions about the structure of molecules, how chemical reactions take place, and why materials behave the way they do.

The content is tightly focussed and well-matched to undergraduate courses, making it easy to find the information needed. Topics are covered in a clear, easy-to-follow style, using everyday examples to help students to visualise things that can otherwise seem very abstract.

This edition sees further development of the learning features. These include Chemist's toolkits, which provide a reminder of mathematical techniques or introductory chemistry needed to follow material in the chapters; Worked examples, providing a step-by-step route through a problem; Brief illustrations which explain how to use equations; and Self-tests, allowing students to check their understanding.

On the accompanying Online Resource Centre, students have access to multiple choice questions and Webcasts; short videos showing, step-by-step, how to solve an exercise. For lecturers, there is a test bank and the figures from the text are available to download.

Review:

"This text presents fundamental concepts of physical chemistry in an engaging and enjoyable style. I will definitely be recommending it to others."
--Matthew Ryder, Chemistry student, Heriot-Watt University

"I think the book is very good for first and second years. It does a good job of explaining some of the traditionally more 'scary' topics without being too heavy on the maths. The exercises and questions are also done well, and the graphs and diagrams are useful and clear."
--Jonathan Booth, Chemistry student, University of York
