Through a vibrant four-color design, Chemistry for Engineers presents chemistry concepts most relevant to engineers and demonstrates them within an applied context. A thorough problem-solving and conceptually driven approach helps engineering students develop the quantitative and qualitative skills necessary to succeed in the course and in their fields. Features that emphasize skills, concepts, and engineering applications appear throughout each chapter, providing students with multiple opportunities to hone their understanding of chapter topics. For those students who need it, an introductory chapter, called "Fundamentals," provides a quick review of basic chemistry and math concepts. A complete technology package accompanies the text and helps make teaching and learning chemistry more dynamic. Resources include the CL Testing program powered by Diploma, the HM ClassPresent CD with scaleable videos and animations, and the Online Study Center for students with quizzes and tutorials.
