The Elements of Physical Chemistry Summary

The Elements of Physical Chemistry by Peter W. Atkins

From the renowned author of the best-selling Physical Chemistry comes the second edition of this popular introduction to physical chemistry for first year chemistry undergraduates. In this completely revised and updated edition of The Elements of Physical Chemistry , special attention has been paid to the clarity of presentation of the material, with many pedagogical aids. An increase in the number of worked examples, in-text exercises, justification boxes, and new strategy sections will help students to understand all of the topics under review. The book is now more extensively illustrated than ever before, with completely new artwork, and the author has had in mind throughout the revision the difficulties students have with this subject. To reflect the growing emphasis within courses on biological and medicinal aspects of the subject, this new edition takes many of its examples from applications in both areas. The many new and modified exercises are designed to reflect the span of interests of students likely to use this text, and to help learn problem-solving skills. The aim has been to produce a book which covers physical chemistry in an introductory way without burdening the reader with an excess of mathematics. All lecturers and undergraduates in chemistry will want to own a copy of this book. The forthcoming Solutions Manual to the Elements of Physical Chemistry 2e will publish in January 1997. Full details to be given in the next bulletin. This book is intended for first year undergraduates in chemistry, biochemistry, chemical engineering, molecular biology.
