The world's leading textbook of physical chemistry has been thoroughly revised and modernized. It remains authoritative and accessible, but compared with the previous edition it is more flexible and pedagogically richer. This edition contains even more illustrations, more explanation, more interpretation, and more background information on physics and mathematics. It is more modern too, having increased coverage of biological and materials topics, and it contains more help with the mathematical development of derivations.
This major revision of the world's leading textbook of physical chemistry has maintained its tradition of accessibility but authority and has brought it thoroughly up to date. The new author team has introduced many innovations. There are new or rewritten chapters on the solid state, on molecular interactions, macromolecules, and electron transfer. Almost every chapter has at least one Box showing the relevance of the material to modern chemistry. All the chapters now conclude with a check list which includes definitions and key equations. The authors have paid special attention to the presentation of mathematical derivations and to the physical interpretation of equations. They have also ensured that the text is highly modular, so that it can be used in different sequences, either atoms first or thermodynamics first. The art program has been redrawn and extended, new Discussion questions have been added, and the Further Information sections have been recast to provide the necessary background in mathematics and physics. The text is fully geared to the web, with full media support. SUPPLEMENTS AND SUPPORT MATERIAL: 1. Web site featuring ; Living Graphs (about 150). Dynamic, interactive graphs that allow experimentation and hands-on learning; Web links to sources of data and other information, as referred to in the book.; 2. Student's Solutions Manual containing worked solutions to half the end of chapter exercises and problems in the parent text. ; 3. Instructor's Solutions Manual, FREE to adopters of the parent text, containing worked solutions to the other half of the end of chapter exercises and problems in the parent text. Contains a CD-ROM with all the illustrations from the text, for use in presentations. ; 4. MathCad/Mathematica supplement book with CD-ROM to take all living graphs further. ; NEW TO THIS EDITION: - New co-author Julio de Paula, a biophysical chemist, strengthens the text's coverage of biological applications. - Margin notes provide help with mathematics just where it is needed. - Boxes added to every chapter to cover biological applications, environmental, materials science and chemical engineering. Each box has two problems, and suggestions for further reading. - Important equations and definitions added to the 'key concepts' section
