Physical Chemistry – David W. Ball – 1st Edition

Description

Intended for the year long, calculus-based course for and majors, CHEMISTRY follows a traditional organization while concentrating on core topics. The text does not cover some higher level topics-for example, photochemistry, molecular beams, thermal physics, and polymers- found in some , and rarely covered in the undergraduate chemistry course, but more fully explains the essential elements of the discipline.

Written by a dedicated educator and researcher, this text is intended for those who are trying to learn physical chemistry-a book that works as a and not as an encyclopedia. Where appropriate, there is some focus on mathematical manipulations, providing students with a review of calculus as applied to physical chemistry.
