Physical Chemistry – David W. Ball – 1st Edition


Intended for the year long, -based chemistry 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 textbooks, and rarely covered in the undergraduate physical chemistry course, but more fully explains the essential elements of the discipline.

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