Chemical Principles (5th edition)
This text is designed for a rigorous course in introductory chemistry. Its central theme is to challenge students to think and question while providing a sound foundation in the principles of chemistry.
At the same time, students of all levels benefit from assistance in learning how to think, pose questions, and approach problems. To that end, Chemical Principles is organized in a logical way that builds understanding and offers students a wide array of pedagogical support.
Chemical Principles presents the concepts of chemistry in a logical sequence that enhances student understanding. The atoms-first sequence starts with the behavior of atoms and molecules and builds to more complex properties and interactions.
â€¢ Atoms and molecules come first (including discussions of quantum mechanics and molecular orbitals), providing the foundation for understanding bulk properties and models of gases, liquids, and solids. Chapter 1 has been reorganized in this edition to give readers a gentler introduction to atoms and their structure.
â€¢ Next comes an exploration of thermodynamics and equilibrium, which builds on a conceptual understanding of entropy and free energy. This integrated presentation lays a common foundation for related concepts and provides a basis for the form of the equilibrium constant.
â€¢ Kinetics then shows the dynamic nature of chemistry and the cr
