Book Preface

For the Student

Francie came away from her first chemistry lecture in a glow. In one hour she found out that everything was made up of atoms which were in continual motion. She grasped the idea that nothing was ever lost or destroyed. Even if something was burned up or rotted away, it did not disappear from the face of the earth; it changed into something else—gases, liquids, and powders. Everything, decided Francie after that first lecture, was vibrant with life and there was no death in chemistry. She was puzzled as to why learned people didn’t adopt chemistry as a religion.
—Betty Smith, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn

OK, not everyone has such a breathless response to their chemistry lectures, and few would mistake chemistry as a religion, yet chemistry is a subject with great logical beauty. We love chemistry because it explains the “why” behind many observations of the world around us and we use it every day to help us make informed choices about our health, lifestyle, and politics. Moreover, chemistry is the fundamental, enabling science that underlies many of the great advances of the last century that have so lengthened and enriched our lives. Chemistry provides a strong understanding of the physical world and will give you the foundation you need to go on and make important contributions to science and humanity.
