DESCRIPTION

Getting to grips with physical chemistry can be a daunting task. Elements of Physical Chemistry is an ideal course companion, explaining clearly the fundamental concepts of this vital branch of chemistry. By illustrating concepts with examples from everyday experience and providing step-by-step guidance on how to apply the underpinning mathematical and physical principles, it helps students in the early years of their studies progress with greater confidence. This fifth edition has been brought to life by full-colour artwork and a wealth of interactive features. While retaining its compact size and focused coverage, the addition of further depth on selected topics ensures the book provides a firmer foundation in the subject than ever before, allowing greater flexibility of use. It is a perfect single text for those programmes that focus only on the essential principles, or a stepping-stone to more comprehensive texts for more extensive courses. Elements of Physical Chemistry is the ideal text for students with varied amounts of background knowledge, with support ranging from succinct reminders of key principles and brief illustrations of how to use equations, to fully worked-out examples and annotated equations. Online Resource Centre: For registered adopters of the book: * Figures and tables of data from the book, ready to download. * A test bank of additional multiple-choice questions, with feedback keyed to the book For students: * Web links to a range of additional physical chemistry resources on the web. Interactive ebook (free with purchase of the book) * Living Graphs and animations * Extra explanatory annotations and extra steps in equations * Pop-up comments on the source and further use of key equations * Interactive chapter summaries * Users able to add, share & print own notes. * Lecturers able to add additional sections to customise the text to match their course * Full text search, highlighting and bookmarks * Hidden answers to self tests and the questions from the end of the chapter * Quick navigation from key terms to glossary definitions, and from maths & physics comments to fuller explanations.
