Description: If the text you're using for general chemistry seems to lack sufficient mathematics and physics in its presentation of classical mechanics, molecular structure, and statistics understandable, this supplement may be what you're looking for. Written to provide supplemental and mathematically challenging topics for the advanced lower-division undergraduate chemistry course or the nonmajor, junior-level physical chemistry course, The Physical Basis of Chemistry, Second Edition offers your students an opportunity to explore quantum mechanics, the Boltzmann distribution, and spectroscopy in a refreshing way. Posed and answered are questions concerning everyday phenomena: How can two discharging shotguns and two stereo speakers be used to contrast particles and waves? Why does a collision between one atom of gas and the wall of its container transfer momentum but not much energy? How does a microwave oven work? Why does carbon dioxide production heat the earth? Why are leaves green and water blue, and how do our eyes detect the difference? Unlike other texts on this subject, however, The Physical Basis of Chemistry, Second Edition deals directly with the substance of these questions, avoiding the use of predigested material more appropriate for memorization exercises than for acutal concrete learning. The only prerequisite is first-semester calculus or familiarity with one-variable derivatives. In this new edition, the entire text has been rewritten and keyed with an accompanying CD-ROM, which contains instructive QuickTime movies on topics presented in the text to enhance student learning and participation.
