Buy
Written for students beginning a formal study of chemistry, this volume encompasses many different topics in and approaches to introductory chemistry. Chapters are devoted to topics such as the atom, elements and the periodic table, bonding, equilibrium and kinetics, solutions, acids and bases, and chemical reactions. Several chapters discuss broad areas of chemistry including organic chemistry, biochemistry, environmental chemistry, and industrial chemistry. Illustrations and diagrams help the student understand chemical structures and reactions, and numerous tables present a wealth of reference information. The historical developments of chemical concepts are traced, and biographical information is provided on key individuals responsible for the development of modern chemistry. Appendices include an extensive bibliography, a glossary of over 400 chemical terms, an overview of Nobel laureates in chemistry, and an element reference table. This book will be of use not only to students, but also to anyone seeking an overview of the field. Teachers of all grades can use Basics of Chemistry as a practical general reference.

Complex Variables Demystified
Complex Variables Demystified
Complex variables, and its more advanced version, complex analysis, is one of the most fascinating areas in pure and applied mathematics. It all started when mathematicians were mystified by equations that could only be solved if you could take the square roots of negative numbers. This seemed bizarre, and back then nobody could imagine that...
Advanced Batteries: Materials Science Aspects
Advanced Batteries: Materials Science Aspects
Energy is important to all of us, for a variety of reasons, but primarily because it can be useful. It can be found in a number of different forms. One readily recognizes the concepts of potential energy and kinetic energy, as well as the chemical energy in fuels, thermal energy as heat, the kinetic energy in wind and moving water, and magnetic and...
