Overview

Designed for first year university students studying chemistry, and students taking physical chemistry as part of their degree course, this workbook is comprised of eight main sections covering revision of key elements. There are some 68 examples and 139 exercises through which students' ability and confidence with tackling quantitative calculations will be developed, beginning with material based on pre-university knowledge through to topics such as chemical equilibrium that are featured in first year university courses. The important equations are collected together at the end of each section for easy reference, and a list of useful mathematical formulae is included. Students can work through the book as self-paced individuals or in groups, alongside traditional lecture courses.
