Chemistry / Edition 2by Steven S. Zumdahl
Pub. Date: 04/28/1990
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
Zumdahl's conceptual approach to problem-solving, early and thorough treatment of reactions, and integration of descriptive chemistry and chemical principles throughout are key elements to the success of this bestseller. By encouraging students to understand qualitative concepts before considering quantitative problems, Chemistry helps students build a solid understanding of topics and avoid common misconceptions.
The text also includes new Chemical Impact boxes that present everyday applications of chemistry, plus over 200 redesigned illustrations with greater clarity and emphasis on molecular-level illustrations.
