Editorial Reviews

Booknews
New edition of a text providing a clear, consistent methodology that a student can follow to develop conceptual and quantitative problem-solving skills. Analogies to daily life and the use of real-world problems aid in the application of scientific ideas to common events. Goldberg (Brooklyn College) presents 14 chapters that discuss basic concepts, measurement, atoms and atomic masses, electronic configuration of the atom, chemical bonding, nomenclature, formula calculations, chemical reactions, net ionic equations, stoichiometry, molarity, gases, atomic and molecular properties, and solids and liquids<-->energies of physical and chemical changes.
