Overview

Introductory Chemistry, Third Edition helps readers master the quantitative skills and conceptual understanding they need to gain a deep understanding of chemistry. Unlike other books on the market that emphasize rote memory of problem-solving algorithms, Introductory Chemistry takes a conceptual approach with the idea that focusing on the concepts behind chemical equations helps readers become more proficient problem solvers. What Is Chemistry?, The Numerical Side of Chemistry, The Evolution of Atomic Theory, The Modern Model of the Atom 1, Chemical Bonding and Nomenclature, The Shape of Molecules, Chemical Reactions, Stoichiometry and the Mole, The Transfer of Electrons from One Atom to Another in a Chemical Reaction Intermolecular Forces and the Phases of Matter, What If There Were No Intermolecular Forces?, The Ideal Gas Solutions, When Reactants Turn into Products, Chemical Equilibrium, Electrolytes, Acids, and Bases, Nuclear Chemistry, The Chemistry of Carbon, Synthetic and Biological Polymers. For all readers interested in introductory chemistry.
