Physical Chemistry: A Guided Inquiry: Thermodynamics / Edition 1

Designed to encourage active and collaborative learning in the physical chemistry classroom, this text is a collection of group activities (ChemActivities) that can accompany any physical chemistry text. These ChemActivities teach students how to think like scientists, rather than simply memorizing important conclusions arrived at by great scientists of the past.
