Appropriate for junior-level courses, the modernized new edition of Halpern and McBane’s physical chemistry lab manual offers an exceptional variety of tested and proven experiments—as well as detailed theoretical background material and clearly stated procedural objectives to help students understand the context and purpose of each procedure. The manual is well suited to accompany Atkins/de Paula, Physical Chemistry, Eighth Edition, but it works equally well as a stand-alone manual or with any other text.
In addition, the labs represent challenging, quantitative determinations of properties that can be checked against literature values; and, in many cases, they demonstrate the advantages that the computer offers in data acquisition, data analysis, and also in the computation of physical chemical properties.
