Problem-solving is one of the most challenging aspects students encounter in general chemistry courses leading to frustration and failure. Consequently, many students become less motivated to take additional chemistry courses after the first year. This book deals with calculations in general chemistry and its primary goal is to prevent frustration by providing students with innovative, intuitive, and systematic strategies to problem-solving in chemistry. The material addresses this issue by providing several sample problems with carefully explained step-by-step solutions for each concept. Key concepts, basic theories, and equations are provided and worked examples are selected to reflect possible ways problems could be presented to students.

Publisher: CRC Press

ISBN: 9780849347177

Category: Science

Page: 336

View: 2206

Concepts & Calculations in Analytical Chemistry: A Spreadsheet Approach offers a novel approach to learning the fundamentals of chemical equilibria using the flexibility and power of a spreadsheet program. Through a conceptual presentation of chemical principles, this text will allow the reader to produce and digest large assemblies of numerical data/calculations while still focusing on the chemistry. The chapters are arranged in a logical sequence, identifying almost every equilibrium scenario that an analytical chemist is likely to encounter. The spreadsheet calculations and graphics offer an excellent solution to otherwise time-consuming operations. Worked examples are included throughout the book, and student-tested problems are featured at the end of each chapter. Spreadsheet commands for QuattroPro, Quattro, and Lotus 1-2-3 are embedded in the text. Concepts & Calculations in Analytical Chemistry: A Spreadsheet Approach has been designed to serve both as a supplement to an undergraduate quantitative analysis course or as a text in a graduate-level advanced analytical chemistry course. Professional chemists will also find this to be an excellent introduction to spreadsheet applications in the lab and a modern overview of analytical chemistry in a self-study format.

View: 929

Ideas of Quantum Chemistry shows how quantum mechanics is applied to chemistry to give it a theoretical foundation. From the Schroedinger equation to electronic and nuclear motion to intermolecular interactions, this book covers the primary quantum underpinnings of chemical systems. The structure of the book (a TREE-form) emphasizes the logical relationships among various topics, facts and methods. It shows the reader which parts of the text are needed for understanding specific aspects of the subject matter. Interspersed throughout the text are short biographies of key scientists and their contributions to the development of the field. Ideas of Quantum Chemistry has both textbook and reference work aspects. Like a textbook, the material is organized into digestible sections with each chapter following the same structure. It answers frequently asked questions and highlights the most important conclusions and the essential mathematical formulae in the text. In its reference aspects, it has a broader range than traditional quantum chemistry books and reviews virtually all of the pertinent literature. It is useful both for beginners as well as specialists in advanced topics of quantum chemistry. An appendix on the Internet supplements this book. Presents the widest range of quantum chemical problems covered in one book Unique structure allows material to be tailored to the specific needs of the reader Informal language facilitates the understanding of difficult topics

Many undergraduate students enter into chemistry courses from a wide range of backgrounds, often possessing various levels of experience with the mathematical concepts necessary for carrying out practical calculations in chemistry. Chemical Calculations: Mathematics for Chemistry, Second Edition provides a unified, student-friendly reference of mathematical concepts and techniques incorporated into the context of familiar chemical topics. Uniquely organized by chemical—rather than mathematical—topics, this book relates each mathematical technique to the chemical concepts where it applies. The new edition features additional, revised, and updated material in every chapter. It achieves greater clarity with newly improved organization of topics and cross-referencing where mathematical techniques occur more than once. The text also contains numerous worked examples along with end-of-chapter exercises and detailed solution—giving students the opportunity to apply previously introduced techniques to chemically related problems. An ideal course companion for chemistry courses throughout the length of a degree, the second edition of Chemical Calculations: Mathematics for Chemistry may also extend its utility as a concise and practical reference for professionals in a wide array of scientific disciplines involving chemistry.

Culinary Reactions

The Everyday Chemistry of Cooking

Author: Simon Quellen Field

Publisher: Chicago Review Press

ISBN: 1569769605

Category: Cooking

Page: 288

View: 568

"When you're cooking, you're a chemist! Every time you follow or modify a recipe you are experimenting with acids and bases, emulsions and suspensions, gels and foams. In your kitchen you denature proteins, crystallize compounds, react enzymes with substrates, and nurture desired microbial life while suppressing harmful microbes. And unlike in a laboratory, you can eat your experiments to verify your hypotheses. In Culinary Reactions, author Simon Field explores the chemistry behind the recipes you follow every day. How does altering the ratio of flour, sugar, yeast, salt, butter, and water affect how high bread rises? Why is whipped cream made with nitrous oxide rather than the more common carbon dioxide? And why does Hollandaise sauce call for "clarified" butter? This easy-to-follow primer even includes recipes to demonstrate the concepts being discussed, including Whipped Creamsicle Topping (a foam), Cherry Dream Cheese (a protein gel), and Lemonade with Chameleon Eggs (an acid indicator). It even shows you how to extract DNA from a Halloween pumpkin. You'll never look at your graduated cylinders, Bunsen burners, and beakers -- er, measuring cups, stovetop burners, and mixing bowls -- the same way again"--
