Chang's newest text is intended for use in a one-semester introductory course in physical chemistry for students of the biosciences. The author emphasizes the understanding of physical concepts rather than focussing on precise mathematical development or on actual experimental details. Only basic skills of differential and integral calculus are required to understand the equations. The extensive array of end of chapter problems have both physicochemical and biological applications, and a detailed Solutions Manual is available.

Chemistry pervades our life, giving shape and character to the world around us. It moulds our climate, fuels our transport, gives food its taste and smell. Most of all, chemistry powers life itself. Chemistry for the Biosciences leads students through the essential concepts that are central to understanding biological systems, using everyday examples and analogies to build their confidence in an often daunting subject. Placing an emphasis on clear explanations, it fosters understanding as opposed to rote learning and, by focusing on the key themes that unify the subject, shows how integral chemistry is to the biosciences. With scientific research placing more emphasis on the interface of chemistry and biology than ever before, few can argue the importance to the biology student of mastering the essential chemical concepts that underpin the subject. Chemistry for the Biosciences is the ideal teaching and learning resource to ensure today's biology students grasp these concepts, and appreciate their importance throughout the subject. The Online Resource Centre features illustrations from the book available to download to facilitate lecture preparation and a test bank of multiple choice questions for students.

Perhaps nothing can better help students understand difficult concepts than working through and solving problems. By providing a strong pedagogical framework for self study, this Solutions Manual will give students fresh insights into concepts and principles that may elude them in the lecture hall. It features detailed solutions to each of the even-numbered problems from Raymond Chang's Physical Chemistry for the Biosciences. The authors approach each solution with the same conversational style that they use in their classrooms, as they teach students problem solving techniques rather than simply handing out answers. Illustrative figures and diagrams are used throughout. Book jacket.

Physical Chemistry for the Chemical Sciences

Author: Raymond Chang,John W. Thoman (Jr.)

Following in the wake of Chang's two other best-selling physical chemistry textbooks (Physical Chemistry for the Chemical and Biological Sciences and Physical Chemistry for the Biosciences), this new title introduces laser spectroscopist Jay Thoman (Williams College) as co-author. This comprehensive new text has been extensively revised both in level and scope. Targeted to a mainstream physical chemistry course, this text features extensively revised chapters on quantum mechanics and spectroscopy, many new chapter-ending problems, and updated references, while biological topics have been largely relegated to the previous two textbooks. Other topics added include the law of corresponding states, the Joule-Thomson effect, the meaning of entropy, multiple equilibria and coupled reactions, and chemiluminescence and bioluminescence. One way to gauge the level of this new text is that students who have used it will be well prepared for their GRE exams in the subject. Careful pedagogy and clear writing throughout combine to make this an excellent choice for your physical chemistry course.

Analysis 1

Anwendungsorientierte Mathematik. Funktionen, Differentialrechnung

Author: Gert Böhme

Publisher: Springer-Verlag

ISBN: 3642855857

Category: Science

Page: 492

View: 1297

Behandelt wird die "klassische" Analysis so breit und ausführlich, wie sie der spätere Anwender, der Ingenieur, Informatiker oder Wirtschaftswissenschaftler im Berufsleben benötigt: Elementare reelle Funktionen, komplexwertige Funktionen (Ortskurven), Differentialrechnung für Funktionen einer oder zweier Veränderlicher und deren Anwendung. Das Lehrbuch entspricht den Erfordernissen zum Gebrauch neben Servicevorlesungen an TU, TH und FH, zeichnet sich darüberhinaus durch sein anwendungsorientiertes, etwas breiter angelegtes Konzept aus und ist für das Selbststudium geeignet. Methodische und anschauliche Beschreibungen stehen im Vordergrund; das Maß an Abstraktion ist bewußt gering gehalten. Learning-by-doing wird erleichtert durch Übungsaufgaben mit vollständigen Lösungen.

Astrochemistry and Astrobiology is the debut volume in the new series Physical Chemistry in Action. Aimed at both the novice and experienced researcher, this volume outlines the physico-chemical principles which underpin our attempts to understand astrochemistry and predict astrobiology. An introductory chapter includes fundamental aspects of physical chemistry required for understanding the field. Eight further chapters address specific topics, encompassing basic theory and models, up-to-date research and an outlook on future work. The last chapter examines each of the topics again but addressed from a different angle. Written and edited by international experts, this text is accessible for those entering the field of astrochemistry and astrobiology, while it still remains interesting for more experienced researchers.

Alexander von Humboldt und die Erfindung der Natur

Author: Andrea Wulf

Publisher: C. Bertelsmann Verlag

ISBN: 3641195500

Category: Biography & Autobiography

Page: 560

View: 9360

Was hat Alexander von Humboldt, der vor mehr als 150 Jahren starb, mit Klimawandel und Nachhaltigkeit zu tun? Der Naturforscher und Universalgelehrte, nach dem nicht nur unzählige Straßen, Pflanzen und sogar ein »Mare« auf dem Mond benannt sind, hat wie kein anderer Wissenschaftler unser Verständnis von Natur als lebendigem Ganzen, als Kosmos, in dem vom Winzigsten bis zum Größten alles miteinander verbunden ist und dessen untrennbarer Teil wir sind, geprägt. Die Historikerin Andrea Wulf stellt in ihrem vielfach preisgekrönten – so auch mit dem Bayerischen Buchpreis 2016 – Buch Humboldts Erfindung der Natur, die er radikal neu dachte, ins Zentrum ihrer Erkundungsreise durch sein Leben und Werk. Sie folgt den Spuren des begnadeten Netzwerkers und zeigt, dass unser heutiges Wissen um die Verwundbarkeit der Erde in Humboldts Überzeugungen verwurzelt ist. Ihm heute wieder zu begegnen, mahnt uns, seine Erkenntnisse endlich zum Maßstab unseres Handelns zu machen – um unser aller Überleben willen.
