The Second Revised Edition Of The Book Is Intended To Meet The Requirement Of The Students Of Science, Engineering And Other Professional Courses At The Undergraduate Level. It Has Been Planned Strictly In Line With The Syllabi Of Various Indian Universities Who Have Adopted The New Ten-Plus-Two-Plus-Three Pattern Of Education. A New Chapter On Macromolecules Has Been Added, Thus Making A Total Of 27 Chapters In The Revised Edition. Chapters On Chemical Equilibrium, Colligative Properties, Atomic Structures, Chemical Bonding Have Been Thoroughly Reshuffled And Rewritten. Chaper 25 Has Been Rearranged And Divided Into Two Chapters Viz., Molecular Spectroscopy And Electrical And Magnetic Properties. New Sections Have Been Added To Chapters On Gaseous State, Colligative Properties, Electrolytic Conduction, Ionic Equilibria, Chemical Kinetics, Atomic Structure And Chemical Bonding. Other Chapters Have Also Been Modified And Redesigned.The Subject Matter Has Been Given In A Logical, Simple And Lucid Language. The Main Aim Has Been On Self Learning. Some More Diagrams And Illustrations Have Been Added In This Edition For Explaining The Basics And The Fundamentals Of The Subject. Conventional Problems In The Earlier Edition Have Been Dropped, But General And Objective Type Problems Are Retained. A Considerable Number Of Worked-Out Problems Have Been Included In Most Of The Chapters. These Would Expose The Students To Applications Of Various Concepts And Fundamentals Of The Subject.The Revised Text Largely Uses Si Units But Cgs Units Have Been Retained In Those Cases Where The Si Units Have Not As Yet Been Fully Appreciated.We Have Attempted To Present A Revised Text That Effectively Provides Clean, Accurate And Balanced Views On Various Topics To Grasp The Fundamentals Of The Subject More Clearly, Comprehensively And Concretely. The Book Should Meet The Requirements Of Students.
A Textbook of Physical Chemistry: Second Edition provides both a traditional and theoretical approach in the study of physical chemistry. The book covers subjects usually covered in chemistry textbooks such as ideal and non-ideal gases, the kinetic molecular theory of gases and the distribution laws, and the additive physical properties of matter. Also covered are the three laws of thermodynamics, thermochemistry, chemical equilibrium, liquids and their simple phase equilibria, the solutions of nonelectrolytes, and heterogenous equilibrium. The text is recommended for college-level chemistry students, especially those who are in need of a textbook for the subject.
This book has been successfully guiding undergraduate students of science, engineering and pharmacy of the Indian universities since 1978 due to its approach of teaching the subject in the simplest possible way.The book emphasizes on fundamental rather than excessive details and develops the topics from the first principles. It contains a considerable number of worked-out examples exposing the students to practical applications of equations and helping them comprehend the magnitude of many different physiochemical quantities. Both the traditional cgs/esu and the newer SI systems of units have been used identically. This is so because in spite of wider acceptance of the SI units, the cgs units continue to be used in most chemical literature.New in this Edition• Quick Recap' section with every chapter to bring the concepts on fingertips• Vastly augmented section on MCQs for complete comprehension• Additional review questions to make them broad based• Revised and updated topics
This comprehensive textbook, now in its second edition, is mainly written as per the latest syllabi of physical chemistry of all the leading universities of India as well as the new syllabus recommended by the UGC. This thoroughly revised and updated edition covers the principal areas of physical chemistry, such as thermodynamics, quantum chemistry, molecular spectroscopy, chemical kinetics, electrochemistry and nanotechnology. In a methodical and accessible style, the book discusses classical, irreversible and statistical thermodynamics and statistical mechanics, and describes macroscopic chemical systems, steady states and thermodynamics at a molecular level. It elaborates the underlying principles of quantum mechanics, molecular spectroscopy, X-ray crystallography and solid state chemistry along with their applications. The book explains various instrumentation techniques such as potentiometry, polarography, voltammetry, conductometry and coulometry. It also describes kinetics, rate laws and chemical processes at the electrodes. In addition, the text deals with chemistry of corrosion and nanomaterials. This text is primarily designed for the undergraduate and postgraduate students of chemistry (B.Sc. and M.Sc.) for their course in physical chemistry. Key Features • Gives a thorough treatment to ensure a solid grasp of the material. • Presents a large number of figures and diagrams that help amplify key concepts. • Contains several worked-out examples for better understanding of the subject matter. • Provides numerous chapter-end exercises to foster conceptual understanding.
A thorough understanding of the principles and basic concepts of physical chemistry is essential for a good grasp of the subject. This book is the sixth of the earlier five volume series, which provides an extensive coverage of the topics discussed focu
