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.

Principles of Physical Chemistry presents a novel approach to physical chemistry that emphasizes the use of a few fundamental principles to quantitatively describe the nature of molecules and their assemblies. It begins with atoms and molecules, using the electron-in-a-box model to illustrate the essential features of quantum mechanics and why atoms and molecules exist. Thermodynamics is not introduced in the classical manner, considering the first and second law as postulates, but approached by studying assemblies of molecules statistically. The authors proceed to molecular assemblies of increasing complexity, evolving from ideal gases to real gases and solutions, then to macromolecules and supramolecular machines, and ending with the search for the logical conditions and chemical requirements for physicochemical processes leading to life's origin, the emergence of matter that carries information. This text is ideal for both undergraduate and graduate courses in physical chemistry, providing a basis for understanding the nature of chemical processes in biology, chemistry, and engineering.
Multidisciplinary Applications in Society
Author: Kenneth S Schmitz
The advancements in society are intertwined with the advancements in science. To understand how changes in society occurred, and will continue to change, one has to have a basic understanding of the laws of physics and chemistry. Physical Chemistry: Multidisciplinary Applications in Society examines how the laws of physics and chemistry (physical chemistry) explain the dynamic nature of the Universe and events on Earth, and how these events affect the evolution of society (multidisciplinary applications). The ordering of the chapters reflects the natural flow of events in an evolving Universe: Philosophy of Science, the basis of the view that natural events have natural causes - Cosmology, the origin of everything from the Big Bang to the current state of the Universe - Geoscience, the physics and chemistry behind the evolution of the planet Earth from its birth to the present - Life Science, the molecules and mechanisms of life on Earth - Ecology, the interdependence of all components within the Ecosphere and the Universe - Information Content, emphasis on how words and phrases and framing of issues affect opinions, reliability of sources, and the limitations of knowledge. Addresses the four Ws of science: Why scientists believe Nature works the way it does, Who helped develop the fields of science, What theories of natural processes tell us about the nature of Nature, and Where our scientific knowledge is taking us into the future Gives a historical review of the evolution of science, and the accompanying changes in the philosophy of how science views the nature of the Universe Explores the physics and chemistry of Nature with minimal reliance on mathematics Examines the structure and dynamics of the Universe and our Home Planet Earth Provides a detailed analysis of how humans, as members of the Ecosphere, have influenced, and are continuing to influence, the dynamics of events on the paludarium called Earth Presents underlying science of current political issues that shape the future of humankind Emphasizes how words and phrases and framing of issues can influence the opinions of members of society Makes extensive use of metaphors and everyday experiences to illustrate principles in science and social interactions

This book offers an account of the field of physical chemistry as it has evolved over the years, from its emergence as a distinct discipline in the late 19th century through today's miracle discoveries. The book covers all of the main branches of physical chemistry: thermodynamics, kinetic theory, statistical mechanics, spectroscopy, electrochemistry, quantum chemistry, and colloid and surface chemistry. It describes the difficulties faced by early investigators resulting from attitudes of the churches, governments, and even the universities, which tended to emphasize classical studies. The book also discusses the ways in which physical scientists have communicated with each other over the course of the discipline's history. Teachers, researchers and students of physical chemistry as well as physicists and historians of science will find this lively book interesting and informative.
