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.
