Physical Chemistry third edition by Robert G. Mortimer textbook designed for a two-semester undergraduate physical chemistry course. The physical chemistry course is usually the first opportunity that a student has got to synthesize mathematical knowledge about chemistry into a coherent whole.
To facilitate this synthesis, the book is made about the thought of defining a system, studying the states in which it would be found, and analyzing the processes by which it can change its state.
The author of this book “Physical Chemistry third edition” is Robert G. Mortimer.
The book is split into four parts. The primary part focuses on the macroscopic properties of physical systems. It begins with the descriptive study of gases and liquids, and proceeds to the study of thermodynamics, which may be a comprehensive macroscopic theory of the behavior of fabric systems. The second part focuses on dynamics, including gas kinetic theory of gases, transport processes, and reaction kinetics. The third part presents quantum mechanics and spectroscopy. The one-fourth presents the relationship between molecular and macroscopic properties.
This theory is applied to the structure of condensed phases. The book is meant in order that the primary three parts are often studied in any order, while the one-fourth is meant to be a capstone during which the opposite parts are integrated into a cohesive whole.
In addition to the standard tables of integrals and numerical values of varied properties, the book contains several appendices that expand on discussions within the body of the text, like more detailed discussions of perturbation theory, group theory, and several mathematical topics. Each chapter begins with a statement of the principal facts and ideas that are presented within the chapter.
There’s a summary at the top of every chapter to assist in synthesizing the material of every chapter into a coherent whole. There are also marginal notes throughout the chapters that present biographical information and some comments.
Each chapter contains examples that illustrate various sorts of calculations, also as exercises placed within the chapter. Both these exercises and the problems at the top of every section are designed to supply practice in applying techniques. Answers to all or any of the numerical exercises and to the odd-numbered numerical problems are placed in Appendix K.
A solutions manual, with complete solutions to all exercises and every one odd-numbered problems, is out there from the publisher. An instructor’s manual with solutions to the even-numbered problems is out there on-line to instructors. The trainer can choose whether to permit students to possess access to the solutions manual, but can assign even-numbered problems when he or she wants the students to work problems without access to solutions.
