Atkins' Physical Chemistry remains the benchmark of achievement for a chemistry degree throughout the world. The judicious choice of topics, the clear writing style of both authors, and the careful exposition of maths, reaffirm the book's position as market leader. In the eighth edition the authors provide a more compact presentation through the careful restructuring and redistribution of material. The coverage of introductory topics has been streamlined, and later topics rationalized, bringing into sharper focus the scope of the text to mirror the needs of today's students and lecturers. Mathematics remains an intrinsic yet challenging part of physical chemistry; the new edition offers greater explanation and support, to ensure that students can master the important mathematical principles, without sacrificing the rigour and depth of its mathematical content. The pedagogical framework, which is a hallmark of Atkins' writing, has been strengthened further: new 'Notes on good practice' provide guidance on the use of terminology and help students to avoid common pitfalls; short 'Commentaries' remind students of the applications of mathematical and physical concepts, and provide useful cross-references to related resources in the book and on the accompanying companion web site. The eighth edition introduces new 'Impact on' sections which integrate the impact of physical chemistry on modern applications such as biology, biochemistry, medicine, nanoscience and astrophysics. All these exciting new features and innovations are presented within a new full colour text design, to stimulate and engage students still further. Online Resource Centre: The companion web site contains Living Graphs, illustrations from the book, and web links. An Instructor's Solutions Manual (free to adopters) and a Student's Solutions Manual are also available. The book is also complemented by a new edition of the 'Explorations in Physical Chemistry' CD, which contains interactive Excel worksheets and exercises related to the Living Graphs, allowing students to visualise, actively explore and test their understanding of the subject.
About this CDROM This CDROM is based upon Physical Chemistry, sixth edition. It has been designed to present the key ideas from the text in a concise and easily accessible way to aid reference and revision. The content structure is the same as the text, being divided into the same Parts, Chapters, Sections and Key Ideas or Topics (see Finding the Information You Want). The CDROM also contains most of the figures and the complete Data Section from Physical Chemistry, sixth edition, as well as additional Group Theory tables (see Using the Tables Screen). Most of the text and equations are taken from Concepts in Physical Chemistry by Peter Atkins. Additional features include: · Animations based on figures from Physical Chemistry, sixth edition (see Figures & Animations).· Interactive Living Graphs (see Using Living Graphs).· Self-contained Calculator, Curve Fitter, 2D Function Plotter and 3D Function Plotter programs (see The Calculator, Curve Fitter and Function Plotters).· Downloadable Resources section for downloading copies of figures, animations and tables for your own use (see Downloading Resources).
