Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0764554301, Paperback)

We’re all natural born chemists. Every time we cook, clean, take a shower, drive a car, use a solvent, such as fingernail polish remover, or perform any of the countless everyday activities that involve complex chemical reactions we’re doing chemistry. You might even say that we’re all participating in a grand chemistry experiment that started with the first human who mixed pigments to do a cave painting. Why do so many of us desperately resist learning chemistry when we’re young? Maybe it has something to do with the way it’s taught in school.

Now there’s a fun, easy way to learn basic chemistry. Whether you’re studying chemistry in school and you’re looking for a little help making sense of what’s being taught in class, or you’re just into learning new things for their own sake, Chemistry For Dummies gets you rolling with all the basics of matter and energy, atoms and molecules, acids and bases, and much more. In no time you’ll:Understand atomic structure and functionUse the Periodic Table of elementsKnow what happens when matter changes from one state to anotherExplore ionic and covalent bondingGet a handle on chemical reactionsPerform simple chemistry calculationsUnderstand acids, bases, pHs, antacids, and gasesMake sense Boyle’s Law, Avrogadro’s Law and other key laws in chemistry

Packed with examples of chemistry in action in everyday life, Chemistry For Dummies is a fascinating exploration of broad range of topics in chemistry, including:States of matter, from the macroscopic to the microscopicUnderstanding how the elements are arranged in the Periodic TableNuclear chemistry, radioactivity and radioactive decayPositive and negative ions and ionic compoundsCovalent bonding in covalent compoundsChemical reactions, chemical equilibrium, and electrochemistryThe mole and how it’s used to calculate chemical reactionsGreat serendipitous discoveries in chemistryEnvironmental chemistry

Written in plain English and requiring only basic math, Chemistry For Dummies puts you on the fast track to mastering the basics of chemistry.
