Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0815340893, Paperback)

This is a new undergraduate textbook on physical chemistry by Horia Metiu published as four separate paperback volumes. These four volumes on physical chemistry combine a clear and thorough presentation of the theoretical and mathematical aspects of the subject with examples and applications drawn from current industrial and academic research. By using the computer to solve problems that include actual experimental data, the author is able to cover the subject matter at a practical level. The books closely integrate the theoretical chemistry being taught with industrial and laboratory practice. This approach enables the student to compare theoretical projections with experimental results, thereby providing a realistic grounding for future practicing chemists and engineers. Each volume of Physical Chemistry includes Mathematica® and Mathcad® Workbooks on CD-ROM.

Metiu's four separate volumes-Thermodynamics, Statistical Mechanics, Kinetics, and Quantum Mechanics-offer built-in flexibility by allowing the subject to be covered in any order.

These textbooks can be used to teach physical chemistry without a computer, but the experience is enriched substantially for those students who do learn how to read and write Mathematica® or Mathcad® programs. A TI-89 scientific calculator can be used to solve most of the exercises and problems.

"This is the first undergraduate physical chemistry textbook to take full advantage of using the computer to illustrate calculations and show the connections between theory and practice. These four volumes combine a clear and thorough presentation of physical chemistry with examples and applications drawn from current industrial and academic research. Separate paperbacks allow flexibility in coverage." "By using the computer to solve problems that include experimental data, the author is able to present the subject matter at a practical level without oversimplifying. This provides a realistic grounding for future practicing chemists and engineers." "Physical Chemistry includes Mathematica' and Mathcad Workbooks on CD-ROM. These computer programs solve problems presented in the text, summarize the theory used, and display the calculations involved. Written in an engaging, informal style, the author's step-by-step explanation of the calculations in the text ensures that all volumes can also be used without a computer."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
