Elements of Physical Chemistry Fifth Version by Peter Atkins and Julio de Paula
PREFACE to Elements of Physical Chemistry
When a e-book enters its fifth version you would possibly count on a sure maturity and a settling down into a cushty center if not outdated age.
We hope you’ll determine the previous however not the latter. We be taught enormously from every new version and prefer to refresh the exposition and introduce new concepts at each alternative.
We hope that you will note maturity definitely but additionally a brand new vibrancy on this version. The construction of the e-book stays a lot the identical as within the fourth version, however with a small reorganization of chapters, such because the reversal of the order of the teams of chapters on Supplies.
We’ve additionally introduced collectively beneath varied umbrella titles the associated chapters to provide a better sense of cohesion.
Thus there’s a Chemical Equilibrium household, a Chemical Kinetics household, a Quantum Chemistry household, a Supplies household, and a Spectroscopy household.
All through the textual content we now have had in thoughts one principal goal: to make sure that the protection is suitable to a single compact bodily chemistry course.
Because of this, we now have eradicated some materials however (with our eyes alert to the risks of increasing the textual content unduly) have strengthened the dialogue of a variety of subjects.
One facet of the vibrancy of presentation that we now have sought to attain is that the complete artwork programm has been redrawn in full coloration.
Because of this, we hope that not solely will you get pleasure from utilizing the e-book greater than earlier editions however discover the illustrations far more informative.
We’ve paid extra consideration to the presentation of arithmetic on this version. We launched ‘bubbles’ within the fourth version: they comprise remarks concerning the steps being taken to develop an equation.
We’ve taken this well-liked function a lot additional on this version, and have added many extra bubbles. The inexperienced bubbles point out the right way to proceed throughout an equals signal; the pink bubbles point out the that means of phrases in an expression.
On this version we now have launched one other new function that ought to assist you along with your research: every chapter now has a Guidelines of key equations following the Guidelines of key concepts, which now summarizes solely the ideas.
A supply of confusion within the fourth version was the use of the time period Illustration: some thought it meant a diagram; others a brief instance.
We’ve renamed all of the quick examples A short illustration, in order that confusion ought to now be prevented. These temporary illustrations have been joined by A short remark and we now have retained and expanded the favored Notes on good apply.
proportion of the end-of chapter Workouts have been modified or changed; we now have added Tasks, relatively concerned workout routines that usually name for the use of calculus.
The brand new options are summarized within the following In regards to the e-book part. As all the time within the preparation of a brand new version we now have relied closely on recommendation from customers all through the world, our quite a few translators into different languages, and colleagues who’ve given their time within the reviewing course of.
We’re vastly indebted to them, and have discovered quite a bit from them. They’re recognized and thanked within the Acknowledgements part.
