Physical Chemistry, 3rd Edition by Thomas Engel :: Review: The third edition of this book builds on user and reviewer comments on the previous editions. Our goal remains to provide students with an accessible overview of the whole field of physical chemistry while focusing on basic principles that unite the sub-disciplines of the field. We continue to present new research developments in the field to emphasize the vibrancy of physical chemistry. Many chapters have been extensively revised as described below. We include additional end-of-chapter concept problems and most of the numerical problems have been revised. The target audience remains undergraduate students majoring in chemistry, biochemistry, and chemical engineering, as well as many students majoring in the atmospheric sciences and the biological sciences. The following objectives, illustrated with brief examples, outline our approach to teaching physical chemistry.
Focus on teaching core concepts. The central principles of physical chemistry are explored by focusing on core ideas, and then extending these ideas to a variety of problems. The goal is to build a solid foundation of student understanding rather than cover a wide variety of topics in modest detail.
Illustrate the relevance of physical chemistry to the world around us.  Many students struggle to connect physical chemistry concepts to the world around them. To address this issue, example problems and specific topics are tied together to help the student develop this connection. Fuel cells, refrigerators, heat pumps, and real engines are discussed in connection with the second law of thermodynamics. The particle in the box model is used to explain why metals conduct electricity and why valence electrons rather than core electrons are important in chemical bond formation. Examples are used to show the applications of chemical spectroscopies. Every attempt is made to connect fundamental ideas to applications that are familiar to the student. Art is used to convey complex information in an accessible manner as in the images here of U.S. carbon dioxide emissions.
