Physical Chemistry – Thermodynamics, Structure, and Change 10th Edition by Peter Atkins and de Paula :: This new edition is the product of a thorough revision of content and its presentation. Our goal is to make the book even more accessible to students and useful to instructors by enhancing its flexibility. We hope that both categories of user will perceive and enjoy the renewed vitality of the text and the presentation of this demanding but engaging subject. The text is still divided into three parts, but each chapter is now presented as a series of short and more readily mastered Topics. This new structure allows the instructor to tailor the text within the time constraints of the course as omissions will be easier to make, emphases satisfied more readily, and the trajectory through the subject modified more easily. For instance, it is now easier to approach the material either from a ‘quantum first’ or a ‘thermodynamics first’ perspective because it
is no longer necessary to take a linear path through chapters. Instead, students and instructors can match the choice of Topics to their learning objectives. We have been very careful not to presuppose or impose a particular sequence, except where it is demanded by common sense.
We open with a Foundations chapter, which reviews basic concepts of chemistry and physics used through the text. Part 1 now carries the title Thermodynamics. New to this edition is coverage of ternary phase diagrams, which are important in applications of physical chemistry to engineering and materials science. Part 2 (Structure) continues to cover quantum theory, atomic and molecular structure, spectroscopy, molecular assemblies, and statistical thermodynamics. Part 3 (Change) has lost a chapter dedicated to catalysis, but not the material. Enzyme-catalysed reactions are now in Chapter 20, and heterogeneous catalysis is now part of a new Chapter 22 focused on surface structure and processes.
As always, we have paid special attention to helping students navigate and master this material. Each chapter opens with a brief summary of its Topics. Then each Topic begins with three questions: ‘Why do you need to know this material?’, ‘What is the key idea?’, and ‘What do you need to know already?’. The answers to the third question point to other Topics that we consider appropriate to have studied or at least to refer to as background to the current Topic. The Checklists at the end of each Topic are useful distillations of the most important concepts and equations that appear in the exposition.
This edition has more worked Examples, which require students to organize their thoughts about how to proceed with complex calculations, and more Brief illustrations, which show how to use an equation or deploy a concept in a straightforward way. Both have Self-tests to enable students to assess their grasp of the material. We have structured the end-of-chapter Discussion questions, Exercises, and Problems to match the grouping of the Topics, but have added Topic and Chapter-crossing Integrated activities to show that several Topics are often necessary to solve a single problem. The Resource section has been restructured and augmented by the addition of a list of integrals that are used (and referred to) throughout the text.

[PDF] Physical Chemistry – Thermodynamics, Structure, and Change by Peter Atkins and de Paula Table Of Contents

It occupies fourteen pages. Here is a succinct overview:

Chemistry is the science of matter and the changes it can
undergo. Physical chemistry is the branch of chemistry that
establishes and develops the principles of the subject in terms
of the underlying concepts of physics and the language of
mathematics. It provides the basis for developing new spectroscopic
techniques and their interpretation, for understanding
the structures of molecules and the details of their electron
distributions, and for relating the bulk properties of matter
to their constituent atoms. Physical chemistry also provides a
window on to the world of chemical reactions, and allows us to
understand in detail how they take place.

A Matter
Throughout the text we draw on a number of concepts that
should already be familiar from introductory chemistry, such
as the ‘nuclear model’ of the atom, ‘Lewis structures’ of molecules,
and the ‘perfect gas equation’. This Topic reviews these
and other concepts of chemistry that appear at many stages of
the presentation.

B Energy
Because physical chemistry lies at the interface between
physics and chemistry, we also need to review some of the
concepts from elementary physics that we need to draw on in
the text. This Topic begins with a brief summary of ‘classical
mechanics’, our starting point for discussion of the motion
and energy of particles. Then it reviews concepts of ‘thermodynamics’
that should already be part of your chemical
vocabulary. Finally, we introduce the ‘Boltzmann distribution’
and the ‘equipartition theorem’, which help to establish
connections between the bulk and molecular properties of
matter.

C Waves
This Topic describes waves, with a focus on ‘harmonic waves’,
which form the basis for the classical description of electromagnetic
radiation. The classical ideas of motion, energy, and
waves in this Topic and Topic B are expanded with the principles
of quantum mechanics (Chapter 7), setting the stage for
the treatment of electrons, atoms, and molecules. Quantum
mechanics underlies the discussion of chemical structure
and chemical change, and is the basis of many techniques of
investigation
