Introduction to Chemistry : a conceptual approach / Richard C. Bauer, James P. Birk, Pamela S. Marks.

By: Bauer, Richard C [autor]
Contributor(s): Birk, James P [autor] | Marks, Pamela S [autor]
Publisher: Dubuque, IA : Mc Graw Hill, ©2007Edition: 2nd edDescription: xviii, 705 [30] páginas : ilustraciones, cuadros, fotografías en color, gráficos ; 28 cmContent type: texto Media type: no mediado Carrier type: volumenISBN: 9780070172623Subject(s): Quimica organica | Quimica | SolidosDDC classification: 540
Contents:
Matter and energy. -- Atoms, Ions, and the periodic table. -- Chemical compounds. -- Chemical composition. -- Chemical reactions and equations. -- Quantities in chemical reactions. -- Electron structure of the Atom. -- Chemical bonding. -- The gaseous state. -- The liquid and solid states. -- Solutions. -- Reaction rates and chemical equilibrium. -- Acids and bases. -- Oxidation-reduction reactions. -- Nuclear chemistry. -- Organic Chemistry. -- Biochemistry.
Summary: This textbook is designed for the freshman-level Introductory Chemistry course that does not have a chemistry prerequisite and is suitable for either a one-semester course or a two-semester sequence. The book targets introductory courses taken by non-physical science majors who may be in allied health, agriculture, or other disciplines that do not require the rigor of a science major ́s General Chemistry course, or for students fulfilling university liberal arts requirements for science credits. In addition, students who lack a strong high school science background often take the course as a preparation for the regular General Chemistry sequence.

Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

"Introduction to Chemistry," 2e by Bauer/Birk/Marks offers today's student a fresh perspective to the introduction of chemistry. This new textbook offers a conceptual approach to chemistry by starting first with macroscopic phenomena, and then presenting the underlying microscopic detail. Each chapter opens with a real-life scenario that helps students connect abstract chemical concepts to their own lives. The math found in "Introduction to Chemistry," 2e is introduced on a need-to-know basis, with "Math Toolboxes" in select chapters to help support the math skills required in that chapter.

Incluye apéndice glosario e indice. -- Apéndice A. Useful reference information. -- B. Math toolboxes. -- C. Answers to practice problems. -- Answers to selected questions and problems.
