Physics is a complex, even daunting topic, but it is also deeply satisfying even thrilling. And liberated from its mathematical underpinnings, physics suddenly becomes accessible to anyone with the curiosity and imagination to explore its beauty. Science without math? It's not that unusual. For example, we can understand the concept of gravity without solving a single equation. So for all those who may have pondered what makes blueberries blue and strawberries red; for those who have wondered if sound really travels in waves; and why light behaves so differently from any other phenomenon in the universe, it's all a matter of quantum physics. "Absolutely Small" presents (and demystifies) the world of quantum science like no book before. It explores scientific concepts from particles of light, to probability, to states of matter, to what makes greenhouse gases bad in considerable depth, but using examples from the everyday world. Challenging without being intimidating, accessible but not condescending, "Absolutely Small" develops the reader's intuition for the very nature of things at their most basic and intriguing levels.

"...this substantial and engaging text offers a wealth of practical (in every sense of the word) advice...Every undergraduate laboratory, and, ideally, every undergraduate chemist, should have a copy of what is by some distance the best book I have seen on safety in the undergraduate laboratory." Chemistry World, March 2011 Laboratory Safety for Chemistry Students is uniquely designed to accompany students throughout their four-year undergraduate education and beyond, progressively teaching them the skills and knowledge they need to learn their science and stay safe while working in any lab. This new principles-based approach treats lab safety as a distinct, essential discipline of chemistry, enabling you to instill and sustain a culture of safety among students. As students progress through the text, they'll learn about laboratory and chemical hazards, about routes of exposure, about ways to manage these hazards, and about handling common laboratory emergencies. Most importantly, they'll learn that it is very possible to safely use hazardous chemicals in the laboratory by applying safety principles that prevent and minimize exposures. Continuously Reinforces and Builds Safety Knowledge and Safety Culture Each of the book's eight chapters is organized into three tiers of sections, with a variety of topics suited to beginning, intermediate, and advanced course levels. This enables your students to gather relevant safety information as they advance in their lab work. In some cases, individual topics are presented more than once, progressively building knowledge with new information that's appropriate at different levels. A Better, Easier Way to Teach and Learn Lab Safety We all know that safety is of the utmost importance; however, instructors continue to struggle with finding ways to incorporate safety into their curricula. Laboratory Safety for Chemistry Students is the ideal solution: Each section can be treated as a pre-lab assignment, enabling you to easily incorporate lab safety into all your lab courses without building in additional teaching time. Sections begin with a preview, a quote, and a brief description of a laboratory incident that illustrates the importance of the topic. References at the end of each section guide your students to the latest print and web resources. Students will also find "Chemical Connections" that illustrate how chemical principles apply to laboratory safety and "Special Topics" that amplify certain sections by exploring additional, relevant safety issues.

In this unique textbook Jack Simons goes back to basics and focuses on the foundations that lie at the heart of modern day theoretical chemistry. Emphasis is on the concepts, tools and equations that govern the three main theoretical chemistry sub-disciplines: electronic structure, statistical mechanics and reaction dynamics. Part I provides the foundations of quantum mechanics and molecular spectroscopy as applied to chemistry today. This section can be used either as stand-alone material in a junior level physical chemistry class or to provide the reader with the tools and background needed to cover the second part of the book. Part II starts with a general overview of theoretical chemistry and then gives a very accessible introduction to each of the three main sub-disciplines in the subject. Highly illustrated with numerous exercises and worked solutions, this book provides a concise, up-to-date treatise on the underpinnings of modern theoretical chemistry.

Written primarily for undergraduate students of mathematics, science, or engineering, who typically take a course on differential equations during their first or second year. The main prerequisite is a working knowledge of calculus. The environment in which instructors teach, and students learn differential equations has changed enormously in the past few years and continues to evolve at a rapid pace. Computing equipment of some kind, whether a graphing calculator, a notebook computer, or a desktop workstation is available to most students. The seventh edition of this classic text reflects this changing environment, while at the same time, it maintains its great strengths - a contemporary approach, flexible chapter construction, clear exposition, and outstanding problems. In addition many new problems have been added and a reorganisation of the material makes the concepts even clearer and more comprehensible. Like its predecessors, this edition is written from the viewpoint of the applied mathematician, focusing both on the theory and the practical applications of differential equations as they apply to engineering and the sciences.

"Should be on every surface chemist's reading list." -Spectroscopy (on the Fifth Edition) Bridging the methodologies of "wet" and "dry" surface chemistry to present surface chemistry as a single broad field, Physical Chemistry of Surfaces, Sixth Edition retains its position as the standard work of surface science. This heavily revised and updated edition provides thorough coverage for students and professionals. New features of the Sixth Edition include: Expanded treatment of films at the liquid-air and liquid-solid interfaces, with contemporary techniques and macromolecular films Techniques for tunneling and atomic force scanning microscopes In-depth coverage of heterogeneous catalysis, including the case of CO on metals Increased emphasis on the flexible surface and restructuring of surfaces when adsorption occurs A new chapter on macromolecular films The book begins with the basics of the physical chemistry of liquid-gas and liquid-solid interfaces, including electro-chemistry, long-range forces, and the various methods of spectroscopic and structural study of surfaces. These are followed by descriptive treatments of topics such as friction, lubrication, adhesion and emulsion, foams, and aerosols. Closing chapters present a quantitative approach to physical and chemical adsorption of vapors and gases as well as heterogeneous catalysis. For senior-level undergraduates and graduate students, each chapter presents the basic surface chemistry of the topics with full derivations, end-of-chapter problems, and reviews of recent advances. This book is also an excellent reference for professional chemists interested in applying surface chemistry to their work.

The ubiquity of metal ions in biology has led to widespread interest in metallobiochemistry among biologists, chemists and biochemists. This book serves primarily as a textbook for courses in bio-inorganic chemistry, and as a supplement for courses in general inorganic, co-ordination, or solution chemistry. It does not cover all the details of inorganic biochemistry, being intended as a concise and solid introduction. It is aimed at senior undergraduate and graduate students (US designation), as well as scientists in the following disciplines: biological, inorganic and organic chemistry; chemical and environmental engineering; specialized research in molecular biology and the medical sciences; biophysics. Building from a firm basis in organic co-ordination and reaction chemistry, the biological chemistry of metal ions is developed. Emphasis is placed on chemical principles rather than the techniques employed. Specific examples have been chosen to illustrate important general principles.

This is the thoroughly revised and updated second edition of the hugely successful The Art of Electronics. Widely accepted as the single authoritative text and reference on electronic circuit design, both analog and digital, the original edition sold over 125,000 copies worldwide and was translated into eight languages. The book revolutionized the teaching of electronics by emphasizing the methods actually used by citcuit designers - a combination of some basic laws, rules to thumb, and a large nonmathematical treatment that encourages circuit values and performance. The new Art of Electronics retains the feeling of informality and easy access that helped make the first edition so successful and popular. It is an ideal first textbook on electronics for scientists and engineers and an indispensable reference for anyone, professional or amateur, who works with electronic circuits.

This book provides an introduction to colloid science, based on the application of the principles of physical chemistry. Early chapters assume only an elementary knowledge of physical chemistry and provide the basis for more thorough discussion in later chapters covering specific aspects of colloid science. The widespread occurrence of colloids is stressed and the more important industrial applications of colloid technology are outlined. The final chapter deals with the future of colloid science and indicates the directions in which further developments are likely to take place. The book is ideal for undergraduate courses and, supplemented by further reading, for postgraduates too. It will also be useful to industrial research workers who wish to become familiar with the basic ideas and their many important applications to industry.
