Physical Chemistry – Gilbert William Castellan – 3rd Edition

Physical chemistry is the quantitative study of the physical properties of matter, including their transformations. The properties of macroscopic matter at equilibrium (such as the relationships among temperature, pressure, and volume in gases; heat capacity of solids; solubility of saturated ; melting and boiling temperatures; and of electrolyte , to name a few) are historically among the earlier interests of physical chemistry.

In this third edition, core applications have been added along with more recent developments in the theories of reaction kinetics and molecular quantum mechanics, as well as in the experimental study of extremely rapid reactions.

* Fully revised concise edition covering recent developments in the field
* Supports student learning with step by step explanation of fundamental principles, an appropriate level of math rigor, and pedagogical tools to aid comprehension
