Physical Chemistry – David W. Ball – 1st Edition

Intended for the year long, calculus-based physical chemistry course for and engineering majors, PHYSICAL CHEMISTRY follows a traditional organization while concentrating on core topics. The text does not cover some higher level topics-for example, photochemistry, molecular beams, thermal physics, and polymers- found in some textbooks, and rarely covered in the undergraduate physical chemistry course, but more fully explains the elements of the discipline.

Written by a dedicated chemical educator and researcher, this text is intended for those who are trying to learn physical chemistry-a book that works as a textbook and not as an encyclopedia. Where appropriate, there is some focus on mathematical manipulations, providing with a review of calculus applications as applied to physical chemistry.
