Description

Essential Mathematics for Chemists is ideally suited for students who have a limited mathematical background and who wish to build their confidence in the use of mathematics that is relevant to their chemistry studies. John Gormally has many years' experience of teaching mathematics to chemistry students and has set out specifically to address common difficulties in understanding the subject. Assuming little knowledge of mathematics, this book first introduces basic skills in handling numbers before covering key topics relevant to chemistry including functions, elementary algebraic manipulation, differential and integral calculus and matrix algebra. The order of the chapters reflects the way in which chemistry courses are often structured and relates to both lecture and laboratory courses. Self-test questions are provided within the text and answers are given at the end of each chapter. Together with the numerous worked examples and sets of graded problems provided, these will help students to acquire relevant skills and gain confidence.show more
