Description

Emphasizing problem-solving and engineering approximation, this chemistry book provides engineers with an understanding of the entities (atoms, molecules, and ions) that are relevant to their lives and professional careers. Throughout the book, internet key word searching and graphing exercises take advantage of users' existing computer skills and encourages them to acquire new ones in designing, preparing, and interpreting graphs. Chapter topics cover atoms, elements, and measurements; nuclides, molecules, and ions; chemical reaction and stoichiometry; gases; quantum mechanics, and the periodic table; chemical bonding and chemical structure; chemical energy and the first law of thermodynamics; the second law of thermodynamics and chemical equilibrium; gas and solution equilibria; liquids and their mixtures; solids; phase diagrams and solutions; the periodic table and redox chemistry; electrochemistry; and rate processes. For engineers preparing for the professional certification exam.show more
