Need help in understanding the key concepts of aquaticchemistry?

If you're looking for a unique, thorough introduction to aquaticchemistry that is easy to understand, you have found it! The bookyou are now holding provides a detailed, hands-on introduction toaquatic equilibrium chemistry, calculation methods for systems atequilibrium, applications of aquatic chemistry, and chemicalkinetics.

More than just a presentation of facts, this essential textincludes equilibrium calculation software, which allows youto build complex models by applying equilibrium calculationprinciples.

This book has been designed to be easy to use and easy tounderstand. Here's how it works:

Each chapter begins with an introduction that provides a guideto chapter material and ends with a summary that reviews thechapter's main points.Important terms are defined in context and key ideas aresummarized in the margins.Thoughtful Pauses throughout the presentation provideprovocative questions whose answers are found in the text. Thissimulates the give-and-take found in the classroom.Examples illustrate key quantitative concepts.Each major division of the text begins with a case study. Aportion of the case study is addressed in each subsequent chapterillustrating the principles of that chapter.
