Summary:
[This text] brings chemistry directly into students' lives at the same time that it teaches them the essential principles in a primarily qualitative way.-A guide to chemistry in your life. This is not a math-free textbook, however. The mathematics in topics such as molarity and the pH scale, half-lives, and linear and non-linear plots in graphs is introduced where appropriate in the main text. For courses in which  Read more...
