A long-established leader in liberal arts chemistry, John Suchocki’s Conceptual Chemistry continues to take a student-centered approach in the new Fifth Edition. This robust program uses a conversational writing style to engage and involve non-science majors, helping them visualize the behavior of atoms and molecules to understand our macroscopic environment. With a focus on fundamental concepts – not mathematical models.
This edition features the exact same content as the traditional text in a convenient, three-hole- punched, loose-leaf version. Books à la Carte also offer a great value–this format costs 35% less than a new textbook. Written for the non-science major, this text emphasizes modern physics and the scientific process—and engagesyou by drawing connections between physics and everyday experience. Hobson takes a conceptual approach, with an appropriate focus on quantitative skills. The Fifth Edition increases coverage of key environmental topics such as global warming and energy, and adds new topics such as momentum. Hobson's text remains the least expensive textbook available for students taking nonmajors physics.
ENERGY: ITS USE AND THE ENVIRONMENT, Fifth Edition, emphasizes the physical principles behind energy and its effects on our environment. The text explains the basic physical principles behind the use of energy, including the study of mechanics, electricity and magnetism, thermodynamics, and atomic and nuclear physics. It also covers crucial environmental questions that currently are receiving much public attention, such as global warming, radioactive waste, municipal solid waste, and nuclear energy production materials. The text can be used in physics, technology, physical science, and environmental science courses for non-science majors. Many of the standard topics found in introductory physics textbooks are included. As a result, this book can be used as the text in a conceptual physics course with energy as the central theme. No math or other science prerequisite is necessary. Important Notice: Media content referenced within the product description or the product text may not be available in the ebook version.
