Mathematics for Physical Chemistry is the ideal supplementary text for practicing chemists and students who want to sharpen their mathematics skills while enrolled in general through physical chemistry courses. This book specifically emphasizes the use of mathematics in the context of physical chemistry, as opposed to being simply a mathematics text. This 4e includes new exercises in each chapter that provide practice in a technique immediately after discussion or example and encourage self-study. The early chapters are constructed around a sequence of mathematical topics, with a gradual progression into more advanced material. A final chapter discusses mathematical topics needed in the analysis of experimental data. Numerous examples and problems interspersed throughout the presentations Each extensive chapter contains a preview and objectives Includes topics not found in similar books, such as a review of general algebra and an introduction to group theory Provides chemistry-specific instruction without the distraction of abstract concepts or theoretical issues in pure mathematics

Applied Mathematics for Physical Chemistry

Author: James R. Barrante
Publisher: Waveland Press
ISBN: 9781478633006
Release Date: 2016-02-10
Genre: Science

By the time chemistry students are ready to study physical chemistry, they’ve completed mathematics courses through calculus. But a strong background in mathematics doesn’t necessarily equate to knowledge of how to apply that mathematics to solving physicochemical problems. In addition, in-depth understanding of modern concepts in physical chemistry requires knowledge of mathematical concepts and techniques beyond introductory calculus, such as differential equations, Fourier series, and Fourier transforms. This results in many physical chemistry instructors spending valuable lecture time teaching mathematics rather than chemistry. Barrante presents both basic and advanced mathematical techniques in the context of how they apply to physical chemistry. Many problems at the end of each chapter test students’ mathematical knowledge. Designed and priced to accompany traditional core textbooks in physical chemistry, Applied Mathematics for Physical Chemistry provides students with the tools essential for answering questions in thermodynamics, atomic/molecular structure, spectroscopy, and statistical mechanics.

Physical Chemistry

Author: John S. Winn
Publisher: Harper Collins Publisher Incorporated
ISBN: UOM:39076001771182
Release Date: 1995-01-01
Genre: Science

This text presents physical chemistry as a coherent whole, rather than a set of disjointed topics, and shows how the subject relates to the rest of chemistry and physics. It emphasizes physical models as well as mathematical techniques, along with both rigorous and approximate (order-of-magnitude) problem-solving. Designed to progress beyond a numerical answer, problems expose the physical significance of the situation and teach students how to pose a problem in the first place. In addition, modern molecular concepts, currently unanswered problems in research, experimental techniques, and new directions in the field are introduced wherever appropriate. An orderly progression of thermodynamics carefully builds students' knowledge without covering too much too early on. Chemical reaction thermodynamics is covered in Chapter 7, after the culmination of thermodynamics, with advanced material in Chapter 10.

Genre: Science

The advancements in society are intertwined with the advancements in science. To understand how changes in society occurred, and will continue to change, one has to have a basic understanding of the laws of physics and chemistry. Physical Chemistry: Multidisciplinary Applications in Society examines how the laws of physics and chemistry (physical chemistry) explain the dynamic nature of the Universe and events on Earth, and how these events affect the evolution of society (multidisciplinary applications). The ordering of the chapters reflects the natural flow of events in an evolving Universe: Philosophy of Science, the basis of the view that natural events have natural causes - Cosmology, the origin of everything from the Big Bang to the current state of the Universe - Geoscience, the physics and chemistry behind the evolution of the planet Earth from its birth to the present - Life Science, the molecules and mechanisms of life on Earth - Ecology, the interdependence of all components within the Ecosphere and the Universe - Information Content, emphasis on how words and phrases and framing of issues affect opinions, reliability of sources, and the limitations of knowledge. Addresses the four Ws of science: Why scientists believe Nature works the way it does, Who helped develop the fields of science, What theories of natural processes tell us about the nature of Nature, and Where our scientific knowledge is taking us into the future Gives a historical review of the evolution of science, and the accompanying changes in the philosophy of how science views the nature of the Universe Explores the physics and chemistry of Nature with minimal reliance on mathematics Examines the structure and dynamics of the Universe and our Home Planet Earth Provides a detailed analysis of how humans, as members of the Ecosphere, have influenced, and are continuing to influence, the dynamics of events on the paludarium called Earth Presents underlying science of current political issues that shape the future of humankind Emphasizes how words and phrases and framing of issues can influence the opinions of members of society Makes extensive use of metaphors and everyday experiences to illustrate principles in science and social interactions
