Book Description – Physical Chemistry by PW Atkins
Physical Chemistry by PW Atkins – Atkins’s Physical Chemistry is widely accepted by students and lecturers around the world as the textbook of choice for the study of physical chemistry. This international edition has been carefully developed to provide the necessary information, explanations, and guidance to master the subject. The content was broken down, organized into different topics, and grouped into broader focus to show the bigger picture. Atkins’s International Edition of Physical Chemistry closely matches the needs of both lecturers and students.
Extensive mathematical support includes the ‘Chemist’s Toolkit’, which provides students with brief reminders of mathematical concepts and techniques, and detailed annotations of mathematical derivations, broken down into clear steps with signposted ‘Physical Interpretation’ sections. Learning features throughout the lesson, such as a checklist of key concepts at the end of each focus, further help students study the topic.
The combination of comprehensive coverage, with a flexible and digestible structure, and use of learning features, make this International Edition of Atkins’ Physical Chemistry the textbook of choice for the study of physical chemistry.
