Chemistry 10th Edition by Raymond Chang | PDF Free Download.
Raymond Chang was born in Hong Kong and grew up in Shanghai and Hong Kong. He received his B.Sc. degree in chemistry from London University, England, and his Ph.D. in chemistry from Yale University.
After doing postdoctoral research at Washington University and teaching for a year at Hunter College of the City University of New York, he joined the chemistry department at Williams College, where he has taught since 1968.
Professor Chang has served on the American Chemical Society Examination Committee, the National Chemistry Olympiad Examination Committee, and the Graduate Record Examinations (GRE) Committee. He is an editor of The Chemical Educator.
Professor Chang has written books on physical chemistry, industrial chemistry, and physical science. He has also co-authored books on the Chinese language, children’s picture books, and a novel for young readers.
For relaxation, Professor Chang maintains a forest garden; plays tennis, Ping-Pong, and the harmonica; and practices the violin.
From the first edition, my aim has been to write a general chemistry text that provides a firm foundation in chemical concepts and principles and to instill in students an appreciation of the vital part chemistry plays in our daily life.
It is the responsibility of the textbook author to assist both instructors and their students in their pursuit of this objective by presenting a broad range of topics in a logical manner.
I have tried to strike a balance between theory and application and to illustrate basic principles with everyday examples whenever possible.
In this tenth edition, as in previous editions, my goal is to create a text that is clear in explaining abstract concepts, concise so that it does not overburden students with unnecessary extraneous information, yet comprehensive enough so that it prepares students to move on to the next level of learning.
The encouraging feedback I have received from instructors and students has convinced me that this approach is effective.
NEW to the chapters is a Review of Concepts. This is a quick knowledge test for the student to gauge his or her understanding of the concept just presented.
The answers to the Review of Concepts are available in the Student Solutions Manual and on the companion ARIS (Assessment, Review, and Instruction System) website.
NEW are powerful connections to electronic homework. All of the practice exercises for the Worked Examples in all chapters are now found within the ARIS (Assessment, Review, and Instruction System) electronic homework system. Each end-of-chapter problem in ARIS is noted in the Electronic Homework Problem section.
Many NEW end-of-chapter problems with a graphical representation of molecules have been added to test the conceptual comprehension and critical thinking skills of the student. The more challenging problems are listed under the Special Problems section.
NEW computer-generated molecular orbital diagrams are presented in Chapter 10.
Many sections have been revised and updated based on the comments from reviewers and users. Some examples include:
— Revised the treatment of Amounts of Reactants and Products in Chapter 3.
— Revised the explanation of thermochemical equations in Chapter 6.
— Expanded coverage on effective nuclear charge in Chapter 8.
— Revised the treatment of the orientation factor in Chapter 13.
— Revised the discussion of entropy in Chapter 18.
— Added a new Chemistry in Action (Boron Neutron Capture Therapy) in Chapter 23.
The development of problem-solving skills has always been a major objective of this text. The two major categories of learning are the worked examples and end of chapter problems.
Many of them present extra tidbits of knowledge and enable the student to solve a chemical problem that a chemist would solve. The examples and problems show students the real world of chemistry and applications to everyday life situations.
Worked examples follow a proven step-by-step strategy and solution.
— Problem statement is the reporting of the facts needed to solve the problem based on the question posed.
— Strategy is a carefully thought-out plan or method to serve as an important function of learning.
— Solution is the process of solving a problem given in a stepwise manner.
— Check enables the student to compare and verify the source information to make sure the answer is reasonable.
— Practice Exercise provides the opportunity to solve a similar problem in order to become proficient in this problem type.
The Practice Exercises are available in the ARIS electronic homework system. The marginal note lists additional similar problems to work in the end-of-chapter problem section.
End-of-Chapter problems are organized in various ways. Each section under a topic heading begins with Review Questions followed by Problems.
The Additional Problems section provides more problems not organized by sections. Finally, the Special Problems section contains more challenging problems.
