A visual, conceptual and contemporary approach to Physical Chemistry

Engel and Reid’s Thermodynamics, Statistical Thermodynamics, and Kinetics provides a contemporary, conceptual, and visual introduction to physical chemistry. The authors emphasize the vibrancy of physical chemistry today and illustrate its relevance to the world around us, using modern applications drawn from biology, environmental science, and material science. The 4th Edition provides visual summaries of important concepts and connections in each chapter, offers students “just-in-time” math help, and expands content to cover science relevant to physical chemistry. Tutorials in Mastering Chemistry reinforce students’ understanding of complex theory in Quantum Chemistry and Thermodynamics as they build problem-solving skills throughout the course.

About the Book

  • Math Essentials provide a review of relevant math skills,  offer “just in time” math help, and enable students to refresh math skills specifically needed in the chapter that follows. Math Essentials is eleven two- to five-page sections that replace the previous edition’s Math Supplement and appear in the text just before students require the corresponding math skills.
  • Concept and Connection feature presents students with a quick visual summary of the most important ideas within each chapter. Highlighted in the margin, 10-15 of the most important concepts and connections in each chapter attract student attention to them.
  • Conceptual Questions and Numerical Problems appear in End-of-Chapter Problems.RevisedNumerical Problems are now organized by section number within chapters to make it easier for instructors to create assignments for specific parts of each chapter.
  • Updated - Introductory chapter material makes the importance of the chapter clear to students at the beginning of each chapter with a set of three questions that include responses.
  • Revised - Figures improve clarity with many providing additional annotation to help tie concepts to the visual program.


Also available with Mastering Chemistry

  • 66 Dynamic Study Modules help students study effectively on their own by continuously assessing their activity and performance in real time. Students complete a set of questions with a unique answer format that also asks them to indicate their confidence level. Questions repeat until the student can answer them all correctly and confidently. These are available as graded assignments prior to class and are accessible on smartphones, tablets, and computers.

  • Revised - Figures improve clarity with many providing additional annotation to help tie concepts to the visual program.
  • Key Equations allow students to focus on the most important of the many equations in each chapter. An end-of-chapter table that summarizes Key Equations and flags in red type where the equations appear in the body of the chapter.
  • A Further Reading list, added to each chapter, provides references for students and instructors who would like a deeper understanding of various aspects of the chapter material.
  • Modern applications—drawn from biology, environmental science, and material science—help give Physical Chemistry immediate relevance to students.
  • An emphasis on problem solving includes:
    • Numerous Worked Examples and highlighted Key Equations throughout help students understand the math and develop their own problem-solving skills.
    • Concept Questions, Quantitative Problems, and a unique set of problems related to the web-based simulations and animations at the end of each chapter offer students a variety of study and assessment resources.
  • Additional math-development resources, available in an Appendix, that provide a quick reference.
  • Current research is featured throughout along with new developments in the field, such as gap engineering, quantum dots, quantum wells, teleportation, and scanning tunneling microscopy to reflect the vibrancy of the field today.
  • Coverage of Computational Chemistry, including a distinct chapter written by Warren Hehre, transforms the teaching of chemical bonding and molecular structure from qualitative to quantitative. Many chapters include computational problems for which detailed instructions for the student are available in Mastering Chemistry for Physical Chemistry.
  • Research applications emphasize the dynamic nature of the field, and demonstrate the relevance of basic principles.

Author biography

Thomas Engel taught chemistry at the University of Washington for more than 20 years, where he is currently professor emeritus of chemistry. Professor Engel received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in chemistry from the Johns Hopkins University and his Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of Chicago. He then spent 11 years as a researcher in Germany and Switzerland, during which time he received the Dr. rer. nat. habil. degree from the Ludwig Maximilians University in Munich. In 1980, he left the IBM research laboratory in Zurich to become a faculty member at the University of Washington.

 

Professor Engel has published more than 80 articles and book chapters in the area of surface chemistry. He has received the Surface Chemistry or Colloids Award from the American Chemical Society and a Senior Humboldt Research Award from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. Other than this textbook, his current primary science interests are in energy policy and energy conservation. He serves on the citizen’s advisory board of his local electrical utility and his energy efficient house could be heated in winter using only a hand-held hair dryer. He currently drives a hybrid vehicle and plans to transition to an electric vehicle soon to further reduce his carbon footprint.

 

Philip Reid has taught chemistry at the University of Washington since 1995. Professor Reid received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Puget Sound in 1986 and his Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley in 1992. He performed postdoctoral research at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities before moving to Washington.

 

Professor Reid’s research interests are in the areas of atmospheric chemistry, ultrafast condensed-phase reaction dynamics, and organic electronics. He has published more than 140 articles in these fields. Professor Reid is the recipient of a CAREER Award from the National Science Foundation, is a Cottrell Scholar of the Research Corporation, and is a Sloan Fellow. He received the University of Washington Distinguished Teaching Award in 2005.
