This text covers the major topics of an undergraduate physical chemistry course (two semesters). The text is a primer meant to supplement and extend traditional texts and provide a helpful second concise perspective on topics. The approach used here makes this text useful as an aid in reviewing topics and problem solving throughout the study of physical chemistry and in preparing for exams. This text takes advantage of iBooks features by including review questions, enabling note taking, a hyper-linked glossary, live web-links, and other enhancements. The text benefits from the authors several years of teaching physical chemistry to undergraduates in an interactive and engaging manner.
Chapters: 1. Quantum View of Chemistry 2. Molecules in Motion and Chemical Kinetics 3. Energy and Spontaneity 4. Quantum Chemical Principles 5. Spectroscopy: Probing Molecules with Light 6. Tools of the Trade: Analysis and Mathematical Software to Get the Job done.
