On most campuses the course in physical chemistry has a reputation for difficulty. It is not, nor should it be, the easiest course available; but to keep the matter in perspective it must be said that the IQ of a genius is not necessary for understanding the subject. The greatest stumbling block that can be erected in the path of learning physical chemistry is the notion that memorizing equations is a sensible way to proceed. Memory should be reserved for the fundamentals and important definitions. Equations are meant to be understood, not to be memorized. In physics and chemistry an equation is not a jumbled mass of symbols, but is a statement of a relation between physical quantities. As you study keep a pencil and scratch paper handy. Play with the final equation from a derivation. If it expresses pressure as a function of temperature, turn it around and express the temperature as a function of pressure. Sketch the functions so that you can "see" the variation. How does the sketch look if one of the parameters is changed? Read physical meaning into the various terms and the algebraic signs which appear in the equation. If a simplifying assumption has been made in the derivation, go back and see what would happen if that assumption were omitted. Apply the derivation to a different special case. Invent problems of your own involving this equation and solve them. Juggle the equation back and forth until you understand its meaning. In the first parts of the book much space is devoted to the meaning of equations; I hope that I have not been too long-winded about it, but it is important to be able to interpret the mathematical statement in terms of its physical content. By all means try to keep a good grasp on the fundamental principles that are being applied; memorize them and above all understand them. Take the time to understand the methods that are used to attack a problem. In Appendix I there is a brief recapitulation of some of the most important mathematical ideas and methods that are used. If any of these things are unfamiliar to you, take the time to review them in a mathematics text. Once the relations between variables have been established, the algebra and calculus are simply mechanical devices, but they should be respected as precision tools. If problems baffle you, learn the technique of problem solving. The principles contained in G. Polya's book, How to Solve It, have helped many of my students.* It is available as a paperback and is well worth studying. Work as many problems as possible. Numerical answers to all problems can be found in Appendix VII. Make up your own problems as often as possible. Watching your teacher perform will not make you into an actor; problem solving will. To aid in this, get a good "scientific" calculator (the serious student will want a programmable one with continuous memory) and learn how to use it to the limit of its capability. Reading the instructions will save you hundreds of hours! Finally, don't be put off by the reputation for difficulty. Many students have enjoyed learning physical chemistry. * G .

Chang's newest text is intended for use in a one-semester introductory course in physical chemistry for students of the biosciences. The author emphasizes the understanding of physical concepts rather than focussing on precise mathematical development or on actual experimental details. Only basic skills of differential and integral calculus are required to understand the equations. The extensive array of end of chapter problems have both physicochemical and biological applications, and a detailed Solutions Manual is available.

Mathematics for Physical Chemistry, Third Edition, is the ideal text for students and physical chemists who want to sharpen their mathematics skills. It can help prepare the reader for an undergraduate course, serve as a supplementary text for use during a course, or serve as a reference for graduate students and practicing chemists. The text concentrates on applications instead of theory, and, although the emphasis is on physical chemistry, it can also be useful in general chemistry courses. The Third Edition includes new exercises in each chapter that provide practice in a technique immediately after discussion or example and encourage self-study. The first ten chapters are constructed around a sequence of mathematical topics, with a gradual progression into more advanced material. The 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, objectives, and summary * 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

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.

Quantities, Units and Symbols in Physical Chemistry Third Edition The first IUPAC Manual of Symbols and Terminology for Physicochemical Quantities and Units (the "Green Book") of which this is a successor, was published in 1969, with the objective of 'securing clarity and precision, and wider agreement in the use of symbols, by chemists in different countries, among physicists, chemists and engineers, and by editors of scientific journals'. Subsequent revisions have taken account of many developments in the field, culminating in the major extension and revision represented by the 1988 edition under the title Quantities, Units and Symbols in Physical Chemistry. This third edition (2007) is a further revision of the material which reflects the experience of the contributors and users with the previous editions. The book has been systematically brought up to date and new sections have been added. It strives to improve the exchange of scientific information between different disciplines in the international pursuit of scientific research. In a rapidly expanding scientific literature where each discipline has a tendency to retreat into its own jargon, this book attempts to provide a compilation of widely used terms and symbols from many sources together with brief understandable definitions and explanations of best practice. Tables of important fundamental constants and conversion factors are included. Precise scientific language encoded by appropriate definitions of quantities, units and symbols is crucial for the international exchange in science and technology, with important consequences for modern industrial economy. This is the definitive guide for scientists, science publishers and organizations working across a multitude of disciplines requiring internationally approved nomenclature in the area of Physical Chemistry.

Inhalt des Teils III ist die thermodynamische und kinetische Beschreibung chemi scher Reaktionen, sozusagen das eigentliche Ziel der Physikalischen Chemie seit jeher. Die ersten beiden Teile stellen in diesem Sinne die physikalischen Grundlagen zur Behandlung reagierender Materie zur Verfügung; auf sie wird verwiesen, wenn es um molekül- oder systemspezifische Vorstellungen geht. Der Teil III beginnt nach einer Einfiihrung in die Thermochemie mit der Behandlung chemischer und elektrochemischer Reaktionen bzw. Gleichgewichte und geht dann in getrennten Kapiteln auf die Kinetik homogener und heterogener Reaktionen ein. Während die Gleichgewichtsthermodynamik von Reaktionen noch abgeschlossen darstellbar ist - Schwierigkeiten bereiten hier höchstens die verschie den definierten Standard- bzw. Bezugszustände - äußert sich in der Kinetik die große Vielfalt der Chemie an sich: Empirische Erfahrungen gepaart mit scheinbar gegensätzli chen Theorien und Vorstellungen. Dasselbe gilt auch für die Photochemie, die dort be ginnt, wo die Molekülspektroskopie endet. Der heutigen Auffassung folgend, wonach der Ablauf biologischer Reaktionen durch Prinzipien der irreversiblen Thermodynamik ge steuert wird, wurde ein abschließendes Kapitel über lineare und nichtlineare Prozesse neu verfaßt. Für wertvolle Diskussionen während und nach der Durchsicht des Manuskriptes bedanke ich mich bei Herrn Dr. H. Leitner und Frau Dipl.-Ing. I. Hollerer (TU Graz).
