Description-

  • A PROVEN formula for mastering CHEMISTRY

    Trying to understand chemistry but feel like the information's just not bonding with your brain? Here's your solution. Chemistry Demystified, Second Edition, helps you grasp both fundamental and complex concepts with ease.

    Written in a step-by-step format, this practical guide first covers atomic theory, elements, symbols, and the Periodic Table of the Elements. The book then delves into solids, liquids, gases, solutions, orbitals, chemical bonds, acids, and bases. Electrochemistry, thermodynamics, biochemistry, and organic, environmental, and nuclear chemistry are discussed. In-depth examples, detailed illustrations, and worked-out problems make it easy to understand the material, and end-of-chapter quizzes and a final exam help reinforce learning.

    It's a no-brainer! You'll learn about:

  • Molecular and structural formulas
  • Metallurgy
  • Gas laws
  • Molar mass
  • Molecular orbital theory
  • Covalent and ionic bonds
  • Oxidation/reduction
  • The laws of thermodynamics
  • Organic reactions
  • Biological and environmental markers

    Simple enough for a beginner, but challenging enough for an advanced student, Chemistry Demystified, Second Edition, helps you master this fascinating subject.
