A strong, experimental approach characterizes this text designed for science students enrolled in a mainstream general chemistry course. Students appreciate the logical organization and thorough integration of real, descriptive chemistry with chemical principles. Features: * The text focuses on the experimental approach and provides concrete examples to illustrate this, placing particular emphasis on observable chemistry. "Investigations in Chemistry" chapter opening essays emphasize from the outset the experimental theme. * Excellent writing style and concise descriptions makes the length of this text roughly 100 pages shorter than our competition. * Systematic problem-solving pedagogy uses flow charts to indicate the logical thinking strategies involved in problem-solving. New to this edition: * Organizational changes include the placement of thermochemistry in a separate chapter (directly following Stoichiometry), and the placement of kinetics preceding equilibrium. The thermochemistry and stoichiometry material has been split into two separate chapters. * The number and variety of end-of-chapter problems has doubled. The six different types of problems include spreadsheet problems and cumulative exercises. * The new teaching "showcase" illustrations provide a macroscopic-microscopic look at the molecular dynamics of events that occur during certain chemical reactions. * New boxed features entitled "Insight Into Chemistry" from contributing authors have been added. * A complete redesign of the text to enhance the clarity and natural flow of the presentation.
