"Some Helpful Problem-Solving Tools for First-Year Chemistry Students" is an extensive collection of useful explanations, tips, tools, tables and numerous worked examples specifically tailored to first-year college chemistry students. In addition, the book introduces a powerful general problem-solving methodology that is effective for both chemistry and physics word problems.
This book is a “must have” for those students who need a little extra help in solving typical problems seen in general chemistry courses. Topics covered include the proper use of a calculator, constructing and using conversion factors, the SI prefixes, balancing chemical equations including redox equations, solving multiple types of stoichiometry problems, limiting reactant, actual yield, theoretical yield, percent yield, quantum mechanics including quantum numbers, thermodynamics, and a unique, general approach to chemistry problem solving. In addition, the book includes an extensive listing of equations and formulas typically seen in first-year chemistry courses. This book is the result of countless one-on-one and small-group problem-solving sessions held by the author throughout his career with students of various ages and backgrounds.Add To Cart
