Physical Chemistry

Robert J. Silbey and Robert A. Alberty, 2001, John Wiley & Sons, Inc.,  969 pp., hardbound.  

Physical Chemistry offers the basic academic theory of physical chemistry. The text contains reference appendices and sections on thermodynamics, quantum chemistry, statistical mechanics and kinetics, and macroscopic and microscopic structures. Included in the book are many practical problems with applications from physical chemistry, two sets of chapter problems, computer problems for use with Mathematica, as well as hand-held calculator problems. The solutions manual contains answers to the calculator problems. Mathematica notebooks supply the solutions for each of the 136 computer problems. 

Chapters include: Zeroth Law of Thermodynamics and Equations of State; First Law of Thermodynamics; Second and Third Laws of Thermodynamics; Fundamental Equations of Thermodynamics; Chemical Equilibrium; Phase Equilibrium; Electrochemical Equilibrium; Ionic Equilibria and Biochemical Reactions; Quantum Theory; Atomic Structure; Molecular Electronic Structure; Symmetry; Rotational and Vibrational Spectroscopy; Electronic Spectroscopy of Molecules; Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy; Statistical Mechanics; Kinetic Theory of Gases; Experimental Kinetics and Gas Reactions; Chemical Dynamics and Photochemistry; Kinetics in the Liquid Phase; Macromolecules; Electric and Magnetic Properties of Molecules; Solid-State Chemistry; Surface Dynamics; plus appendix and index.

A solutions manual of 229 pages (paperback) is also available. 

This book is available from the Wolfram Worldwide Web Store.
