This elegant book provides a student-friendly introduction to the
subject of physical chemistry. It is by the author of the very
successful Basic Chemical Thermodynamics and is written in the same
well-received popular style. It is concise and more compact than
standard textbooks on the subject and emphasises the two important
topics underpinning the subject: quantum mechanics and the second
law of thermodynamics. Both topics are challenging to students
because they focus on uncertainty and probability. The book
explains these fundamental concepts clearly and shows how they
offer the key to understanding a wide range of chemical phenomena
including atomic and molecular spectra, the structure and
properties of solids, liquids and gases, chemical equilibrium and
the rates of chemical reactions. This revised edition has enabled
improvements and corrections to be made.
