Chang's newest text is intended for use in a one-semester introductory course in physical chemistry for students of the biosciences. The author emphasizes the understanding of physical concepts rather than focussing on precise mathematical development or on actual experimental details. Only basic skills of differential and integral calculus are required to understand the equations. The extensive array of end of chapter problems have both physicochemical and biological applications, and a detailed Solutions Manual is available.For those intending to pursue graduate study in the biological sciences, the materials presented here will serve as an introduction to topics ... All the basic and essential topics in physical chemistry like thermodynamics, chemical kinetics , and bonding are treated in detail. ... A Solutions Manual written by Helen Leung and Mark Marshall containing full solutions to all even- numbered problems is available.
