Chemistry, 10th Edition

Book Description

This new edition of continues to incorporate a strong molecular reasoning focus, amplified problem-solving exercises, a wide range of real-life examples and applications, and innovative technological resources. With this text's focus on molecular reasoning, readers will learn to think at the molecular level and make connections between molecular structure and macroscopic properties. The Tenth Edition has been revised throughout and now includes a reorganization of the descriptive chapters to improve the flow of topics, a new basic math skills Appendix, an updated art program with new "talking labels" that fully explain what is going on in the figure, and much more.
