Ira N. Levine's fifth edition of Physical Chemistry provides students with an in-depth fundamental treatment of physical chemistry. At the same time, the treatment is made easy to follow by giving full step-by-step derivations, clear explanations and by avoiding advanced mathematics unfamiliar to students. Necessary math and physics have thorough review sections. Worked examples are followed by a practice exercise.

Spreadsheet applications are included: Practical applications requiring the use of spreadsheets are introduced in the appropriate chapters. The student will learn to use spreadsheets for a polynomial fit (Sec. 5.6), to solve simultaneous reaction equilibria (Sec. 6.5), to predict vapor pressures from an equation of state (Sec. 8.5), and to predict liquid-liquid phase diagrams (Sec. 12.11).
Molecular Electronic Structure chapter is rewritten: The chapter has new sections on performing quantum chemistry calculations (Sec. 20.12), the molecular-mechanics method (Sec. 20.13), and density-functional theory (DFT) (Sec. 20.10), which is currently the most widely used method for obtaining accurate molecular properties. The chapter also has added coverage of semi-empirical methods. Twenty-two new problems including problems requiring the use of quantum chemistry programs are also included.
Additional material on biochemical and environmental applications has been added. Examples are gel and capillary electrophoresis of DNA and proteins and the use of partition coefficients to estimate bioconcentration factors.
New problems added throughout the text require thought rather than calculation and allow students to quickly assess how well they are learning the material.
The in-chapter examples are written to lead the student to a clearly worked-out answer. The examples are followed by a corresponding exercise requiring the student to practice the same thought process. The answer for each exercise is also given.
Clarity of Writing: The writing is clear and easy to follow. Technical terms and concepts are introduced with the necessary background information to understand the basis for bringing them into the discussion.
Completeness: The book gives the student careful definitions and explanations of concepts, full details of most derivations, and reviews of relevant topics in mathematics and physics. A mix of theoretical and practical applications is presented.
