This new edition of Robert G. Mortimer's Physical Chemistry has been thoroughly revised for use in a full year course in modern physical chemistry. In this edition, Mortimer has included recent developments in the theories of chemical reaction kinetics and molecular quantum mechanics, as well as in the experimental study of extremely rapid chemical reactions. While Mortimer has made substantial improvements in the selection and updating of topics, he has retained the clarity of presentation, the integration of description and theory, and the level of rigor that made the first edition so successful.
* Emphasizes clarity; every aspect of the first edition has been examined and revised as needed to make the principles and applications of physical chemistry as clear as possible.
* Proceeds from fundamental principles or postulates and shows how the consequences
of these principles and postulates apply to the chemical and physical phenomena being studied.
* Encourages the student not only to know
the applications in physical chemistry but to understand where they come from.
* Treats all topics relevant to undergraduate physical chemistry.

Praise for the first edition: "[T]his text has all the necessary ingredients to be used for a two-semester undergraduate physical chemistry course... Anyone teaching physical chemistry will want to have a copy of this book as a reference. Professors will find the figures and problems to be particularly useful." --Journal of Chemical Education "Robert Mortimer's book provides an in-depth and clear presentation of the subject. The chapter problems and examples are useful in giving students exercise in what they have read." --David Lawson, University of Michigan-Dearborn "This text is my new favorite thermo/kinetics book. It presents both the concepts and relevant equations in a clear, understandable fashion and moves easily from basic or review concepts to more advanced topics." --Cynthia M. Woodbridge, Hillsdale College "Mortimer's Physical Chemistry textbook is well written, complete, and it will be easily read by students and instructors. The material covered is current and concise, and the in-chapter and end-of-chapter problems enhance the students' learning experience. I recommend this book." --Jason D. Hofstein, Siena CollegeAbout the Author:
