For two-semester courses in General Chemistry.
Hill and Petrucci, two highly successful chemistry authors, take an exciting integrated approach to the concepts and applications of general chemistry. General Chemistry provides integrated coverage of organic and biochemistry; integrated applications; integrated tools that foster operational problem-solving skills and conceptual understanding; and an integrated media learning program. More than any other, this text offers balance—in the topics presented, in its approach to problem solving, and in its presentation of the subject of chemistry. Equal emphasis is placed on both conceptual and quantitative problem solving. The Second Edition works to make chemistry more understandable to the average student, and features new and expanded coverage of key chemistry topics such as organic chemistry, biochemistry, material science, and environmental chemistry. More problems have been added, including illustrated problems and molecular models.
