PREFACE Learning chemistry can be an intimidating task. There is a tremendous quantity of infonnation, sometimes very abstract, and much of it might seem unrelated. Most freshman chemistry courses follow a certain progression, and Chemistry for Engineering Students is no exception. Try to visualize the "big picture" ofchemistry: describing different fonns of matter, expressing chemical reactions, utilizing chemical equations, understanding how and why reactions occur (bonding), and studying characteristics of chemical reactions (energy changes, rate, and equilibrium). This of course is a gross simplification of the course, but it helps sometimes to "see where you are going" in a subject such as chemistry. Chemistry, like a sport or a musical instrument, requires practice. Just sitting in class taking notes is usually not sufficient to master this subject. Students should take an active role in their learning process. Chapters should be read prior to coming to class and read agam after covering the material in class. Notes should be re-read and possibly re-written. Example problems in class should be scrutinized, and similar problems in the text found and worked. There is no doubt that all this chemistry practice (studying) requires a lot of time. If you are seeking the greatest success in your chemistry course you must be willing to commit a significant amount of time. Use of this student solutions manual! study guide can help make effective use of your time. Each chapter has four separate parts: 1. Each chapter starts with a list of study goals. These are the major concepts to be mastered in each section of the text chapters. End-of-chapter problem references are given to direct the student to specific problems relevant to each section. 2. Detailed solutions are then given for all odd-numbered problems in the text chapters. Emphasis is placed on solving problems in a logical, systematic fashion, an important skill for engineering students to acquire. The questions are included as well as the solutions to avoid having to look in both the text and the study guide while studying. 3. A chapter objective quiz follows. These are additional questions designed speCifically to target the chapter objectives outlined in the text....
