Perhaps nothing can better help students understand difficult concepts than working through and solving problems. By providing a strong pedagogical framework for self study, this Solutions Manual will give students fresh insights into concepts and principles that may elude them in the lecture hall. It features detailed solutions to each of the even-numbered problems from Raymond Chang’s Physical Chemistry for the Biosciences. The authors approach each solution with the same conversational style that they use in their classrooms, as they teach students problem solving techniques rather than simply handing out answers. Illustrative figures and diagrams are used throughout.
Mark D. Marshall and Helen O. Leung are
faculty members in the chemistry department at Amherst College with over 30
years of combined experience teaching physical chemistry to undergraduates.
They maintain active research programs in high resolution molecular
spectroscopy of weakly bound species and reactant complexes and have appeared as
authors on 50 scientific papers. They
are both recent recipients of the Henry Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Award and both
received the John F. Burlew Award of the Connecticut Valley Section of
the American Chemical Society for outstanding contributions to chemistry in
their formative years. According to
their students, they bring “infectious enthusiasm and encouragement” to the
classroom and “make you think about the big picture.”
This is their second book.
