Elements of Physical Chemistry

Seventh Edition

Peter Atkins and Julio de Paula

New to this Edition:

  • A radically updated structure to help improve digestibility and flexibility; the material has been broken down into short "Topics" that are organized into "Focus" sections
  • Three questions posed at the beginning of each "Topic" explain why it is important, what the key idea is, and what students already need to know
  • New "Collect Your Thoughts" features show students how they might go about approaching particular problems
  • New "Impact" sections online show the application of physical chemistry in a diverse range of modern contexts
  • Many derivations and worked examples now include more intermediate steps, helping students gain a deeper understanding of the underlying mathematics
