Chemical Principles written by Steven S. Zumdahl


Chemical Principles written by Steven S. Zumdahl


Although Chemical Principles is intended for students with solid mathematical preparation and prior exposure to chemistry, the author does not assume that students have a sophisticated grasp of chemical concepts.

  • Approximately 10 percent of the end-of-chapter problems are new, providing fresh sources of teaching material to instructors.
  • Approximately 20 percent of the boxed essays are new, presenting everyday applications of chemistry with an emphasis on engineering applications.
  • To create more effective teaching tools, more than 100 illustrations with a key focus on molecular-level illustrations have been redone. Selected important equations have also been emphasized by highlighting them in color.


Known for helping students develop the qualitative, conceptual foundation that gets them thinking like chemists, this market-leading text is designed for students with solid mathematical preparation and prior exposure to chemistry. The unique organization of the text supports this qualitative-to-quantitative approach. A strong emphasis on models and everyday applications of chemistry combines with a thoughtful, step-by-step problem solving approach to build conceptual understanding.


A rigorous introduction for chemistry majors who have been exposed to various aspects of the subject but have not been trained to think like a chemist. Tackles advanced topics in gases, atomic theory, thermodynamics, and other areas, but begins with the fundamentals and builds to a level required for complete understanding. Assumes a solid background in algebra but no knowledge of calculus; appends all the mathematical operations required; and uses differential and integral notations only when absolutely necessary and explains them on the spot. A battery of supplemental material is available for both students and instructors. Includes a glossary without pronunciation. No bibliography. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
