Atoms First General Chemistry

Greg Domski

By employing a student-centred writing style, Atoms First General Chemistry aims to help students understand atoms, ions, and molecules conceptually before they encounter the topics of stoichiometry, kinetics, and thermodynamics. Offering plentiful visuals, instructional and problem solving videos, interactive simulations and built-in assessment questions, the text is developed how today’s students consume and learn. This most recent revision includes a math supplement, a revised thermochemistry chapter, a new organic chemistry chapter and accessibility improvements.
