Chemistry: Structure and Properties

By Nivaldo J. Tro

NOTE: it is a standalone product.

Bestselling writer Niva Tro has consistently believed “the habit of topic is dependent upon the homes of molecules and atoms” to be crucial discovery in clinical wisdom. this concept is the whole issue for his seminal new text— Chemistry: constitution and Properties.  Dr. Tro emphasizes the connection among constitution and homes, establishes a special method of educating chemistry via providing atomic and bonding theories early within the textual content, and stresses key issues all through. The e-book is geared up to give chemistry as a logical, cohesive tale from the microscopic to the macroscopic, so scholars can appreciate the theories and framework in the back of the chemical proof. each subject has been rigorously crafted to express to scholars that the connection among constitution and homes is the thread that weaves all of chemistry together.

While constructed independently of alternative Tro texts, Chemistry: constitution and Properties accommodates the author’s vibrant writing sort, chemical rigor, dynamic multi-level pictures, and proven beneficial properties. His constant conceptual concentration and step by step problem-solving framework encourages you to imagine via methods instead of easily memorize content material.

If you ought to buy either the actual textual content and MasteringChemistry look for ISBN-10: 0321729730/ISBN-13: 9780321729736. That package deal comprises ISBN-10: 0321834682/ISBN-13: 9780321834683 and ISBN-10: 0321934105/ISBN-13: 9780321934109.

What's in My Food?: 75 Additives & 25 Grocery Staples Visually Explored

By Steve Ettlinger, Dwight Eschliman

In the bestselling culture of The components and Salt Sugar Fat, an remarkable visible exploration of what's relatively inside of our meals, atmosphere the list directly at the debatable and engaging technology of chemical and artificial ingredients in processed food—from Twinkies and McNuggets to natural protein bars and fit shakes.
What’s really on your food?

We’ve all learn the materials label at the again of a can, field, or bag from the grocer. yet what do all these mysterious-sounding chemical compounds and ingredients really do?

Focusing on seventy five of the commonest nutrition ingredients and 25 traditional nutrition items that comprise them, acclaimed photographer Dwight Eschliman and technology author Steve Ettlinger demystify the contents of processed foodstuff. jointly they demonstrate what each one additive seems like, the place it comes from, and the way and why it's used.

Plutonium: A History of the World's Most Dangerous Element

By Jeremy Bernstein

When plutonium was once first synthetic at Berkeley within the spring of 1941, there has been so little of it that it used to be no longer obvious to the bare eye. It took a 12 months to acquire adequate in order that you will really see it. Now lots has been produced that we do not understand what to do to put off it. we've got created a monster.

The historical past of plutonium is as unusual because the aspect itself. whilst scientists begun searching for it, they did so easily within the spirit of inquiry, no longer convinced even if there have been nonetheless spots to fill at the periodic desk. however the discovery of fission made it transparent that this still-hypothetical aspect will be greater than only a medical curiosity―it may be the major aspect of a robust nuclear weapon. because it grew to become out, it really is solid for nearly not anything else. Plutonium's nuclear strength positioned it on the center of the realm battle II fingers race―the Russians figured out approximately it via espionage, the Germans via self sufficient learn, and everyone sought after a few. Now it really is warehoused round the world―the usa on my own possesses approximately forty-seven metric tons―but it has virtually no useful use open air its position in nuclear weaponry. How did the fabricated from medical interest turn into one of these harmful burden?

In his heritage of this complicated and hazardous point, famous physicist Jeremy Bernstein describes the stairs that have been taken to remodel plutonium from a laboratory novelty into the nuclear weapon that destroyed Nagasaki. this is often the 1st ebook to weave jointly the numerous strands of plutonium's tale, explaining not just the technology but additionally the folk involved.
