Publisher Comments:

Chemistry can be a daunting subject for the uninitiated, and all too often, introductory textbooks do little to make students feel at ease with the complex subject matter. Basic Chemistry Concepts and Exercises brings the wisdom of John Kenkel 's more than 30 years of teaching experience to communicate the fundamentals of chemistry in a practical, down-to-earth manner.

Using conversational language and logically assembled graphics, the book concisely introduces each topic without overwhelming students with unnecessary detail. Example problems and end-of-chapter questions emphasize repetition of concepts, preparing students to become adept at the basics before they progress to an advanced general chemistry course. Enhanced with visualization techniques such as the first chapter 's mythical microscope, the book clarifies challenging, abstract ideas and stimulates curiosity into what can otherwise be an overwhelming topic.

Topics discussed in this reader-friendly text include:

  • Properties and structure of matter
  • Atoms, molecules, and compounds
  • The Periodic Table
  • Atomic weight, formula weights, and moles
  • Gases and solutions
  • Chemical equilibrium
  • Acids, bases, and pH
  • Organic chemicals

The appendix contains answers to the homework exercises so students can check their work and receive instant feedback as to whether they have adequately grasped the concepts before moving on to the next section. Designed to help students embrace chemistry not with trepidation, but with confidence, this solid preparatory text forms a firm foundation for more advanced chemistry training.

Book News Annotation:

This text for an introductory general chemistry course uses a conversational writing style and simplified mathematics, emphasizing repetition of concepts with example problems and chapter exercises paired with explained answers. Coverage progresses from the properties and structure of matter through atomic structure, the periodic table, oxidation-reduction reactions, and organic chemicals. The text's two-color layout includes b&w illustrations. Online homework exercises are also provided. Kenkel teaches chemistry at Southeast Community College.

Synopsis:

At a minimum, most chemistry-based industries require a basic knowledge of chemistry in their laboratory technicians and plant operators. This book covers the underlying essential concepts of basic chemistry, starting with atoms and molecules and including chemical nomenclature, chemical bonding, chemical units and calculations, chemical equations, solution preparation, acid/base chemistry, and organic chemicals. The author uses an accessible style that employs numerous examples and homework problems to illustrate the concepts discussed in the text. This practical presentation of basic chemistry concepts is ideally suited as a refresher for chemical plant employees or as a text for students.
