Overview

The eleventh edition was carefully reviewed with an eye toward strengthening the content available in OWLv2, end-of-chapter questions, and updating the presentation. Nomenclature changes and the adoption of IUPAC periodic table conventions are highlights of the narrative revisions, along with changes to the discussion of d orbitals. In-text examples have been reformatted to facilitate learning, and the accompanying Interactive Examples in OWLv2 have been redesigned to better parallel the problem-solving approach in the narrative. New Capstone Problems have been added to a number of chapters.

Darrell Ebbing has taught general chemistry for more than thirty years and is now retired from Wayne State University. He received his Ph.D. in physical chemistry from Indiana University.

Steven D. Gammon, University of Maine Fort Kent

Steven D. Gammon is the Provost at the University of Maine Fort Kent. In this role he continues to be engaged in working to provide exceptional educational experiences for students in chemistry, the sciences and other disciplines.
  • Each of the Example Problems have been formatted to provide a clearer path for student learning and the parallel OWLv2 Interactive Examples have been reimagined to better match the problem-solving approach and tools in the book.
  • New Capstone Problems have been added to a number of chapters.
  • Throughout the text, the authors adopted the terms “atomic weight”, “molecular weight”, and “formula weight” in place of corresponding terms “atomic mass”, “molecular mass”, and “formula mass”.
  • Throughout the text, the authors adopted IUPAC periodic table conventions.
  • Essays have been added, updated, and revised to reflect current understanding of a variety of relevant topics. Several “A Chemist Looks At” essays, including “Carbon Dioxide Gas and the Greenhouse Effect,” “Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR),” “Acid Rain,” “Limestone Caves,” and “Superconductivity”, were updated. New essays on “The Discovery of New Elements” and “Lithium-Ion Batteries” were added.
  • The discussion of electrostatic potential maps and the application of formal charge were improved.
  • New material was added explaining the modern view of bonding in central atoms having more than eight valence electrons.
  • In each chapter, “A Checklist for Review” is laid out to provide a variety of review help to students with different ways of learning. This checklist includes a summary of facts and concepts given in the chapter, a list of learning objectives and important terms, and a list of key equations described in the text.
  • A wide variety of end-of-chapter problem types are available to meet the demands of today’s varied students. This includes “Conceptual Problems” to help the student understand the basic concepts. In addition to a wealth of basic problem sets, there are also “Strategy Problems” to challenge students and “Capstone Problems” that combine skills from earlier chapters.
  • The essay series “A Chemist Looks At…” includes many contemporary topics, such as “The Discovery of New Elements” and “Lithium-Ion Batteries.” The essays on “Instrumental Methods” describe modern methods in chemistry, such as NMR and mass spectrometry. Both series of essays have accompanying end-of-chapter problems to help integrate the essays into the course.
  • A major feature of the text is the problem-solving program set forth in each Example Problem. The “Gaining Mastery Toolbox” lays out the critical concept involved in the problem, as well as the essential ideas required in its solution. After the problem statement, the example describes the problem strategy, followed by the solution and answer check (reminding the student of a vital step in problem-solving: reviewing the result for reasonableness). Interactive versions of examples are assignable in OWLv2.

Lab Manual Experiments in General Chemistry

ISBN: 9781305944985
Each experiment in this manual was selected to match topics in the textbook and includes an introduction, a procedure, a page of pre-lab exercises about the concepts the lab illustrates, and a report form. Some have a scenario that places the experiment in a real-world context and there are experiments designed for inquiry learning with limited guidance. For this edition, minor updates have been made to the lab manual to address some safety concerns. A new reminder was added to the safety section of the preface reminding readers to consult manufacturer’s data sheets. Experiment 5A was removed completely due to the use of mercury. Experiment 5B includes a new safety reminder in the experiment procedures cautioning students to use no more than one gram of potassium chlorate. Experiment 22A has been removed completely due to concern about the skin contact hazards.
