About

Overview

Reflecting Cengage Learning's commitment to offering flexible teaching solutions and value for students and instructors, this new hybrid version features the instructional presentation found in the printed text while delivering all the end-of chapter exercises online in OWL, the leading online learning system for chemistry. The result—a briefer printed text that engages students online! This new Hybrid edition of CHEMISTRY continues to incorporate a strong molecular reasoning focus, amplified problem-solving exercises, a wide range of real-life examples and applications, and innovative technological resources. With this text's focus on molecular reasoning, your students will learn to think at the molecular level and make connections between molecular structure and macroscopic properties. The Tenth Edition has been revised throughout and now includes a reorganization of the descriptive chemistry chapters to improve the flow of topics, a new basic math skills Appendix, an updated art program with new "talking labels" that fully explain what is going on in the figure, and much more.

Features and Benefits

  • MOLECULAR REASONING AND VISUALIZATION EMPHASIS: Molecular reasoning is woven throughout the text in chapter objectives, chapter essays, examples, and end-of-chapter problems and highlighted by a molecular reasoning icon.
  • CHAPTER-OPENING APPLICATIONS AND "CHEMISTRY IN USE" BOXES: These built-in learning aids illustrate the practical applications of chemistry in such areas as the environment, the development of science, research and technology, and our daily lives.
  • "BEYOND THE TEXTBOOK" QUESTIONS: These end-of-chapter questions ask students to solve problems through the use of online exercises in OWL, as well as other materials.
  • "STOP & THINK" BOXES: Throughout the text, these boxes alert students to common mistakes and points of emphasis in problem solving.
  • PROBLEM-SOLVING TIPS: Woven throughout chapters to show students alternative ways to look at a problem and guide them through more complex subject areas, these tips are based on the authors' experiences in the classroom and sensitivity to difficulties that students face.
  • UNIFIED THERMODYNAMICS COVERAGE: Thermodynamics is covered in one chapter, offering a unified presentation that helps students develop a clearer understanding of this key topic.
  • A WIDE RANGE OF END-OF-CHAPTER EXERCISES: The book's assignable questions and exercises range from skill-building drill problems to more challenging "Conceptual Exercises," "Building Your Knowledge," and "Beyond the Textbook" problems.
  • CHAPTER PREVIEW LEARNING AIDS: Each chapter begins with a chapter outline and list of objectives to allow students to preview the chapter.
  • OWL ONLINE WEB LEARNING: Improve student learning outcomes with OWL, the #1 online homework and learning system for chemistry. Developed by chemistry instructors, OWL includes course management tools that simplify homework management as well as reporting and grade book features that save time in grading homework and tracking student progress. With OWL you can address different student learning styles through tutorials, simulations, visualization exercises, and algorithmically-generated homework questions with instant answer-specific feedback. With OWL's mastery learning approach, students work at their own pace until they understand each concept/skill.

What's New

  • REORGANIZATION OF DESCRIPTIVE CHEMISTRY CHAPTERS (22-28): To facilitate an improved flow of the descriptive chemistry topics optionally covered in many courses and to provide more convenient options for custom versions of the textbook, Chapters 22 through 28 have been reorganized as follows: Chapter 22 is now Nuclear Chemistry; Chapter 23, Organic Chemistry I: Formulas, Names and Properties; Chapter 24, Organic Chemistry II: Shapes, Selected Reactions, and Biopolymers; Chapter 25, Coordination Compounds; Chapter 26, Metals I: Metallurgy; Chapter 27, Metals II: Properties and Reactions; and Chapter 28, Some Nonmetals and Metalloids.
  • NEW BASIC MATH SKILLS APPENDIX: To aid the flow of introductory chemistry material in Chapter 1, a review of topics in basic mathematics skills, including scientific notation and use of significant figures, with numerous Examples, now appears in Appendix A. Related Exercises remain in the Measurements and Calculations area at the end of Chapter 1.
  • REORGANIZED INTRODUCTION TO AQUEOUS SOLUTIONS: Section 6-1 has been reorganized to improve the descriptive introduction to aspects of aqueous solutions, including ionization and dissociation, acids, bases, and solubility guidelines. These basic ideas are then elaborated in the classification of reactions in the remainder of Chapter 6 and serve as a foundation throughout the textbook for further discussion of physical and chemical properties of solutions.
  • MORE COMPREHENSIVE COVERAGE OF CENTRAL ATOM LONE PAIRS: In Chapter 8, a more comprehensive tabular summary of the influence of central atom lone pairs on molecular geometry has been added to enhance student understanding.
  • A REVISED AND UPDATED ART PROGRAM: The Tenth Edition's art program has been revised to include "talking labels" placed strategically within figures to explain what is going on in the illustration, so students can focus on learning instead of trying to figure out what is going on by going back and forth between a caption and the art. To exemplify the beauty and excitement of chemistry, the individual layouts of many figures have been revised to be more visually pleasing, balanced, and organized. The art program now includes more molecular models generated by the latest software to enhance the molecular reasoning theme. All electrostatic charge potential (ECP) art includes a more thorough explanation of its use.
  • ENHANCED OWL ONLINE WEB LEARNING: For the Tenth Edition, OWL now includes more parameterized end-of-chapter questions, encouraging students to practice multiple questions of the same type with different chemicals, wording, and numbers to ensure their mastery of the underlying chemical concepts. OWL also includes MindTap Reader. MindTap Reader is a free upgrade to existing readers in Cengage's existing digital platforms offering significant new functionality while also preparing the platforms to take advantage of future MindTap services.

He taught at Tulane, the University of Southwestern Louisiana, the Mississippi State College of Women, and the University of Alabama before joining the UGA faculty as assistant professor and coordinator of general chemistry in 1967. He remained coordinator of general chemistry throughout his UGA career until his retirement in 1998. His numerous awards include the G.E. Philbrook Chemistry Teacher of the Year Award, the Outstanding Honors Professor, the Franklin College Outstanding Teacher of the Year, the General Sandy Beaver Teaching Award, and a Senior Teaching Fellowship. An award was established in Dr. Whitten's honor in 1998 celebrating outstanding teaching assistants in UGA's department of chemistry.

Raymond E. Davis

Raymond Davis is a University Distinguished Teaching Professor at the University of Texas, Austin. He received his B.S. at the University of Kansas in 1960, his Ph.D. from Yale University in 1965, and was a Cancer Research Scientist at the Roswell Park Memorial Institute from 1964 to 1968. His awards include the Minnie Stevens Piper Professorship in 1992, the Jean Holloway Award in Chemistry Teaching in 1996, and (five times) the Outstanding Teacher Award given by campus freshman honor societies.
