About

Overview

Enhanced with a remarkable number of new problems and applications, the Third Edition of CHEMISTRY FOR ENGINEERING STUDENTS provides a concise, thorough, and relevant introduction to chemistry that prepares students for further study in any engineering field. Updated with even more questions and applications specifically geared toward engineering students, the book emphasizes the connection between molecular properties and observable physical properties and the connections between chemistry and other subjects studied by engineering students, such as mathematics and physics. This new edition is now fully supported by OWL, the most widely-used online learning system for chemistry.

Features and Benefits

  • "Insight Into" boxes focusing on new trends and innovations in chemistry and show connections between chemistry concepts and engineering applications.
  • Additional problems related to engineering applications have been added to every chapter.
  • Selected end-of-chapter problems (approximately 30%) are now available in OWL: Online Web Learning system.
  • "Insights Into" boxes lead off each chapter with engineering applications, that raise questions that are answered later in the chapter, show connections between chemistry concepts and engineering applications, and are supported by end-of-chapter problems.
  • "Focus on Problem Solving" sections at the end of each chapter support the book's problem-solving emphasis through a mix of multi-step quantitative and qualitative questions that require students to think outside the context of the information given and focus on the process of finding a solution to a problem, not the solution itself.
  • "Math Connections" boxes offer mathematical review at point of use, expanding and reviewing math concepts as they pertain to the particular topic being studied.
  • Detailed Example Problems illustrate good problem-solving practices by focusing on the reasoning of the solution as well as the calculations. "Strategy" sections first offer a way to solve the problem, then reinforce the solution with "Analyze Your Answer" sections (which walk students through a double check of their answers), then allow students to practice the skill with "Check Your Understanding" exercises.
  • A chapter summary and key terms (which include the section number where each term first appears) conclude each chapter to help students review and study for tests.

Author Bio

Lawrence S. Brown

Lawrence S. Brown (Ph.D, Princeton University) is a Senior Lecturer and coordinator for the general chemistry for engineers course at Texas A&M University. He received his B.S. in 1981 from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and his M. A. in 1983 from Princeton University. He was a Postdoctoral Fellow from 1986-88 at the University of Chicago. His research activities include active learning and use of technology in education and integration of chemistry with other subjects in the engineering curriculum. His current efforts are in (i) continued development of the CHEM 107 curriculum, (ii) improving uses of technology in chemical education, and (iii) incorporation of active learning strategies into large classroom settings. These efforts are brought together with the Foundation Coalition, an NSF-supported effort to implement a new model for the education of engineering students. Larry also monitors the CHEM 107 course for Texas A&M's campus in Qatar in the Middle East and has traveled there numerous times.

Tom Holme

Tom Holme (Ph.D, Rice University) is a chemistry professor at Iowa State University and Director of the ACS Examinations Institute. He is active in both computational chemistry and chemical education research and has been involved with the general chemistry for engineers course at both Iowa State and the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee. Some of his recent publications include: "Designing Chemistry Practice Exams for Enhanced Benefits: An Instrument for Comparing Performance and Mental Effort Measures," (Karen Knaus, Kristen Murphy and Thomas Holme), Journal of Chemical Education, 2009, in press; "Nanoscience Items for Standardized Exams in the Undergraduate Chemistry Curriculum" (Thomas Holme), in Nanoscale Science and Engineering Education: Issues, Trends and Future Directions, ed., A.E. Sweeny & S. Seal, American Scientific Publishers, Stevenson Ranch, CA, 2008; and "Assessing Problem-solving Strategies in Chemistry Using the IMMEX System" in Proceedings of the National STEM Assessment Conference, eds.
