3rd Edition. — Benjamin Cummings, 2007. — 768 p.Welcome to the world of chemistry-a world where everything around you can be traced to these incredibly tiny particles called atoms. Chemistry is the study of how atoms combine to form materials. By learning chemistry, you gain a unique perspective on what things are made of and why they behave as they do. Chemistry is a science with a very practical outlook. By understanding and controlling the behavior of atoms, chemists have been able to produce a broad range of new and usefuJ materials-alloys, fertilizers, pharmaceuticals, polymers, computer chips, recombinant DNA, and more. These materials have raised our standards of living to unprecedented levels. Learning chemistry, therefore, is worthwhile simply because of the impact this field has on society.Contents Chemistry Is a Molecular Science Elements of Chemistry Discovering the Atom and Subatomic Particles The Atomic Nucleus Atomic Models Chemical Bonding and Molecular Shapes Molecular Mixing Those Incredible Water Molecules An Overview of Chemical Reactions Acids and Bases Oxidation and Reduction Organic Compounds Chemicals of Life The Chemistry of Drugs Optimizing Food Production Fresh Water Resources Air Resources Material Resources Energy Resources Answers to Practice Sheets Solutions to Study Group Exercises Answers to Readiness Assurance Tests (RATs)
