Nothing can better help students understand difficult concepts than working through and solving problems. By providing a strong pedagogical framework for self study, this Solutions Manual will give students fresh insights into concepts and principles that may elude them in the lecture hall. It features detailed solutions to each of the even-numbered problems from Raymond Chang and Jay Thoman’s Physical Chemistry for the Chemical Sciences. The authors approach each solution with the same conversational style that they use in their classrooms, as they teach students problem solving techniques rather than simply handing out answers. Illustrative figures and diagrams are used throughout.
Mark D. Marshall and Helen O. Leung, shown at
right in their microwave spectroscopy lab, are
faculty members in the chemistry department at Amherst College. They have over
years of combined experience teaching physical chemistry to undergraduates, and maintain active research programs in high resolution molecular
spectroscopy of weakly bound species and reactant complexes. They
are both recent recipients of the Henry Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Award and both
received the John F. Burlew Award of the Connecticut Valley Section of
the American Chemical Society for outstanding contributions to chemistry in
their formative years.

classroom and “make you think about the big picture.”
They are authors on more than 60 scientific papers, and this is their
