# Physical Chemistry book , 3rd edition by Robert G. Mortimer

####
**preface of This book**

The book is divided into four parts.
The first part focuses on the macroscopic properties of physical systems. It
begins with the descriptive study of gases and liquids, and proceeds to the study
of thermodynamics, which is a comprehensive macroscopic theory of the behavior
of material systems. The second part focuses on dynamics, including gas kinetic
theory, transport processes, and chemical reaction kinetics. The third part
presents quantum mechanics and spectroscopy. The fourth part presents the relationship
between molecular and macroscopic properties of systems through the study of
statistical mechanics. This theory is applied to the structure of condensed phases.
The book is designed so that the first three parts can be studied in any order,
while the fourth part is designed to be a capstone in which the other parts are
integrated into a cohesive whole.

Answers to all of the numerical exercises and
to the odd-numbered numerical problems are placed in Appendix K. A solutions
manual, with complete solutions to all exercises and all odd numbered problems,
is available from the publisher. An instructor’s manual with solutions to the
even-numbered problems is available on-line to instructors. The instructor can
choose whether to allow students to have access to the solutions manual, but
can assign even-numbered problems when he or she wants the students to work
problems without access to solutions.

In addition to the standard tables of integrals and numerical values of
various properties, the book contains several appendices that expand on
discussions in the body of the text, such as more detailed discussions of
perturbation theory, group theory, and several mathematical topics. Each
chapter begins with a statement of the principal facts and ideas that are
presented in the chapter. There is a summary at the end of each chapter to
assist in synthesizing the material of each chapter into a coherent whole.
There are also marginal notes throughout the chapters that present biographical
information and some comments. Each chapter contains examples that illustrate
various kinds of calculations, as well as exercises placed within the chapter.
Both these exercises and the problems at the end of each section are designed
to provide practice in applying techniques and insights obtained through study
of the chapter.
