General Chemistry for Engineersexplores the key areas of chemistry needed for engineers. This book develops material from the basics to more advanced areas in a systematic fashion. As the material is presented, case studies relevant to engineering are included that demonstrate the strong link between chemistry and the various areas of engineering.

  • Serves as a unique chemistry reference source for professional engineers
  • Provides the chemistry principles required by various engineering disciplines
  • Begins with an 'atoms first' approach, building from the simple to the more complex chemical concepts
  • Includes engineering case studies connecting chemical principles to solving actual engineering problems
  • Links chemistry to contemporary issues related to the interface between chemistry and engineering practices
