General Chemistry: Principles, Patterns, and Applications – Open Textbook Library

The text has more than adequate clarity, however some of the example calculations would benefit from additional formatting. The textbook does cover all the major topics typical of a first year General Chemistry course, as well as some of the more popular additional topics that are sometimes covered if there is sufficient time.


Nuclear Chemistry Aevrill ComiXology Thousands of Digital Comics. The compound has a vapor pressure of 1. Navigation of the text was easy using my PC and I did not come across any issues of loading of images.

Energy Changes in Chemical Reactions Chapter 6: The online version is formatted correctly, so that mathematical equations and calculations line up appropriately and all symbols, superscripts, etc. An example is determining the empirical formula of Penicillin; the calculations are written in a linear fashion such that the average general chemistry student would be lost trying to follow the example given.

The textbook should be reliably modular, although the errors make it difficult to use in any manner. The text contains numerous interesting “real world” examples of applied chemistry fireworks and their composition being one of my favorite which will act as effective “hooks” to capture student interest. Topics relevant to materials science are also introduced to meet the more specific needs of engineering students.

If you ever decide to write a new version or if you are considering adopting this book for your own classesit would be nice to have some post information included; also, PLEASE include a table of contents in the PDF version of the textbook!!!

This approach emphasizes the distinctions between ionic and covalent bonding, thus enhancing the students’ chance of success in the organic chemistry course that traditionally follows general chemistry. Patricja versus Covalent Bonding Chapter 9: The book covers the essentials of a first year chemistry course, but it lacks depth and “readability”.

Again, there is a difference between the online version and the pdf one.
