Chemistry: A Molecular Approach, 2nd Edition

By Nivaldo J. Tro

Published by Pearson

Published Date: Jan 5, 2010


This innovative text explains difficult concepts in a relevant, student-oriented manner.  Chemistry is presented visually through multi-level images—macroscopic, molecular and symbolic representations—helping you see the connections among the formulas (symbolic), the world around you (macroscopic), and the atoms and molecules that make up the world (molecular). Among other revisions, the Second Edition offers a crisp new design, adds more challenging problems, and significantly revises coverage of electrochemistry.
