ISBN-13: 9781439047910

More suitable with a outstanding variety of new difficulties and purposes, the second one variation of CHEMISTRY FOR ENGINEERING scholars presents a concise, thorough, and proper creation to chemistry that prepares scholars for additional research in any engineering box. up to date with much more questions and functions in particular aimed at engineering scholars, the publication emphasizes the relationship among molecular houses and observable actual houses and the connections among chemistry and different topics studied by means of engineering scholars, corresponding to arithmetic and physics. This re-creation is now totally supported via OWL, the main widely-used on-line studying method for chemistry.

Example text

10 Chapter 1 Introduction to Chemistry Inductive reasoning begins with a series of specific observations and attempts to generalize to a larger, more universal conclusion. We have asserted that all gases expand to occupy the full volumes of their containers. This universal conclusion was first drawn by inductive reasoning based on observations of many different gases under many different conditions. Because we have not observed every possible gas in every possible container under every possible set of conditions, it could be argued that some counterexample could be found eventually.

3 provides a very simple but useful illustration. 3. 3 ❚ Particulate level views of the solid, liquid, and gas phases of matter. In a solid, the molecules maintain a regular ordered structure, so a sample maintains its size and shape. In a liquid, the molecules remain close to one another, but the ordered array breaks down. At the macroscopic level, this allows the liquid to flow and take on the shape of its container. In the gas phase, the molecules are very widely separated, and move independently of one another.

When a solid is placed in But these do not exist at ordinary a container, it retains its own shape rather than assuming that of the container. Even a temperatures. powdered solid demonstrates this trait because the individual particles still retain their shape, even though the collection of them may take on the shape of the container. Liquids can be distinguished from solids macroscopically because unlike solids, liquids adapt to the shape of the container in which they are held. They may not fill the entire volume, but the portion they do occupy has its shape defined by the container.
