The First Law Answers to discussion questions It is produced from the application of a force through a distance. The technical definition is based on the realization that both force and displacement are vector quantities and it is the component of the force acting in the direction of the displacement that is used in the calculation of the amount of work, that is, work is the scalar product of the two vectors. The negative sign is inserted to conform to the standard thermodynamic convention. Heat is associated with a non-adiabatic process and is defined as the difference between the adiabatic work and the non-adiabatic work associated with the same change in state of the system. This is the formal and best definition of heat and is based on the definition of work.

The new author team has introduced many innovations. There are new or rewritten chapters on the solid state, on molecular interactions, macromolecules, and electron transfer.
Almost every chapter has at least one Box showing the relevance of the material to modern chemistry. All the chapters now conclude with a check list which includes definitions and key equations. The authors have paid special attention to the presentation of mathematical derivations and to the physical interpretation of equations.
They have also ensured that the text is highly modular, so that it can be used in different sequences, either atoms first or thermodynamics first. The art program has been redrawn and extended, new Discussion questions have been added, and the Further Information sections have been recast to provide the necessary background in mathematics and physics.
The text is fully geared to the web, with full media support. Web site featuring Living Graphs about Dynamic, interactive graphs that allow experimentation and hands-on learning. Web links to sources of data and other information, as referred to in the book. DT Margin notes provide help with mathematics just where it is needed.
DT Boxes added to every chapter to cover biological applications, environmental, materials science and chemical engineering. Each box has two problems, and suggestions for further reading. DT Microprojects used to be separate sections at end of every Part. DT More help with the mathematical development of derivations: marginal notes are provided, many derivations now include more steps justifications , the section on mathematical techniques in Further Information sections has been rewritten, as has the Further Information section on concepts of physics.
DT Fully integrated media support. DT The chapters are modular so that they may be read in different orders for different courses. Road Maps are provided that suggest different routes through the text for the following types of course organizations: a thermodynamics first, b atoms first quantum mechanics first.
DT There is a separate section in of end-of-chapter exercises specifically for applications. Some examples, by section of the book: PART 1: Illustrations of partial derivatives added Added Boxes, more practical and more biological applications PART 2: Chapter 14 includes computational chemistry Enhancements to quantum mechanics coverage: addition of materials science in Chapters 22 and 23 More modern spectroscopy, more computational chemistry Chapter new chapter on molecular interactions Chapter 22 on macromolecules emphasizes polymers and biological polymers PART 3: Organized to make selective use easier made more modular Chapter more modern treatment of electron transfer theory in solutions, biological systems, and solid state For a complete list of changes to the book since the last edition, see the web site at www.
