Through a vibrant four-color design, Chemistry for Engineers presents chemistry concepts most relevant to engineers and demonstrates them within an applied context. A thorough problem-solving and conceptually driven approach helps engineering students develop the quantitative and qualitative skills necessary to succeed in the course and in their fields. Features that emphasize skills, concepts, and engineering applications appear throughout each chapter, providing students with multiple opportunities to hone their understanding of chapter topics. For those students who need it, an introductory chapter, called "Fundamentals," provides a quick review of basic chemistry and math concepts. A complete technology package accompanies the text and helps make teaching and learning chemistry more dynamic. Resources include the HM Testing program powered by Diploma, the HM ClassPresent CD with scaleable videos and animations, and the Online Study Center for students with quizzes and tutorials. Skill Development Objectives at the beginning of the chapter outline key skills students should master by the end of the chapter. Worked Examples, titled for easy reference, address specific section topics and model a step-by-step approach to problem solving. Each example includes Plan and Implementation sections followed by a reference to related end-of-chapter exercises. Concept Questions challenge students to further consider the ideas underlying the chemistry in a section and act either as a review of the material just learned or as a prompt to build on a concept and apply it to a particular situation. Apply It interactive exercises require students to apply concepts to real-life situations. One activity, for example, asks students to bend copper and steel wire to get a tangible sense of their properties. The end-of-chapter material includes the Checklist for Review with key terms and key equations, the Chapter Summary, the Key Idea in the chapter, Concepts You Should Understand, Operational Skills, Review Exercises, Conceptual Exercises, engineering-related Applied Exercises, and Integrative Exercises. The appendix presents a series of data tables, a list of metal ions, and a list of acids for reference throughout the course.
