Description:

In this second edition of Physical Chemistry for the Biological Sciences, some additions to the successful first edition have been made to be more of use to a wider audience. The use of multivariable calculus was intentionally avoided in the first edition to make thermodynamics accessible to individuals without specific mathematics background. A new chapter will introduce multivariable calculus and reformulates thermodynamics using this treatment. Students can skip over this material if it is not of interest.  This chapter will introduce the Maxwell relationships and formulate equilibria in terms of the chemical potential.  Activity coefficients would also be discussed more extensively. The second topic that needs amplification is theory.  Theory is now used extensively in biology so that this addition should be welcome.  The introductory chapter on quantum mechanics will be expanded, and a new chapter dealing with molecules will be presented. Two new chapters on statistical mechanics will be added, one introductory, the other dealing with applications including molecular dynamics.
