Preparing for Your ACS Examinations in Physical Chemistry: The Official Guide

(Commonly called the Physical Chemistry Study Guide)

ISBN 10: 0-9708042-2-9
ISBN 13: 987-0-9708042-2-8

This guide includes 126  pages of information in essentially three
categories. First, there is a brief explanation of content in physical
chemistry. Second, there are example exam items where the question and
answers are analyzed (so you can see not only why the correct answer is
correct, but also how the other incorrect answers – called distractors
– are devised for a multiple-choice item). Finally, there are practice
questions for each section.

Content includes:

  • Thermodynamics
    • Equations of State
    • Laws of Thermodynamics and State Functions
    • Mathematical Relationships in Thermodynamics
    • Chemical and Phase Equilibria
  • Dynamics
    • Kinetic Molecular Theory
    • Transport Properties
    • Phenomenological Kinetics
