The sixth edition of General Chemistry continues the tradition of presenting a balance between theory and application by incorporating real-world examples helping students visualize the three dimensional atomic and molecular structures that are the basis of chemical activity and developing problem solving and critical thinking skills. Salient features New Review of Concepts. A quick review question or set of questions (sometimes with a visual) to test student understanding of the concept just presented. Macro to Micro Understanding. Macroscopic to microscopic art pieces allow students to see ""zoom in"" on real life examples of chemical reactions. Accurate Chemical Models. New Molecular Images which can be found in the text's line art, figures of molecular reactions and underlining an equation, were created using the Spartan software.
