Chemistry For Dummies
Chemistry For Dummies, 2nd Edition (9781118007303) is now being published as Chemistry For Dummies, 2nd Edition (9781119293460). While this version features an older Dummies cover and design, the content is the same as the new release and should not be considered a different product.
We're all natural born chemists. Every time we cook, clean, take a shower, drive a car, use a solvent (such as nail polish remover), or perform any of the countless everyday activities that involve complex chemical reactions we're doing chemistry! So why do so many of us desperately resist learning chemistry when we're young?
Now there's a fun, easy way to learn basic chemistry. Whether you're studying chemistry in school and you're looking for a little help making sense of what's being taught in class, or you're just into learning new things, Chemistry For Dummies gets you rolling with all the basics of matter and energy, atoms and molecules, acids and bases, and much more!
