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!
- Tracks a typical chemistry course, giving you step-by-step lessons you can easily grasp
- Packed with basic chemistry principles and time-saving tips from chemistry professors
- Real-world examples provide everyday context for complicated topics
This book includes over 300 illustrations to help you visualize what is necessary to understand chemistry at it’s core. While Chemistry is a huge topic, it’s not necessary to spend years studying it unless it’s your major in college. For most of us, we need a clear grasp on the subject to progress through school.
You will surely not be a chemistry newbie after reading this. You will learn that chemistry is about matter. You can break matter down a great deal—all the way down to molecules, atoms, and subatomic particles. The smaller the matter, the more fascinating it gets.
