Oxygen: A Four Billion Year History (Science Essentials)

By Donald E. Canfield

The air we breathe is twenty-one percentage oxygen, an quantity larger than on the other identified international. whereas we could take our air without any consideration, Earth used to be no longer consistently an oxygenated planet. How did it develop into this fashion? Donald Canfield--one of the world's best experts on geochemistry, earth background, and the early oceans--covers this giant heritage, emphasizing its courting to the evolution of existence and the evolving chemistry of the Earth. Canfield publications readers throughout the numerous traces of clinical proof, considers a few of the unsuitable turns and lifeless ends alongside the best way, and highlights the scientists and researchers who've made key discoveries within the box. displaying how Earth's surroundings built through the years, Oxygen takes readers on a awesome trip in the course of the background of the oxygenation of our planet.

General Chemistry: The Essential Concepts

By Raymond Chang

The 6th version of General Chemistry maintains the culture of offering purely the cloth that's crucial for a one-year normal chemistry direction. It moves a stability among concept and alertness through incorporating real-world examples; assisting scholars visualize the 3-dimensional atomic and molecular constructions which are the root of chemical task; and constructing problem-solving and significant pondering talents. even if the 6th version accommodates many awesome positive factors, reminiscent of macro to micro paintings, animations correlated to the textual content, and hand-sketched labored examples, General Chemistry remains to be two hundred to three hundred pages shorter and lots more and plenty more cost-effective than different two-semester textbooks. Dr. Chang’s concise-but-thorough procedure will attract efficiency-minded teachers and value-conscious scholars.
