Created by teaching chemists, OWLv2 is a powerful online learning system for chemistry with a unique Mastery Learning approach, which allows students to practice at their own pace, receive meaningful feedback and access a variety of learning resources to help them master chemistry and achieve better grades.

GENERAL CHEMISTRY is better than ever with this eleventh edition. It includes essential updates—such as modern artwork, higher integration with OWLv2, revised end-of-chapter questions, added Capstone Problems, narrative revisions, and more—to help you succeed in your chemistry course.

    • The essay series “A Chemist Looks At…” includes many contemporary topics, such as “The Discovery of New Elements” and “Lithium-Ion Batteries.” The essays on “Instrumental Methods” describe modern methods in chemistry, such as NMR and mass spectrometry. Both series of essays have accompanying end-of-chapter problems to help integrate the essays into the course.
    • A major feature of the text is the problem-solving program set forth in each Example Problem. The “Gaining Mastery Toolbox” lays out the critical concept involved in the problem, as well as the essential ideas required in its solution. After the problem statement, the example describes the problem strategy, followed by the solution and answer check (reminding the student of a vital step in problem-solving: reviewing the result for reasonableness). Interactive versions of examples are assignable in OWLv2.
    • In each chapter, “A Checklist for Review” is laid out to provide a variety of review help to students with different ways of learning. This checklist includes a summary of facts and concepts given in the chapter, a list of learning objectives and important terms, and a list of key equations described in the text.
    • A wide variety of end-of-chapter problem types are available to meet the demands of today’s varied students. This includes “Conceptual Problems” to help the student understand the basic concepts. In addition to a wealth of basic problem sets, there are also “Strategy Problems” to challenge students and “Capstone Problems” that combine skills from earlier chapters.
    • Each of the Example Problems have been formatted to provide a clearer path for student learning and the parallel OWLv2 Interactive Examples have been reimagined to better match the problem-solving approach and tools in the book.
    • New Capstone Problems have been added to a number of chapters.
    • New Capstone Problems have been added to a number of chapters.
    • Throughout the text, the authors adopted IUPAC periodic table conventions.
    • Essays have been added, updated, and revised to reflect current understanding of a variety of relevant topics. Several “A Chemist Looks At” essays, including “Carbon Dioxide Gas and the Greenhouse Effect,” “Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR),” “Acid Rain,” “Limestone Caves,” and “Superconductivity”, were updated. New essays on “The Discovery of New Elements” and “Lithium-Ion Batteries” were added.
    • The discussion of electrostatic potential maps and the application of formal charge were improved.
    • New material was added explaining the modern view of bonding in central atoms having more than eight valence electrons.

    Mastering a skill takes practice, but a good coach makes that practice meaningful. Unlike other online homework systems that just drill, OWLv2’s Mastery Learning activities allow students to work at their own pace until they understand each concept and skill. Each time a student tries a problem, OWLv2 changes the chemicals, values, and sometimes even the wording of the question to ensure students are learning the concepts and not cheating the system. With detailed, instant feedback, multiple attempts and interactive learning resources, students get the help they need without fear of losing points. Now with improved student and instructor tools and greater functionality, OWLv2 is more robust than ever. Learning chemistry takes a lot of practice, but mastering it takes OWLv2.

    Lab Manual Experiments in General Chemistry

    Each experiment in this manual was selected to match topics in the textbook and includes an introduction, a procedure, a page of pre-lab exercises about the concepts the lab illustrates, and a report form. Some have a scenario that places the experiment in a real-world context and there are experiments designed for inquiry learning with limited guidance. For this edition, minor updates have been made to the lab manual to address some safety concerns. A new reminder was added to the safety section of the preface reminding readers to consult manufacturer’s data sheets. Experiment 5A was removed completely due to the use of mercury. Experiment 5B includes a new safety reminder in the experiment procedures cautioning students to use no more than one gram of potassium chlorate. Experiment 22A has been removed completely due to concern about the skin contact hazards.
