Atomic Theory

Information and resources on the theory of the atoms.

An atom is the smallest particle of a chemical element, which enter into chemical compounds and can form molecules with other atoms. With chemical methods an atom is not divisible into smaller units.

The chemistry is concerned basically with the electrons including the chemical bond formed by the electrons and their orbitals. Theoretical and quantum mechanical considerations are the subject of quantum chemistry and theoretical chemistry.

General Chemistry: The Essential Concepts

The seventh edition of General Chemistry continues the tradition of presenting only the material that is essential for a one-year general chemistry course. It strikes 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. Although the seventh edition incorporates many impressive features, such as conceptual idea review, animations correlated to the text, and hand-sketched worked examples, General Chemistry is still 200 to 300 pages shorter and much less expensive than other two-semester textbooks. Dr. Chang and Dr. Goldsby’ concise-but-thorough approach will appeal to efficiency-minded instructors and value-conscious students.
