This book, intended for the undergraduate students, may also be used for a first chemistry course. The emphasis is on the concepts of physical chemistry and how to obtain quantitative relations from the concepts. Representative problems are included at the end of every chapter. To reduce the bulk, the book avoids experimental details that should be covered in laboratory manuals. Some aspects, such as wave mechanical model of the atom, molecular symmetry, chemical bonding and solid state chemistry that are inadequately covered by most text books at this level, are discussed in detail to give flavour of modern chemistry.
