In class, I used the animation in chapter 4- Approach equilibrium (page 4.28 of my Physical Chemistry book), to show that the ratio of the forward and reverse rate constants is equal to the equilibrium constant. By plotting the concentrations against time, eventually there is no noticeable change and then the ratio of the concentrations is equal to equilibrium constant.
Includes multimedia that opens on relevant pages and allows the student to visualize many of the concepts by varying parameters and plotting different graphs. Things students often have difficulty with, such as isothermal, isobaric, isochoric and adiabatic process, are clearly visualized.
Physical Chemistry textbook
by Laidler, Meiser, Sanctuary
This popular Physical Chemistry text book is now available in electronic format. We have preserved much of the material of the former hard copy editions, making changes to improve understanding of the concepts in addition to including some of the recent discoveries in physical chemistry. Many chapters have new sections and the coverage of several chapters has been greatly expanded.
