Chemistry Books

Chemistry provides the chance to implement creativity alongside critical and analytical thinking. Interactions between substances might be governed by physical laws, but they are also so varied that they provide the opportunity to create new substances and processes that the world has never seen before. Chemists are constantly creating new things and helping advance technology and society; so what are you waiting for? Pick up a book and join them.

A Science for Everyone

Chemistry is an interesting science that uses a great deal of math and physics, but don’t let that scare you. Mastering chemistry just takes practice, and it gives you a wide range of skills and opens doors to many careers. Direct Knowledge can help you along the way with books tailored to making the most troublesome subjects a breeze.

You’ll study the makeup and structure of atoms and molecules, learning how they give certain properties to the matter they create. We have lab manuals and guides to help you through experiments; from the classics to making your own, you can count on doing many in chemistry. But first, you’ll need a base set of skills for performing and analyzing them. Even the most simple calculations using data and results from the experiments use all kinds of rules.

For example, chemists just starting off need to learn to use significant figures at all times. Metric units are also the norm, so Americans might have to makes some adjustments. But don’t worry; you’ll eventually know most of the formulas for conversions and values for common constants by heart. All you need is a lot of practice, which can be found in books of detailed explanations with practice questions.

Because much of what’s in chemistry is not visible to the naked eye, pictures are a huge help. You’ll learn to make and understand diagrams, and they’ll become part of your study. Books at all levels, even the most advanced, will contain diagrams to help you understand what’s happening in that tiny world.

Moving Up in the Field

After mastering the basics, books can give you an up-close look at a range of chemistry subjects. You could start off with the periodic table, which might count as a basic itself. The table is a vital tool for understanding atomic and molecular structure of the many elements that apply to all other areas.

Then, chemical bonding is a subject that helps you understand how the elements interact. It can lead to more complicated areas like solutions and mixtures, acids and bases, and stoichiometry. Some really high-level material covers organic chemistry, biochemistry, electrochemistry, and thermochemistry.

Books in these topics are perfect for college students trying to get through classes and exams, or even for researchers and professionals looking to read up on the newest advancements. Whatever stage you’re in, you’ll find something to take you to the next level.
