Download this PDF Book: Exploring Chemical Analysis 5th Edition by Daniel C. Harris 

Exploring Chemical Analysis provides an ideal one-term introduction to analytical chemistry for students whose primary interests generally lie outside of chemistry. 

Combining coverage of all major analytical topics with effective problem-solving methods, it teaches students how to understand analytical results and how to use quantitative manipulations, preparing them for the problems they will encounter in fields from biology to chemistry to geology.

This book is intended to provide a short, interesting, elementary introduction to analytical chemistry for students of chemistry and students whose primary interests might lie outside of chemistry. 

I selected topics that I think should be covered in a single exposure to analytical chemistry and tried to refrain from going into more depth than necessary.

The F test for comparison of variance is introduced early in the chapter on statistics and applied to the t test for comparison of means. The meaning of statistical hypothesis testing is explained with an example from epidemiology. 

Two cases of standard addition with variable volume or constant volume are distinguished more clearly. Propagation of uncertainty for pH is described. A better diagram showing the working of an electronic balance and a photograph of the optical train of an ultraviolet-visible spectrophotometer are included.

The two most important ways to master this course are to work problems and to gain experience in the laboratory. Worked Examples are a principal pedagogic tool designed to teach problem solving and to illustrate how to apply what you have just read. 

At the end of each worked example is a similar Test Yourself question and answer.

Essential vocabulary in the text is highlighted in bold and listed in Important Terms at the end of each chapter. Other unfamiliar terms are usually italicized. The Glossary at the end of the book defines all bold terms and many italicized terms. 

Key Equations are highlighted and collected at the end of the chapter. Appendixes contain tables of chemical information and a discussion of balancing redox equations. The inside covers contain your trusty periodic table, physical constants, and other useful information.

About the author:

Daniel C. Harris was born in Brooklyn, NY in 1948. He earned degrees in Chemistry from MIT in 1968 and Caltech 1973 and was a postdoc at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York. 

After teaching at the University of California at Davis from 1975-1980 and at Franklin and Marshall College from 1980-1983, he moved to the Naval Air Systems Command at China Lake, California, where he is now a Senior Scientist and Esteemed Fellow.

While teaching analytical chemistry at Davis, he wrote his lectures in bound form for his students. This volume caught the attention of publishers' representatives wandering through the college bookstore. The first edition of Quantitative Chemical Analysis was published in 1982. 

The first edition of Exploring Chemical Analysis came out in 1996. Both have undergone regular revision. Dan is also co-author of Symmetry and Spectroscopy published in 1978 by Oxford University Press and now available from Dover Press. 

His book Materials for Infrared Windows and Domes was published by SPIE press in 1999. Dan and his wife Sally were married in 1970. They have two children and four grandchildren. Sally's work on every edition of the books is essential to their quality and accuracy.
