Problem-solving is one of the most challenging aspects students encounter in general chemistry courses, leading to frustration and failure. Consequently, many students become less motivated to take additional chemistry courses after the first year.

This book tackles this issue head on and provides innovative, intuitive, and systematic strategies to tackle any type of calculations encountered in chemistry. The material begins with the basic theories, equations, and concepts of the underlying chemistry, followed by worked examples with carefully

explained step-by-step solutions to showcase the ways in which the problems can be presented.

The second edition contains additional problems at the end of each chapter with varying degrees of difficulty, and many of the original examples have been revised.

This is the second edition of Chemistry in Quantitative Language. I am pleased that the first edition, published in 2009, was so well received by both instructors and students. 

However, as is typical with most books in their first edition, the users graciously provided several constructive suggestions to make the book more useful for the intended audience. 

In addition, on my part, a decade later I find the need to add a few topics and concepts that were left out of the first edition, as well as the need to reorganize the chapters and update the worked examples and end-of-chapter problems to make the book more useful.

All of these have armed me with the motivation and insights necessary to prepare this second edition. Formulating and solving quantitative chemistry problems remains a concern for many students. This edition shares the same objective of making problem-solving in chemistry more pleasurable and exciting, so students can hopefully face their examinations with ease and pass with flying colors.

Throughout the book I have adhered to the philosophy behind the first edition, which was to introduce the concepts of the underlying chemistry followed by a series of worked example to show students how the calculations are done and to hopefully enable them to appreciate what is involved. 

At the end of each chapter are a series of problems that range from very simple to those requiring more time and energy. Each problem in the book has been solved and checked independently by Ted La Page. Answers for all the problems are in the Solutions to Problems chapter at the end of the book.
