Calculations in Chemistry is intended to help students overcome the challenges associated with solving the numerical problems in chemistry. Chemistry is a numerical science which cannot be fully appreciated without adequate numerical skills. In fact, the lack of problem-solving skills has been recognised as one of the major reasons for the poor performance recorded in the subject over the years. Budgetary and size constraints often translate to lack of space for solving enough sample problems in core textbooks and most problems are presented in a difficult manner that douses enthusiasm for learning. Thus, a book of this nature, containing numerous solved problems drawn from all aspects of chemistry, is necessary to complement the core texts if students are to attain the required level of mastery in the subject. Meant specifically for students studying chemistry at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, this book presents the calculations in chemistry in a simple, logical and down-to-earth manner that will impart students with the required numerical skills for excelling in chemistry.
