Description

Now in its fifth edition, Housecroft & Sharpe's Inorganic Chemistry is a well-respected and leading international textbook. This Solutions Manual accompanies the main text and provides model answers to the end-of-chapter problems, linking to relevant sections and figures in the main text as appropriate.

 

Solutions in this manual are fully worked, making them of maximum benefit to students during in-course assessment and end-of-course examination problems. Using the Solutions Manual will reinforce learning and develop subject knowledge and skills. The solutions are referenced into the literature and diagrams are simplified to coach students in how to achieve a similar style in their own work.

Features

Includes answers to all the end of chapter problems from main textbook (Housecroft, Inorganic Chemistry: ISBN 9781292134147 )

Problems are organised into three categories and include the following kinds of questions:

 

 1) questions testing overall understanding of the chapters

 2) questions which require students to pull together a number of concepts from the chapter to answer each problem and

 3) problems set within a real life context
