Book Description

26 Jun 2014 1482208679 978-1482208672 95

Proudly serving the scientific community for over a century, this 95th edition of the CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics is an update of a classic reference, mirroring the growth and direction of science. This venerable work continues to be the most accessed and respected scientific reference in the world. An authoritative resource consisting of tables of data and current international recommendations on nomenclature, symbols, and units, its usefulness spans not only the physical sciences but also related areas of biology, geology, and environmental science.

The 95th Edition of the Handbook includes 22 new tables and major updates and expansions. A new series highlighting the achievements of some of the major historical figures in chemistry and physics was initiated with the 94th edition. This series is continued with this edition, which is focused on Galileo Galilei, James Clerk Maxwell, Marie Sklodowska Curie, and Linus Carl Pauling. This series, which provides biographical information, a list of major achievements, and notable quotations attributed to each of the renowned chemists and physicists, will be continued in succeeding editions. Each edition will feature two chemists and two physicists.

Available in traditional print format, as an eBook, and online, this reference puts physical property data and mathematical formulas used in labs and classrooms every day within easy reach.

Product Description

Review

"This newest edition includes most recent CODATA fundamental physical constants published in 2010; IUPAC atomic weight; and the records of mean global temperature and atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration through the end of 2012. Publisher of the first handbook was a family-owned company. In 1987, it was acquired by Times Mirror Co. Subsequent owners. This edition of Handbook of Chemistry and Physics serves the scientific community as a prime source of reliable information."
