         Example 4.5                      10–3 with 3.43 × 10–3. This error is carried through the rest
                                          of the example. The next equation should be: 0.04α2 + 6.86
                                          × 10–3α – 6.86 × 10–3 = 0, giving the final answer α = 0.337.

                                        solution of potassium chloride.”
p. 371   2 line below Equation 9.40     The sentence should read: “In the general case of a
p. 374   Figure 9.4                     The label on the y-axis of the first graph should be:

                                        “…the reciprocals of the temperatures.”
p. 395   5 lines above last reaction    The sentence should read: “…logarithm of the rate constant

p. 403   Last 4 lines of Example 9.5   The slope is –∆‡V°/RT. This sign error is carried through the
                                       rest of the calculation, so all the rest of the answers should
                                       be negative.
