(Chapters 1 – 9) p. 30 5 lines from bottom The equation should begin: x = rsinθ cosϕ p. 39 Equation 1.110 3Vc2 The second part of the first term should be: 2 Vm p. 55 1st integral on page U2 The limits should be switched: ∫ U1 dU p. 56 Sentence before Equation 2.7 Should read: “…we must apply a force F to the piston,…” p. 85 Equation 2.125 2 V2 n a The integral should read: ∫ V1 V 2 p. 144 Problem 3.17 The units for the ∆vapH° values in parts a. and b. should be kJ mol–1. p. 161 3 lines below Equation 4.47 The sentence should begin: “The symbol γ (gamma) is used for an activity coefficient…” p. 166 Last three equations in In the first equation for the 20 L calculation, replace 3.473 × 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. p. 169 4th line above Equation 4.74 The line should begin with –∆H/R. p. 189 Example 5.3, 4 lines below 1st The volumes are for liquid and solid: Vm(l) – Vm(s) equation p. 202 5 lines from bottom The sentence should read: “All the other thermodynamic relations for systems of…” rd p. 212 3 line above Equation 5.119 The equation at the end of the line should read n1 = W1/M1. p. 232 3rd equation in Example 6.3 The numerator should read: 114.5 Torr × 0.500 × 153.823 g mol–1 p. 296 Last sentence before “Born’s The sentence should read: “…ions bring about Model” electrostriction of the solvent played an important…” p. 298 4th line of 3rd paragraph The figure referred to is Figure 7.14 p. 302 Equation 7.108 The second version should read: v+ z + = v− z − 2 2 2 2 p. 303 6th line The text should read: “…fall linearly with I ,…” th p. 304 6 line The page reference is p. 314. p. 306 Equation 7.126 The term after the = sign should be: log10 K s° p. 323 3rd line of last paragraph The text should state that the calomel electrode is: “either in a 0.1 m solution of hydrochloric acid or in a saturated solution of potassium chloride.” nd p. 371 2 line below Equation 9.40 The sentence should read: “In the general case of a reaction…” p. 374 Figure 9.4 The label on the y-axis of the first graph should be: xe x ln e a0 xe − x p. 383 Example 9.2 In the third and fourth lines of the Solution, it should refer to “…the reciprocals of the temperatures.” p. 395 5 lines above last reaction The sentence should read: “…logarithm of the rate constant against the reciprocal…, will show curvature, the rate constants at the lower temperatures being abnormally high…” Last updated by R.A.Peebles: 11/14/2005 5:33:42 PM 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. p. 407 Figure 9.25 The bold heading between parts a. and b. is referring to the text. The figure below it (9.25b) is for an attractive surface.
