|F1403 - General Chemistry
All homework problems are from the class textbook (Chemistry-Science of Change by Oxtoby, Freeman and Block, 4th edition) unless otherwise noted. Homework is not graded. You should not turn in your homework. It is highly recommended that you complete the homework assignemnts on your own in order to learn the material. The solutions manual to the text contains answers to odd numbered problems. Even numbered problems in the book are usually preceded by a similar problem. If you have difficulty with an even problem, try the preceding odd problem with the aid of the solution from the student solutions manual. The posted solutions below are PDF files of the student's solutions manual. If any even numbered problems are assigned, a separate solutions posting will be under "even".
The class week refers to the week of class during which the chapters for a given homework assignment were covered in lecture. The suggested due date for the problems would be for the recitation following that week's lecture. For example, chapters 2 and 3 were covered during the second week of class, and the problems for these chapters will be discussed during the recitation during the 3rd week (Wed. 9-18-02). If you have questions or problems with the homework, come to recitation or see the instructor or the TA for help.
*Only the solutions to the first 3 chapters are made available by the publisher in electronic format. The solutions for subsequent chapters are available in the student solutions manual. If you have not bought a copy, the chemistry library (4th floor of Chandler) has 4 copies on reserve of "Student Solutions Manual for Oxtoby, Freeman and Block's Chemistry, Science of Change, 4th ed." by Donald Wink.
