The Most Interesting Numbers in Chemistry

Mathematics is the language of science, and numbers are at the heart of all chemical sciences—understand the numbers, and you’ll have a better understanding of the science. Chemistry in 100 Numbers explores the most important and interesting numbers in chemistry, starting very low (-92.4, which is the enthalpy of the Haber process measured in kilojoules per mole) and working in numerical order up to very, very large (6.0221367 × 1023, which is Avogadro’s constant, defined as the number of particles in exactly 12 grams of carbon-12).

Whether you read it from cover to cover, dip in and out at random, or decide to read one number a day, you’ll discover a wide range of facts, figures, and formulas, presented in a way that is uniquely easy to grasp. From the mass of an electron to the density of the Earth’s atmosphere, Chemistry in 100 Numbers is an insightful and accessible guide that will enlighten, inform, and entertain readers of all levels.
