A problem-solving book for the beginner or for anyone wishing to review their chemical problem-solving skills. The material is presented at two levels (competency and proficiency) to meet the varying needs and backgrounds of users. The emphasis is on stoichiometry and equilibria as encountered in applied chemistry fields such as agriculture, engineering, as well as the medical and environmental sciences. Practice problems are provided in four areas: agriculture and marine sciences, biological and medical sciences, industrial chemistry and environmental sciences.
