These problems will not be collected and graded. However, you should do them since they will help
you to understand the material and prepare for your exams. Numerical answers to the part (a) Exercises
are available on the Book Companion Site (www.whfreeman.com/pchem10e), and their full solutions can
be found in the Student Solutions Manual. The numerical answers to the odd-numbered Problems are
available on the Book Companion Site, and their full solutions can be found in the Student Solutions
