Physical chemistry has an important role in making chemistry an exact science. It is therefore quite necessary to give emphasis to his branch in the teaching of Chemistry. It can be said without exaggeration that Physical Chemistry is best understood when the technique to solve problems is understood. This book is an attempt made by the authors to help students in understanding the technique of solving problem. If is rather unfortunate that many students consider Physical Chemistry a difficult subject because of the need to solve problems. If this misconception is removed, from the minds of students, one of the aims of the book would be fulfilled.
It gives a sense of satisfaction to the author to bring out this twenty-third edition of the book written as per the revised syllabus for the students of S.Y.J.C. Science studying in Maharashtra in Junior college. The book has been written according to the new syllabus Secondary Eduction, Pune, which is in force from June 2012.
