The book has been written to provide assistance to the undergraduate students of various Universities. This book deals with the basic properties of liquids like viscosity and surface tension in a manner to make it easily understandable along with the application of these.

Studies on kinetics with emphasis on first order and second order kinetics has been covered explicitly. Thermochemistry is an important area which has been covered giving experimental details and their calculations. These include heat capacity, heat of neutralisation, heat of ionisation, heat of solution, heat of hydration to mention a few. The theory of the experiment has been explained to provide detailed understanding of the subject.

Experiments dealing with adsorption properties, colloids and molar mass measurement have described in detail. Another area which has been covered are experiments related to phase rule, nernst distribution law, critical solution temperature and determination of transition temperature. Various techniques which are in use include the application of conductivity meter, potentiometer, pH meter, colorimeter, polarimeter and refractometer. Description of techniques and the instrumental details and steps involved in their use have been well covered under physical chemistry.

The book is very comprehensive covering all aspects from calculations for preparation of reagents to observations and writing of results. “Practicals made easy” is the slogan of the book. Efforts have been put in to simplify each step to help in solving difficulties generally faced during experimentation. This would thus provide in depth understanding to the students with the habit of scientific reasoning.
