Exploring the world of chemistry: from ancient metals to high-speed computers
Chemistry is an amazing branch of science that affects us every day, yet few people realize it, or even give it much thought.

Find out why pure gold is not used for jewelry or coins. Join Humphry Davy as he made many chemical discoveries, and learn how they shortened his life. See how people in the 1870s could jump over the top of the Washington Monument.Exploring the World of Chemistry brings science to life and is a wonderful learning tool with many illustrations, biographical information, chapter tests, and an index for easy referencing.
