Chemistry can be a challenging topic, and this book aims to provide many features to help you master the material. It takes advantage of the ebook format to give you dynamically worked examples and video clip explanations along with the text, all embedded in a story arc to help engage your whole brain.
The focus of this book is mass spectrometry. Produced during a summer research fellowship at the University of California for the IISME(Industry Initiatives for Science and Math Education) organization. First we'll look at how a mass spectrometer works, next well see how mass spectrometry applies to measuring the isotopic composition of elements. Finally we'll see how mass spectrometry applies to molecular identification.
