I t builds on a knowledge of elementary thermodynamics, informs the read er of the origin of electrode potentials, and shows how these are used to deduce a wealth of chemically important information such as equili brium constants, free energy, enthalpy and entropy changes of chemical reactions, activity coefficients, and the selective sensing of ions. The emphasis throughout is on understanding the foundations of this di scipline and how it may be used to study problems of chemical interest . The authors have minimized the mathematical aspects of the subject w ithout any sacrifices in clarity.
