Inorganic Chemistry : Part 2

This part focuses on what we know as the core Inorganic Chemistry – The s-block, p-block, d-block and f-block elements and Hydrogen

The inorganic chemistry topics that we considered in Part 1 were fun, right? Well, the chapters we are going to discuss here are the ones that will make you cringe and leave inorganic chemistry. Well, you just can’t leave it though. Why? Well, firstly because these chapters have no tricky questions, and secondly, they need very little effort.

R C Mukerjee : The Godbook for Physical Chemistry

So, one day, Aakash comes to me and says,”I want to strengthen physical chemistry…give me a problem sheet having problems related to the important topics.” I replied, “There is an amazing¬† collection of problems in R C Mukerjee. Practice it and tell me if you have any doubt”

 

From then on, Aakash made a habit of finishing RCM for every chapter. Although¬†the book doesn’t contain a collection of challenging problems, he found them helpful for providing a good start in a chapter.¬†I think the above paragraph was enough to make you understand that RCM is useful.
