Evolving Nature of Objectivity in the History of Science and its Implications for Science Education

This book explores the evolving nature of objectivity in the history of science and its implications for science education. It is generally considered that objectivity, certainty, truth, universality, the scientific method and the accumulation of experimental data characterize both science and science education. Such universal values associated with science may be challenged while studying controversies in their original historical context. The scientific enterprise is not characterized by objectivity or the scientific method, but rather controversies, alternative interpretations of data, ambiguity, and uncertainty. Although objectivity is not synonymous with truth or certainty, it has eclipsed other epistemic virtues and to be objective is often used as a synonym for scientific. Recent scholarship in history and philosophy of science has shown that it is not the experimental data (Baconian orgy of quantification) but rather the diversity / plurality in a scientific discipline that contributes toward understanding objectivity. History of science shows that objectivity and subjectivity can be considered as the two poles of a continuum and this dualism leads to a conflict in understanding the evolving nature of objectivity. The history of objectivity is nothing less than the history of science itself and the evolving and varying forms of objectivity does not mean that one replaced the other in a sequence but rather each form supplements the others. This book is remarkable for its insistence that the philosophy of science, and in particular that discipline’s analysis of objectivity as the supposed hallmark of the scientific method, is of direct value to teachers of science. Meticulously, yet in a most readable way, Mansoor Niaz looks at the way objectivity has been dealt with over the years in influential educational journals and in textbooks; it’s fascinating how certain perspectives fade, while basic questions show no sign of going away. There are few books that take both philosophy and education seriously – this one does! Roald Hoffmann, Cornell University, chemist, writer and Nobel Laureate in Chemistry

For this new edition, we have tried to follow this important advice by attending even more to the needs of students who are taking a serious journey through this material. We also know that most general chemistry students have career interests not in chemistry but in other areas such as biology, medicine, engineering, environmental science, and agricultural sciences. And we understand that general chemistry will be the only university or college chemistry course for some students, and thus their only opportunity to learn some practical applications of chemistry. We have designed this book for all these students. Students of this text should have already studied some chemistry. But those with no prior background and those who could use a refresher will find that the early chapters develop fundamental concepts from the most elementary ideas. Students who do plan to become professional chemists will also find opportunities in the text to pursue their own special interests. The typical student may need help identifying and applying principles and visualizing their physical significance. The pedagogical features of this text are designed to provide this help. At the same time, we hope the text serves to sharpen student skills in problem solving and critical thinking. Thus, we have tried to strike the proper balances between principles and applications, qualitative and quantitative discussions, and rigor and simplification. Throughout the text and on the Mastering Chemistry site (www.mastering chemistry.com) we provide real-world examples to enhance the discussion. Examples relevant to the biological sciences, engineering, and the environmental sciences will be found in numerous places. This should help to bring the chemistry alive for these students and help them understand its relevance to their career interests. It also, in most cases, should help them master core concepts. ORGANIZATION In this edition we retain the core organization of the ninth edition of this text, but with additional depth and breadth of coverage of material in several areas. After a brief overview of core concepts in Chapter 1, we introduce atomic theory, including the periodic table, in Chapter 2. The periodic table is an extraordinarily useful tool, and presenting it early allows us to use the periodic table in new ways throughout the early chapters of the text. In Chapter 3 we introduce chemical compounds and their stoichiometry. Organic compounds are included in this presentation. The early introduction of organic compounds allows us to use organic examples throughout the book. Chapters 4 and 5 introduce chemical reactions. We discuss gases in Chapter 6, partly because they are familiar to students (which helps them build confidence), but also because some instructors prefer to cover this material early to better integrate their lecture and lab programs. Note that Chapter 6 can easily be deferred for coverage with the other states of matter, in Chapter 12. In Chapter 8 we delve more deeply into wave mechanics, although we do so in a way that allows omission of this material at the instructor s discretion. As with previous editions, we have emphasized realworld chemistry in the final chapters that cover descriptive chemistry (Chapters 21 24), and we have tried to make this material easy to bring forward into earlier parts of the text. Moreover, many topics in these chapters can be covered selectively, without requiring the study of entire chapters. The text ends with comprehensive chapters on organic chemistry (Chapters 26 and 27) and biochemistry (Chapter 28). CHANGES TO THIS EDITION For this edition, we have strengthened the pedagogical apparatus and increased the depth of coverage in selected areas all in accordance with contemporary thoughts about how best to teach general chemistry. We have also made a number of smaller organizational changes to improve the flow of information. The following summarizes the major improvements made throughout the book. Logical approach to solving problems. All worked examples are presented consistently throughout the text by using a tripartite structure of Analyze-Solve-Assess. This presentation not only encourages students to use a logical approach in solving problems but also provides them with a way to start when they are trying to solve a problem that may seem, at first, impossibly difficult. The approach is used implicitly by those who have had plenty of practice solving problems; but for those who are just starting out, the Analyze-Solve-Assess structure will serve to remind students to (1) analyze the information and plan a strategy, (2) implement the strategy, and (3) check or assess their answer to ensure that it is a reasonable one. Integrative Practice Examples and End of Chapter Exercises. Users of previous editions have given us very positive feedback about the quality of the integrative examples at the end of each chapter and the variety of the end-of-chapter exercises. We have added two practice examples (Practice Example A and Practice Example B) to every Integrative Example in the text. Rather than replace end-of-chapter exercises with new exercises, we have opted in most chapters to increase the number of exercises. In most chapters, at least 10 new exercises have been added; and in many chapters, 20 or more exercises have been added. Use of IUPAC recommendations. We are pleased that our book serves the needs of instructors and students around the globe. Because communication among scientists in general, and chemists in particular, is made easier when we agree to use the same terms and notations, we have decided to follow with relatively few exceptions recommendations made by the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC). In particular, the version of the periodic table that now appears throughout the text is based on the one currently endorsed by IUPAC. The IUPAC-endorsed version places the elements lanthanum (La) and actinium (Ac) in the lanthanides and actinides series, respectively, rather than in group 3. Interestingly, almost every other chemistry book still uses the old version of the periodic table, even though the proper placement of La and Ac has been known for more than 20 years! We have also made the following important changes in specific chapters and appendices: In Chapters 1 to 6, many problems are solved by using both a stepwise approach and a conversion pathway approach. Students with no chemistry background may be intimidated by the conversion pathway approach and may prefer a stepwise approach. Those who require only a refresher will likely prefer and use the conversion pathway approach. We hope that the needs of both instructors and students will be well served by showing both approaches in the early chapters. In Chapter 6 (Gases), we have changed the definition of standard temperature and pressure (STP) to conform to the IUPAC recommendations. Also, we have added discussion about the molar volumes of gases and the distribution of molecular speeds. The discussion about the distribution of molecular speeds may be used as a springboard for justifying the Arrhenius form of the rate constant in Chapter 14 Chemical Kinetics. In Chapter 8 (Electrons in Atoms), we have put the material on the particlein- a box into a separate section that can be used, or excluded, at the instructor s discretion. The discussion has been expanded slightly to illustrate how wave functions are used to make probability statements for an electron in a particular state. In Chapter 10 (Chemical Bonding I: Basic Concepts), we have introduced the dash-and-wedge symbolism for representing three-dimensional structures of molecules, and this symbolism is used throughout the remainder of the text. Also, we have added a new Are You Wondering? box comparing oxidation states and formal charges. Chapter 12 (Intermolecular Forces: Liquids and Solids), has been reorganized so that intermolecular forces are discussed first. Trends in the properties of liquids and solids are then discussed in terms of the intermolecular forces contributing to the attraction among the entities making up the substance. In Chapter 14 (Chemical Kinetics), we have adopted the IUPAC recommendation for defining reaction rates, which takes into account the stoichiometric coefficients of the balanced chemical equation. We have also included a new Are You Wondering? box that provides a molecular interpretation of reaction progress. In Chapter 15 (Principles of Chemical Equilibrium), we have expanded the discussion of the relationships among activities, pressure and concentrations, and also among , and . In Chapter 16 (Acids and Bases), we have used curved arrows in a manner that is consistent with their use in organic chemistry, that is, to emphasize the movement of electron pairs in acid base reactions. Also, we present an improved and modernized discussion of the connection between molecular structure and acid strength. In Chapter 20 (Electrochemistry), we have made some changes in notation that are recommended by IUPAC. Most importantly, we introduce the concept of electron number, z, and use it in place of n in the Nernst equation and other equations. Chapter 21 (Chemistry of the Main-Group Elements I: Groups 1, 2, 13, and 14); and Chapter 22 (Chemistry of the Main-Group Elements II: Groups 18, 17, 16, 15, and Hydrogen) have been updated to include discussion of interesting and important materials, such as crown ether complexes, zeolites, and graphene. In Chapter 21, we introduce the concept of charge density and use it throughout these two chapters to rationalize similarities and differences in properties of elements. We have devoted two chapters to organic chemistry. Chapter 26 (Structures of Organic Compounds) focuses on the structures, conformations, preparation, and uses of organic compounds. Chapter 27 (Reactions of Organic Compounds) focuses on a few important types of reactions and their mechanisms. In examining these reactions, emphasis is placed on concepts introduced earlier in the text, such as acid or base strength, electronegativity, and polarizability. In Appendix D, we have added the molar heat capacity for each of the substances listed in Table D.2 (Therm
