Many inaccuracies in Chapter 1

28 January 2019
The last sentence of section 1.2 can be very confusing to people who know nothing about electricity. What is “a form of energy common in nature”. Does energy move from one place to another? Section 1.3.3 “The elements that are of greatest...are printed in red (in Table 1.1)...might be involved with.” No element in Table 1.1 is printed in red. The electron configuration is given in Figure 1.1, but it is not obvious to deduct from the Table that the configuration for Cu is (2, 8, 8, 10, 1). Section 1.3.4 An atom can become charged by the removal OR the addition of electrons. The last sentence is an enigma. These are a few examples that make that Chapter quite a poor Introduction for this book. I am quite surprised that proof reading reading did not address those issues. I am just starting reading this book and do not imply that it is a bad book. But I am wondering whether new students may not get confused reading this Introduction. Cheers, Christophe
