A fun project

    Finally a reason to post

    I am currently working through Linus Pauling's General Chemistry because I want to become a neuroscientist, and I obviously need to know chemistry for this field. But there is no comprehensive solutions manual as of yet!! So I started working on one on wikibooks:

    http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Category:Solutions_to_General_Chemistry [Broken]

    I need a lot of help. The first few chapters appeal to physics theories I have little to no knowledge of (I am a linguistics student at this juncture), and there are probably mistakes, ambiguities, and areas where I just can't contribute anything at this time

    It would be really cool if we could compile this manual into something worthy of typesetting in LaTeX. I realize you can't do much if you don't have the book, but I will make an effort to include more of the original problems even when I can't solve them
