Differences between 5th Edition and 6th Edition textbook

I have the 5th edition textbook instead of the 6th. I've realize that some of the homework problems assigned may not correspond to the ones in the 5th edition. For instance, there was a question assigned on black body radiation which we obviously did not cover. I believe that chapter 1 might have been split into two chapters in the 6th edition as well.

1) Can anyone verify this? Can anyone post the preface to the 6th edition explaining the difference between the 5th and 6th?
2) Should I do homework problems according to the problems assigned last year? (The old syllabus is in the old course reader. Quantum World questions come only out of Chapter 1)
3) Can anyone post pictures of the questions in the 6th edition?

Thanks.

The easiest way to see the differences is to compare the differences side-by-side.
Copies are in the library.
Also, ~1400 students living on campus taking Chem 14A so take a look at one of their 6th editions.
