not yet rated|write a review
Thermodynamics is a self-contained analysis of physical and chemical processes based on classical thermodynamic principles. Emphasis is placed on the fundamental principles with a combination of theory and practice, demonstrating their application to a variety of disciplines. This edition has been completely revised and updated to include new material and novel formulations, including new formulation and interpretation of The Second Law, discussions of heat vs. work, uniqueness of chemical potential, and construction of functions of state. This book will appeal to graduate students and professional chemists and physicists who wish to acquire a more sophisticated overview of thermodynamics and related subject matter. Clear explanations of abstract theoretical concepts Complete revision and update, including novel formulations not described elsewhere Exhaustive coverage of graphical, numerical, and analytical computational techniques The latest applications in science and engineering
