The thoroughly revised and updated Second Edition continues to serve as an important textbook on the application of thermodynamics to chemical, materials, and metallurgical problems. The authors include a minimum number of laws, axioms, and postulates-avoiding the unnecessary repetition often encountered in textbooks based on historical sequences of development in thermodynamics. Supporting the text are: Several numerical examples, problem sets at the end of each chapter, a floppy disk for chemical equilibrium calculations, and use of the SI system. This text is intended for students, engineers, and specialists in materials science, metallurgical engineering, chemical engineering, chemistry, electrochemistry, and related fields.
