This 1971 book offers a different, more practical approach to the standard industry textbook.
The focus of Thermodynamic Concepts and Applications is on traditional thermodynamics topics, while structurally the book introduces the thermal-fluid sciences. 2nd law topics are introduced hierarchically in one chapter, important structure for a beginner. The book is designed for the instructor to select topics and combine them with material from other chapters seamlessly. Pedagogical devices include: learning objectives, chapter overviews and summaries, historical perspectives, and numerous examples, questions and problems and lavish illustrations. Students are encouraged to use the National Institute of Science and Technology (NIST) online properties database.
This textbook is a general introduction to chemical thermodynamics.
The book includes all the subject matter covered in a typical undergraduate course in engineering thermodynamics. It includes 20 to 25 worked examples for each chapter, carefully chosen to expose students to diverse applications of engineering thermodynamics. Each worked example is designed to be representative of a class of physical problems. At the end of each chapter, there are an additional 10 to 15 problems for which numerical answers are provided.
Equilibrium Thermodynamics gives a comprehensive but concise course in the fundamentals of classical thermodynamics. Although the subject is essentially classical in nature, illustrative material is drawn widely from modern physics and free use is made of microscopic ideas to illuminate it. The overriding objective in writing the book was to achieve a clear exposition: to give an account of the subject that it both stimulating and easy to learn from. Classical thermodynamics has such wide application that it can be taught in many ways. The terms of reference for Equilibrium Thermodynamics are primarily those of the undergraduate physicist; but it is also suitable for courses in chemistry, engineering, materials science etc. The subject is usually taught in the first or second year of an undergraduate course, but the book takes the student to degree standard (and beyond). Prerequisites are elementary or school-level thermal physics.
Self-contained treatment focuses on the solution of lattice-dynamics problems, calculations of total crystal potential, evaluation of thermodynamic functions. Only modest background in quantum mechanics, solid state physics required.
