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.
Heat and Thermodynamics presents the core topics in thermal physics in a concise format using the characteristic, problem based learning approach; the trade mark of the College Work Out Series. Written for undergraduates taking their first course in thermal physics, the book has combined the aim of promoting understanding through problem solving and, by putting many of the problems in traditional examination form, providing exam preparation. The author begins with a summary of the more important basic concepts and establishes basic terminology and outlook before examining each of the core areas subsequent chapters.
This book differs from other thermodynamics texts in its objective which is to provide engineers with the concepts, tools, and experience needed to solve practical real-world energy problems. The presentation integrates computer tools (e.g., EES) with thermodynamic concepts to allow engineering students and practising engineers to solve problems they would otherwise not be able to solve. The use of examples, solved and explained in detail, and supported with property diagrams that are drawn to scale, is ubiquitous in this textbook. The examples are not trivial, drill problems, but rather complex and timely real world problems that are of interest by themselves. As with the presentation, the solutions to these examples are complete and do not skip steps. Similarly the book includes numerous end of chapter problems, both typeset and online. Most of these problems are more detailed than those found in other thermodynamics textbooks. The supplements include complete solutions to all exercises, software downloads, and additional content on selected topics. These are available at the book web site www.cambridge.org/KleinandNellis.
This book is designed for use in an introductory course in thermodynamics. It is aimed at students of Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science, and Engineering. As an undergraduate text, it gives a clear description of the theoretical framework of thermodynamics, while providing specific examples of its use in a wide variety of problems. These examples include topics that are atypical of undergraduate texts, such as biological systems, atmospheric phenomena, and polymers. The narrative is infused with historical notes on the characters who make up the story of thermodynamics, enlivening the material while keeping the reader engaged.
In this book the author systemizes mathematical tools of thermodynamics, and concurrently emphasizes questions that are often a source of error in thermodynamic calculations. He deals with thermodynamic characteristic functions, the differential equations for a one-phase region and more.
In this classic of modern science, the Nobel laureate presents a clear treatment of systems, the First and Second Laws of Thermodynamics, entropy, thermodynamic potentials, and much more. Calculus required.
