Contents:
Machine generated contents note: 1. Introduction and synopsis; 2. Problems and concepts at the interface of mechanics and thermodynamics; 3. Phases, interfaces, dispersions, and the first three principles of thermodynamics; 4. Internal energy, the First Law, heat, conservation of total energy; 5. Equations of state for one-component and multicomponent systems; 6. Applications of the mass and energy balances and the equations of state to several classes of thermodynamic problems; 7. The Second Law, absolute temperature, entropy definition and calculation, and entropy inequality; 8. Further implications of the Second Law. Introduction of Helmholtz free energy, Gibbs free energy, chemical potential, and applications to phase equilibria, heat transfer and mass transfer; 9. Thermodynamic fugacity, thermodynamic activity, and other thermodynamic functions (U, H, S, A, G, [mu]) of ideal and nonideal solutions; 10. Vapor-liquid equilibria (VLE) with applications to distillation; 11. Gas-liquid equilibria (GLE) and applications to gas absorption or desorption; 12. Applications to liquid-liquid equilibria and liquid-liquid extraction; 13. Osmosis, osmotic pressure, osmotic equilibrium, and reverse osmosis; 14. Third Law and molecular basis of the Second and Third Laws; 15. Some special implications and applications of the First and Second Laws; 16. Chemical reaction equilibria: one reaction; 17. Chemical reaction equilibria: two or more reactions occurring simultaneously; 18. Applications of thermodynamics to energy engineering and environmental engineering.
Summary: "Master the principles of thermodynamics with this comprehensive undergraduate textbook, carefully developed to provide students of chemical engineering and chemistry with a deep and intuitive understanding of the practical applications of these fundamental ideas and principles. Logical and lucid explanations introduce core thermodynamic concepts in the context of their measurement and experimental origin, giving students a thorough understanding of how theoretical concepts apply to practical situations. A broad range of real-world applications relate key topics to contemporary issues, such as energy efficiency, environmental engineering and climate change, and further reinforce students' understanding of the core material. This is a carefully organized, highly pedagogical treatment, including over 500 open-ended study questions for discussion, over 150 varied homework problems, clear and objective standards for measuring student progress, and a password-protected solution manual for instructors"--
