Designed by two MIT professors, this authoritative text discusses basic concepts and applications in detail, emphasizing generality, definitions, and logical consistency. More than 300 solved problems cover realistic energy systems and processes.
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.
The role of thermodynamics in modern physics is not just to provide an approximate treatment of large thermal systems, but, more importantly, to provide an organising set of ideas. Thermodynamics: A complete undergraduate course presents thermodynamics as a self-contained and elegant set of ideas and methods. It unfolds thermodynamics for undergraduate students of physics, chemistry or engineering, beginning at first year level. The book introduces the necessary mathematical methods, assuming almost no prior knowledge, and explains concepts such as entropy and free energy at length, with many examples. This book aims to convey the style and power of thermodynamic reasoning, along with applications such as Joule-Kelvin expansion, the gas turbine, magnetic cooling, solids at high pressure, chemical equilibrium, radiative heat exchange and global warming, to name a few. It mentions but does not pursue statistical mechanics, in order to keep the logic clear.
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.
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.
The fundamental aspects of classical thermodynamics are presented in a simple compact way. The equations derived are illustrated by numerous (111) examples, often direct application of the relations just obtained. The (four) laws of thermodynamics are presented and illustrated. The need to define thermodynamic temperature, the meaning of auxiliary thermodynamic functions, the origin, usefulness and use of partial molar quantities are all examined. Gaseous systems, phase equilibria and chemical reactions are quantitatively treated. It is shown how chemical reactions can provide work. Ideal and non ideal solutions are presented with the various standard states and activity coefficients. This book will be of use to a wide audience of students and professionals in the fields of Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Materials Science and Bio related Sciences. REVIEW Dr. Infelta has prepared a compact Introductory Thermodynamics book which will serve well for mature students who need a command of this important field. Undergraduate students will find the presentation logical, the examples thoughtful, and the coverage thorough. Students and professionals for whom memory or mastery of previous thermodynamics courses have dimmed, will find, in addition to the above virtues, careful derivation of the properties of non-ideal systems and emphasis on when to use these results instead of ideal system results, treatment of multireaction equilibria, and (a personal favorite) a succinct elucidation of that odd proposition of thermodynamics, Le Châtelier's Principle. These students will value this small volume packed with the power of classical thermodynamics. Lynn Melton, Professor of Chemistry, University of Texas, Dallas.
