Chemical Thermodynamics : An Introduction Paperback / softback
by Erno Keszei
This course-derived undergraduate textbook provides a concise explanation of the key concepts and calculations of chemical thermodynamics.
Instead of the usual `classical' introduction, this text adopts a straightforward postulatory approach that introduces thermodynamic potentials such as entropy and energy more directly and transparently. Structured around several features to assist students' understanding, Chemical Thermodynamics :Develops applications and methods for the ready treatment of equilibria on a sound quantitative basis. Requires minimal background in calculus to understand the text and presents formal derivations to the student in a detailed but understandable way. Offers end-of-chapter problems (and answers) for self-testing and review and reinforcement, of use for self- or group study. This book is suitable as essential reading for courses in a bachelor and master chemistry program and is also valuable as a reference or textbook for students of physics, biochemistry and materials science.
