Thermodynamics for Chemists, Physicists and Engineers Hardback
This textbook takes an interdisciplinary approach to the subject of thermodynamics and is therefore suitable for undergraduates in chemistry, physics and engineering courses.
The book is an introduction to phenomenological thermodynamics and its applications to phase transitions and chemical reactions, with some references to statistical mechanics.
It strikes the balance between the rigorousness of the Callen text and phenomenological approach of the Atkins text.
The book is divided in three parts. The first introduces the postulates and laws of thermodynamics and complements these initial explanations with practical examples.
The second part is devoted to applications of thermodynamics to phase transitions in pure substances and mixtures.
The third part covers thermodynamic systems in which chemical reactions take place.
There are some sections on more advanced topics such as thermodynamic potentials, natural variables, non-ideal mixtures and electrochemical reactions, which make this book of suitable also to post-graduate students.
