Description

This book illustrates the practical nature of thermodynamics in chemical engineering. It uses a minimum of mathematics with no sacrifice of rigor. It presents the second law in an innovative manner independent of statistical arguments, instead developing it as a natural consequence of physical experience.

Index.
  • A major goal of this text is to impress studentswith the practical nature of thermodynamics.
  • Reliance on mathematics is minimized, but atno sacrifice of rigor. Topics such as the second law are presentedindependently of statistical arguments, and developed as a naturalconsequence of physical experience.
  • An experimental rather than an abstract approach,to the development of the second law shows how this theorycan be used in real situations.
  • The "free body diagram" approachto problem solving gives students confidence that this analysistechnique will always be successful.
  • Numerous examples show students in detail how the principles of thermodynamics areapplied to real situations.
