New PDF release: General Thermodynamics

By Donald Olander

  simply because classical thermodynamics developed into many branches of technology and engineering, such a lot undergraduate classes at the topic are taught from the point of view of every region of specialization. General Thermodynamics combines components from mechanical and chemical engineering, chemistry (including electrochemistry), fabrics technological know-how, and biology to provide a different and thorough therapy of thermodynamics that's broader in scope than different primary texts.

This ebook comprises classroom-tested fabrics designed to satisfy the tutorial necessities for college kids from numerous medical and engineering backgrounds in one path. the 1st part makes a speciality of classical thoughts of thermodynamics, while the latter part explores field-specific functions, together with a distinct bankruptcy on biothermodynamics.

The book’s method is unified, concise, and multidisciplinary, permitting scholars to appreciate how the foundations of thermodynamics follow to all technical fields that comment on this such a lot basic of medical theories. It additionally deals a rigorous method of the quantitative features of thermodynamics, followed by way of transparent factors to aid scholars transition easily from the actual ideas to their mathematical representations.

Each bankruptcy includes quite a few labored examples taken from diversified engineering functions, illustrations, and an intensive set of workouts to aid the cloth. a whole recommendations handbook is on the market to professors with qualifying direction adoptions.
