This is an introductory text-book on Thermodynamics for students who have
taken elementary courses in Physics and Chemistry, and are familiar with the
elements of the Differential and Integral Calculus. Topics covered includes:
Fundamental Facts And Definitions, The First Fundamental Principle Of
Thermodynamics, The Second Fundamental Principle Of Thermodynamics, Applications
To Special States Of Equilibrium.
note explains the following topics: Classification of Thermodynamic Cycles , Gas
Power Cycles, Gas Power Cycles for Different Applications, Compressors:
centrifugal and axial-flow, Combustion chambers, Turbines.
Thermodynamics is the branch of science concerned with heat and
temperature and their relation to energy and work. Being concentrated on a
wide range of applications of thermodynamics, this book gathers a series of
contributions by the finest scientists in the world, gathered in an orderly
manner. It can be used in post-graduate courses for students and as a
reference book, as it is written in a language pleasing to the reader.
Carefully observing everyday motion allows us to deduce six essential
statements: everyday motion is continuous, conserved, relative, reversible,
mirror-invariant and lazy. This text explores how these six results are deduced
and how they fit with all those observations that seem to contradict them.
Clearly written treatment elucidates
fundamental concepts and demonstrates their plausibility and usefulness.
Language is informal, examples are vivid and lively, and the perspectivie is
fresh. Based on lectures delivered to engineering students, this work will also
be valued by scientists, engineers, technicians, businessmen, anyone facing
energy challenges of the future.
This book presents the selection of various high level
contributions involving thermodynamics. The book goes from the fundamentals up
to several applications in different scientific fields. The content of the book
has been classified in six sections: Classical Thermodynamics, Statistical
Thermodynamics, Property Prediction in Thermodynamics, Material and Products,
Non Equilibrium and Thermodynamics in Diverse Areas.
topics:Statistical Mechanics, Temperature, Heat, Entropy, Law of definite
proportions, Definition of a Mole, Definition of amu, Archimedes, Pressure,
