Thermodynamics and Chemistry (2nd Edition)

File Size: 8.91 Mb

This second edition of Thermodynamics and Chemistry is a revised and enlarged version of the first edition published by Prentice Hall in 2001. The book is designed primarily as a textbook for a one-semester course for graduate or undergraduate students who have already been introduced to thermodynamics in a physical chemistry course.

The PDF file of this book contains hyperlinks to pages, sections, equations, tables, figures, bibliography items, and problems. If you are viewing the PDF on a computer screen, tablet, or color e-reader, the links are colored in blue.

Scattered through the text are sixteen one-page biographical sketches of some of the historical giants of thermodynamics. A list is given on the preceding page. The sketches are not intended to be comprehensive biographies, but rather to illustrate the human side of thermodynamics—the struggles and controversies by which the concepts and experimental methodology of the subject were developed.
