**Description**

The book is divided into four parts. The first part focuses on the macroscopic properties of physical systems. It begins with the descriptive study of gases and liquids, and proceeds to the study of thermodynamics, which is a comprehensive macroscopic theory of the behavior of material systems. The second part focuses on dynamics, including gas kinetic theory, transport processes, and chemical reaction kinetics. The third part presents quantum mechanics and spectroscopy. The fourth part presents the relationship between molecular and macroscopic properties of systems through the study of statistical mechanics. This theory is applied to the structure of condensed phases. The book is designed so that the first three parts can be studied in any order, while the fourth part is designed to be a capstone in which the other parts are integrated into a cohesive whole.
