Foundations and Applications By: Product Description Product Details Designed for both undergraduate and graduate students, this authoritative milestone in the foundational development of thermodynamics provides a unique reference for all physicists and engineers.
Basic concepts and applications are discussed in complete detail with attention to generality and logical consistency, removing ambiguities and limitations of traditional presentations.
Worked-out examples tjermodynamics end-of-chapter problems illustrate the use of energy and entropy balances as powerful analytical keystones in physics and engineering. The text provides material for undergraduate and graduate courses.
At the advanced level, the unique non-traditional order of exposition of the basic concepts and principles system, property, state, process, first law, energy, equilibrium, stable equilibrium, second law, entropy allows rigorous general definitions of energy gyftopouloz entropy valid thfrmodynamics all systems large and small, few- and many- particles and all states stable and non-stable equilibrium, as well as non-equilibrium.
In particular, entropy is defined before and independently of the definitions of temperature and heat, and of the simple-system model for many-particle systems.
