Engineering and Chemical Thermodynamics – Milo D. Koretsky – 2nd Edition


Chemical face the challenge of learning the difficult concept and application of entropy and the 2nd Law of . By following a visual approach and offering qualitative discussions of the role of interactions, Koretsky helps them understand and visualize thermodynamics. Highlighted examples show how the material is applied in the real world. Expanded coverage includes biological content and examples, the Equation of State approach for both liquid and vapor phases in VLE, and the practical side of the 2nd Law. Engineers will then be able to use this as the basis for more advanced concepts.

Koretsky’s qualitative discussion of the role of molecular interactions and the visual approaches he uses helps students understand and visualize thermodynamics.

and , 2e is designed for Thermodynamics I and Thermodynamics II courses taught out of the department to chemical engineering majors. Specifically designed to accommodate students with different learning styles, this text helps establish a solid foundation in engineering and chemical thermodynamics.

Clear conceptual development, worked-out examples and numerous end-of-chapter promote deep learning of thermodynamics and teach students how to apply thermodynamics to real-world engineering problems.By showing how principles of thermodynamics relate to molecular concepts learned in prior courses, Engineering and Chemical Thermodynamics, 2e helps students construct new knowledge on a solid conceptual foundation.
