This leading text in the field maintains its engaging, readable style while presenting a broader range of applications that motivate engineers to learn the core thermodynamics concepts. Two new coauthors help update the material and integrate engaging, new problems. Throughout the chapters, they focus on the relevance of thermodynamics to modern engineering problems. Many relevant engineering based situations are also presented to help engineers model and solve these problems.
This book presents a comprehensive and rigorous treatment of classical thermodynamics. Noted for its treatment of the second law, it clearly presents both theory and application. Environmental topics and applications have been expanded and updated.
