Fundamentals of Statistical Thermodynamics – Van Wylen – 6th Edition


During the last decades, Sonntag, Borgnakke and Van Wylen’s OF THERMODYNAMICS has been the main textbook in the field. Now updated and with many worked examples, task and illustrations, and a rich selection of -based resources, the new Sixth Edition continues to present a complete and rigorous treatment of classical , maintaining an engineering perspective The text lays the foundation for further studies in such as fluid mechanics, heat transfer and statistics, and prepares students to effectively apply thermodynamics in engineering practice.
