Introduction to Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics – Smith & Van Ness – 7th Edition


Introduction to Thermodynamics, 7/e, presents comprehensive coverage of the subject of thermodynamics from a chemical engineering viewpoint. The text provides a thorough exposition of the principles of thermodynamics and details their application to chemical processes.

The chapters are written in a clear, logically organized manner, and contain an abundance of realistic problems, examples, and illustrations to help understand complex concepts. New ideas, terms, and symbols constantly challenge the readers to think and encourage them to apply this fundamental body of knowledge to the of practical problems.

The comprehensive nature of this makes it a useful reference both in graduate courses and for professional practice. The seventh edition continues to be an excellent tool for teaching the subject of chemical to undergraduate students.
