## Description

This book provides a solid foundation for understanding abstract concepts of phase and reaction equilibria (eg, energy, fugacity, and Gibbs activity of partial molars) and shows how to apply these concepts to solve practical problems using numerous clear examples.

It also presents the numerical methods necessary to solve real world problems, as well as the necessary basic mathematics, facilitating its use as a reference work of self-learning. In the example of problems that require MATHCAD® for the solution, the results of the intermediate steps are provided, which allows the reader to easily track the errors and understand the order of magnitude of the different quantities involved.
