Thermodynamics is a fascinating and exciting subject that deals with energy, which is essential for the preservation of life, thermodynamics has long been a fundamental part of engineering curricula throughout the world.
This work is an international bestseller for those who study this subject. This new edition of thermodynamics makes it easier for students to develop a more intuitive understanding of thermodynamics. It includes a clear introduction to the first law of thermodynamics.
It features separate energy analysis of closed systems, combined coverage of energy analysis and control volume mass, plus revised coverage of compressible flow. It provides a more precise approach and seeks a physical understanding of the fundamental concepts of thermodynamics.
The authors offer a text for engineering careers that ‘speaks directly to tomorrow’s engineers’. It contains more illustrations than other books in its category, with images that show everyday scenes, so that students can easily identify situations. The figures and photographs emphasize some key concepts that would otherwise go unnoticed; other images are presented as a summary.
