A textbook on statistical thermodynamics at the senior undergraduate level. The course covers the statistical thermodynamics of ideal gases from quantized energy levels. Applications on gas reaction kinetics and kinetic theory of gases are included.
by Joseph M. Powers - University of Notre Dame
Basic concepts of thermodynamics. Topics covered: Properties of a pure substance; Work and heat; First law of thermodynamics; Second law of thermodynamics; Power and refrigeration systems; Theoretical foundations of classical thermodynamics.
by J. B. Tatum
The text covers temperature, thermal conduction, thermodynamic processes, properties of gases, the first and second laws, heat capacity, expansion of gases, enthalpy, the Joule-Thomson experiments, heat engines, the Clausius-Clapeyron equation, etc.
by J. Karl Johnson - University of Pittsburgh
This text will provide the student with basic thermodynamic tools for solving many classes of problems. It is intended for first year chemical engineering graduate students with at least one undergraduate course in classical thermodynamics.
