  1. Thermodynamics

    Jacobs, P. W. M. (Patrick W. M.)
    London, UK : Imperial College Press ; Singapore ; Hackensack, NJ : Distributed by World Scientific, c2013.

    This textbook on thermodynamics is intended primarily for honours and B. Sc students majoring in physical chemistry. However, students of physics, engineering and biochemistry will also find the book relevant to their studies. Its principal features are a much shorter presentation of the laws of thermodynamics than is customary, made possible by the definition of the thermodynamic scale of temperature using only one fixed point (the triple point of water) which immediately follows the Zeroth Law. The author's first exposure to thermodynamics revealed that its usefulness seemed to be mostly confined to the study of gases in equilibrium. Readers of this book will find that applications of thermodynamics to liquids and solids as well as gases are emphasized, and they will learn that thermodynamics can be applied to systems which are not in equilibrium. This book contains three learning aids. Fully worked out examples are included at appropriate places in the text, which also includes numerous exercises. These are designed to help the reader stop and think about what he or she has just read. Answers to the exercises are given at the end of each section and there are also problems at the end of each chapter which readers can work out on their own.

  2. Thermodynamics

    Honig, Jurgen M.
    2nd ed. - San Diego : Academic Press, c1999.

    This book provides a concise overview of thermodynamics, and is written in a manner which makes the difficult subject matter understandable. "Thermodynamics" is systematic in its presentation and covers many subjects that are generally not dealt with in competing books such as: Caratheodory's approach to the Second Law, the general theory of phase transitions, the origin of phase diagrams, the treatment of matter subjected to a variety of external fields, and the subject of irreversible thermodynamics. The book provides a first-principles, postulational, self-contained description of physical and chemical processes. Designed both as a textbook and as a monograph, the book stresses the fundamental principles, the logical development of the subject matter, and the applications in a variety of disciplines. This revised edition is based on teaching experience in the classroom, and incorporates many exercises in varying degrees of sophistication. The stress laid on a didactic, logical presentation, and on the relation between theory and experiment should provide a reader with a more intuitive understanding of the basic principles. Graduate students and professional chemists in physical chemistry and inorganic chemistry, as well as graduate students and professionals in physics who wish to acquire a more sophisticated overview of thermodynamics and related subject matter will find this book extremely helpful. It takes the reader through various steps to understanding: review of fundamentals; development of subject matter; and, applications in a variety of disciplines.

  3. Thermodynamics

    Gokcen, N. A.
    2nd ed. - New York : Plenum Press, 1996.

    The thoroughly revised and updated Second Edition continues to serve as an important textbook on the application of thermodynamics to chemical, materials, and metallurgical problems. The authors include a minimum number of laws, axioms, and postulates - avoiding the unnecessary repetition often encountered in textbooks based on historical sequences of development in thermodynamics. Supporting the text are: several numerical examples, problem sets at the end of each chapter, a floppy disk for chemical equilibrium calculations, and use of the SI system. This text is intended for students, engineers, and specialists in materials science, metallurgical engineering, chemical engineering, chemistry, electrochemistry, and related fields.
