The Clear, Well-Organized Introduction to Thermodynamics Theory and Calculations for All Chemical Engineering Undergraduate Students This text is designed to make thermodynamics far easier for undergraduate chemical engineering students to learn, and to help them perform thermodynamic calculations with confidence. Drawing on his award-winning courses at Penn State, Dr. Themis Matsoukas focuses on awhya as well as ahow.a He offers extensive imagery to help students conceptualize the equations, illuminating thermodynamics with more than 100 figures, as well as 190 examples from within and beyond chemical engineering. Part I clearly introduces the laws of thermodynamics with applications to pure fluids. Part II extends thermodynamics to mixtures, emphasizing phase and chemical equilibrium. Throughout, Matsoukas focuses on topics that link tightly to other key areas of undergraduate chemical engineering, including separations, reactions, and capstone design. More than 300 end-of-chapter problems range from basic calculations to realistic environmental applications; these can be solved with any leading mathematical software. Coverage includes ac Pure fluids, PVT behavior, and basic calculations of enthalpy and entropy ac Fundamental relationships and the calculation of properties from equations of state ac Thermodynamic analysis of chemical processes ac Phase diagrams of binary and simple ternary systems ac Thermodynamics of mixtures using equations of state ac Ideal and nonideal solutions ac Partial miscibility, solubility of gases and solids, osmotic processes ac Reaction equilibrium with applications to single and multiphase reactionsThe Clear, Well-Organized Introduction to Thermodynamics Theory and Calculations for All Chemical Engineering Undergraduate Students This text is designed to make thermodynamics far easier for undergraduate chemical engineering students to ...
