Description Introduction to Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics Seventh Edition is a comprehensive presentation of the subject of thermodynamics from a chemical engineering perspective. The text provides a thorough coverage of the principles of thermodynamics and details their application to chemical processes. The chapters are logically organized, and include numerous realistic illustrations, examples, and end-of-chapter problems. Understanding does require reasonable diligence and motivation on the part of the reader, but every effort has been made to facilitate the learning process.
Although the book is written primarily for undergraduates, its contents should make it a useful resource both in graduate courses and for professional reference.
Notable features of this seventh edition:
Of the more than 740 end-of-chapter problems, 20% are new to this edition.
The book is adaptable to both one- and two-term courses, and material can be chosen to accommodate curricular constraints.
Material of special importance to chemical engineers including applications of equations of state, chemical-reaction equilibrium, and phase equilibria, are given comprehensive coverage.
The treatment of the vital, but difficult topic of phase equilibria progresses from qualitative discussion to simple models for vapor/liquid equilibrium, to more advanced and specialized applications.
The final chapter is a self-contained introduction to molecular thermodynamics.
