Basic concepts and applications are discussed in complete detail with attention to generality and logical In particular, entropy is defined before and independently of the definitions of temperature and heat, and of the simple-system model for many-particle systems. The Great Physicists from Galileo to Einstein.

GyftopoulosGian Paolo Beretta Limited preview – Hatsopoulos-Keenan statement of the second law of thermodynamics, its main conceptual consequences.

Eight Lectures on Theoretical Physics. My library Help Advanced Book Search. Basic concepts and applications are discussed in complete detail with attention to generality and logical consistency, removing ambiguities and limitations of traditional presentations.

Worked-out examples and end-of-chapter problems illustrate the use of energy and entropy balances as powerful analytical keystones in physics and engineering. It adopts the statement of second law introduced by Hatsopoulos and Keenan ini.

At the advanced level, the unique non-traditional order of exposition of the basic concepts and principles system, property, state, process, first law, energy, equilibrium, stable equilibrium, second law, entropy allows rigorous general definitions of energy and entropy valid for all systems large and small, few- and many- particles and all states stable and non-stable equilibrium, as well as non-equilibrium. The treatment resolves conceptual loopholes and logical deficiencies which are present in traditional treatments of thermodynamics, and it is rigorous because it builds up a set of unambiguous definitions of all the basic concepts needed in the exposition system, property, tbermodynamics nonequilibrium, equilibrium, and stable equilibrium state; process, weight process, reversible process; thermal hhermodynamics.

Proofs and details gytfopoulos be skipped because the students may find them in the book, if they wish, but the important aspect remains that the approach is rigorous and logically unambiguous. Thermodynamics in a nutshell but rigorous! Designed for thermodynamicw undergraduate and graduate students, this authoritative milestone in the foundational development of thermodynamics provides a unique reference for all physicists and engineers.

An Introduction to Statistical Thermodynamics. But the simple and general extension to nonequilibrium — absent thermodynamice traditional expositions and provided here avoiding intentionally any statistical reasoning — makes the approach timely and relevant for a variety of applications at the frontiers of the many fields of science and engineering where nonequilibrium is the keyword.

Elements of Chemical Thermodynamics: Euler relations and its consequences, Gibbs-Duhem relation, Gibbs free energy in terms of chemical potentials.

Because neither the students nor the teachers need to gyfto;oulos puzzled by the typical logical difficulties and ambiguities of the traditional expositions entropy defined in terms of heat and temperature, heat and temperature defined in terms of entropythey can all proceed quickly and safely to the applications of interest.

Thermodynamics and the Kinetic Theory of Gases: At the advanced level, the unique non-traditional order of exposition of the basic concepts and principles system, property, state, process, first law, energy, equilibrium, stable equilibrium, second law, entropy allows rigorous general definitions of energy and entropy valid for all systems large and small, few- and many- particles and all states stable and non-stable equilibrium, as well as non-equilibrium.

Fundamentals of Thermodybamics Physics. The book has had a scientific role in the development of thermodynamics, particularly because yhermodynamics has provided the first noncircular definition of entropy, valid also for nonequilibrium states.
