ISBN13: 978-0201380279
ISBN10: 0201380277

Summary: This text provides a balanced, well-organized treatment of thermodynamics and statistical mechanics, making thermal physics interesting and accessible to anyone who has completed a year of calculus-based introductory physics. Part I introduces essential concepts of thermodynamics and statistical mechanics from a unified view, applying concepts in a select number of illustrative examples. Parts II and III explore further applications of classical thermodynamics and st
atistical mechanics. Throughout, the emphasis is on real-world applications.

Features
  • A balanced treatment of both classical thermodynamics and statistical mechanics, showing the relation between them without confusing the student.
  • A rich supply of applications capture students' attention and show how thermal physics relates to engineering, chemistry, earth science, condensed matter physics, astrophysics, and everyday life.
  • Integrated problems at the ends of sections and subsections encourage students to actively apply what they have been reading and check their understanding.
  • The text includes many problems that require the use of the computer; for instance, spreadsheet calculations, plotting, numerical integration, root finding, and Monte Carlo simulation.
  • Designed primarily for a one-semester course, the text also contains sufficient material for longer courses and advanced projects.
  • The text is accessible to anyone who has completed a year of calculus-based introductory physics.
  • A clear and lively writing style engages readers.
