This ideal review for the thousands of students who enroll in thermodynamics courses
Thermodynamics for Engineers is intended to help engineering students in their understanding of the discipline in a more concise, ordered way than that used in standard textbooks, which are often filled with extraneous material never addressed in the classroom. This edition conforms to the more user-friendly, pragmatic approach now used in most classes. The outline provides practice sets to allow students to work through the theory they've learned. Material is organized by discrete topics such as gas cycles, vapor cycles, and refrigeration cycles. Practice tests simulate the quizzes and tests given in class. There are also 500 fully solved problems, as well as 180 questions of the type that appear on the engineers' qualifying exam.
This new edition boasts problem-solving videos available online and embedded in the ebook version.
