Overview

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.


Features

  • 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.
