An Introduction to Equilibrium Thermodynamics discusses classical thermodynamics and irreversible thermodynamics. It introduces the laws of thermodynamics and the connection between statistical concepts and observable macroscopic properties of a thermodynamic system. Chapter 1 discusses the first law of thermodynamics while Chapters 2 through 4 deal with statistical concepts. The succeeding chapters describe the link between entropy and the reversible heat process concept of entropy; the second law of thermodynamics; Legendre transformations and Jacobian algebra. Finally, Chapter 10 provides an introduction to irreversible thermodynamics. This book will be useful as an introductory text to thermodynamics for engineering students.Absolute English system, 321 Absolute scale, 5 Accessible energy states, 78 Adiabatic constant, 37 irreversible process, 41 perfect ... 76 probability distribution, 76, 80 statistics, 107 Bose-Einstein gas, 98, 120, 128 statistics, 107 Boson, 122 Boson gas, 125 Boundary of ... 44, 47, 181, 269 diagram, 44 efficiency, 45, 46, 47, 187, 188 engine, 45, 47 refrigerator, 47 schematic, 45 Celsius scale, 5 Centigradeanbsp;...
