This text adopts an approach based upon a general criterion for equilibrium (developed directly from the laws of thermodynamics) which yields a general strategy for obtaining conditions for equilibrium. This strategy is then applied to a collection of systems of increasing complexity and sophistication to derive in each case the conditions for equilibrium - working equations for solving practical problems in thermodynamics are shown to be restatements of these equilibrium conditions. The presentation applies to all classes of materials - including applications to ceramics, metals, polymers and electronic materials.This text adopts an approach based upon a general criterion for equilibrium (developed directly from the laws of thermodynamics) which yields a general strategy for obtaining conditions for equilibrium.
