Sonntag easily in PDF format for free. We have deliberately directed our presentation to students. New concepts and definitions are presented in the context where they are first relevant in a natural progression. The first thermodynamic properties to be defined Chapter 2 are those that can be readily measured: pressure, specific volume, and temperature. In Chapter 3, tables of thermodynamic properties are introduced, but only in regard to these measurable properties.
Internal energy and enthalpy are introduced in connection with the first law, entropy with the second law, and the Helmholtz and Gibbs functions in the chapter on thermodynamic relations. Many real world realistic examples have been included in the book to assist the student in gaining an understanding of thermodynamics, and the problems at the end of each chapter have been carefully sequenced to correlate with the subject matter, and are grouped and identified as such.
For this edition we have placed concept questions in the text after major sections of material to allow students to reflect on the material just presented. These questions are intended to be quick self tests for students or used by teachers as wrap up checks for each of the subjects covered. Most of these are straightforward conclusions from the material without being memory facts, but a few will require some extended thoughts and we do provide a short answer in the solution manual.
Additional concept questions are placed as homework problems at the end of each chapter. We have added a short section at the end of each chapter that we call engineering applications.
These sections present motivating material with informative examples of how the particular chapter material is being used in engineering. The vast majority of these sections do not have any material with equations or developments of theory but they do contain pictures and explanations about a few real physical systems where the chapter material is relevant for the engineering analysis and design.
We have deliberately kept these sections short and we do not try to explain all the details in the devices shown so the reader can get an idea about the applications in a relatively short time. For some of the later chapters where the whole chapter could be characterized as an engineering application this section can be a little involved including formulas and theory.
We have placed these sections in the end of the chapters so we do not disrupt the main flow of the presentation, but we do suggest that each instructor try to incorporate some of this material up front as motivation for students to study this particular chapter material.
