Keith Stowe's An Introduction to Thermodynamics and Statistical Mechanics PDF

By Keith Stowe

This introductory textbook for traditional undergraduate classes in thermodynamics has been thoroughly rewritten to discover a better variety of subject matters, extra truly and concisely. beginning with an outline of vital quantum behaviours, the booklet teaches scholars how one can calculate possibilities with a purpose to supply an organization beginning for later chapters. It introduces the tips of classical thermodynamics and explores them either in most cases and as they're utilized to precise strategies and interactions. the rest of the booklet offers with statistical mechanics. every one subject ends with a boxed precis of rules and effects, and each bankruptcy comprises various homework difficulties, overlaying a large diversity of problems. solutions are given to odd-numbered difficulties, and suggestions to even-numbered difficulties can be found to teachers at
