    This classic by the Nobel Laureate is still recognized as one of the best introductions to thermodynamics. A model of conciseness and clarity, it covers fundamental facts and definitions, first and second fundamental principles of thermodynamics, applications to special states of equilibrium, and much more. Numerous worked examples. edition.   Well done, Professor Berry. I loved your book. Three Laws of Nature: a little book on thermodynamics () By R. Stephen Berry. Yale University Press.

    "Thermodynamics of Materials" introduces the basic underlying principles of thermodynamics as well as their applicability to the behavior of all classes of materials, while providing an integrated approach from macro- (or classical) thermodynamics to meso- and nanothermodynamics, and microscopic (or statistical) thermodynamics. The book is Brand: Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg. About the Book The purpose of this work is to propagate Vedic energy doctrines and related fundamental concepts that led Indian astronomers to the amazing discoveries of zero, infinity and the self driven mercury wheel. Authors have attempted to show that Vedic hymns devoted to a number of powers of nature provide a good opportunity to investigate fundamental principles .

    Covering classical thermodynamics with a focus on practical applications, this book provides a basic foundational skillset applicable across a variety of engineering fields. Worked examples demonstrate the appropriate use of new formulas, while clarifying the proper approach to generalized problems of a relevant nature. Introduction to the Second Law of Thermodynamics: Heat Engines and Their Efficiency; Carnot’s Perfect Heat Engine: The Second Law of Thermodynamics Restated; Applications of Thermodynamics: Heat Pumps and Refrigerators; Entropy and the Second Law of Thermodynamics: Disorder and the Unavailability of Energy.

This “little book on thermodynamics” packs a powerful punch. Anyone who has studied thermodynamics at the university level knows that it is a very mathematically-intensive subject. But in this book, the author has succeeded in presenting a very lucid introduction to thermodynamics with no (or minimal) mathematics/5(8).

The book, which is entirely non-mathematical, demands an acquaintance with thermodynamics such as might be expected of any college student of physics, engineering, or chemistry, but the argument can be understood by anyone interested in the critical analysis of the fundamental concepts of science.

In my judgment, Fundamentals of Engineering Thermodynamics by Moran et al is an excellent book, especially in its coverage of the difficult-to-learn subject of the 2nd law of thermodynamics and entropy. Another good book is Introduction to Engineering Thermodynamics by. This book demonstrates this fact using simple pedagogical tools, thus showing that entropy cannot be interpreted as a basic measure of disorder.

Deacon. Enter Into the Cool, in which the authors claim that the study of thermodynamics (in some ways the neglected stepchild of the sciences) can inform our understanding of biology, ecology and even economics.

The authors begin by rephrasing the Second Law—as ’Nature abhors a gradient’—and proceed to illustrate its relevance to large systems.The first law of thermodynamics states that energy, which includes heat, is conserved. Perhaps the simplest statement of the second law is that spontaneous change in nature occurs from a state of greater order to a state of lesser order disorder.

The relationship of thermodynamics to living systems is discussed in the context of these laws.A third treatment of Thermodynamics has hitherto proved the most fruitful. This method is distinct from the other two, in that it does not advance the mechanical theory of heat, but, keeping aloof from de nite assumptions as to its nature, starts direct from a few very general empirical facts, mainly the two fundamental principles of File Size: 1MB.
