Fundamentals of Statistical Thermodynamics – Van Wylen – 6th Edition


During the last decades, Sonntag, Borgnakke and Van Wylen’s FUNDAMENTALS OF THERMODYNAMICS has been the main in the field. Now updated and with many worked examples, task and illustrations, and a rich selection of web-based resources, the new Sixth Edition continues to present a complete and rigorous treatment of classical terminology, maintaining an engineering perspective The text lays the foundation for further studies in such as fluid , and statistics, and prepares students to effectively apply thermodynamics in engineering practice.
