Heat and Thermodynamics – Mark W. Zemansky, Richard H. Dittman – 7th Edition


This respected text deals with large-scale, easily known thermal and then proceeds to small-scale, less accessible . The wide range of used in Dittman and ’s text simultaneously challenges students who have completed a course in impartial calculus without alienating those students who have only taken a calculus-based general physics course. Examples of calculations are presented shortly after important formulas are derived.

Students see the of related to the formulas. Actual thermodynamic are explained in detail. The sees the applicability of abstract thermodynamic concepts and formulas to real situations.
