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

This respected text deals with large-scale, easily known thermal phenomena and then proceeds to small-scale, less accessible phenomena. The wide range of used in Dittman and Zemansky’s text simultaneously challenges students who have completed a course in impartial differential 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 solutions of problems related to the formulas. Actual thermodynamic experiments are explained in detail. The sees the applicability of thermodynamic concepts and formulas to real situations.
