This book brings thermodynamics to life through a simple text supported by examples and case studies. The subject matter in this book is based on a minimum number of laws, and postulates. It is intended for students, practicing engineers, and scientists. The first eight chapters contribute to the basic theories of thermodynamics.
The first chapter on Introduction provides a background of the subject that is a fundamental part of science and technology, and serves an essential role in our life and society. The following chapters provide principles or laws in evaluation of energy conversion and applications of these theories. Property tables and diagrams for water and R134a are included in the book.
These thermodynamic properties can determine easily with an Internet-based program that is available from the author's website for the book. Besides the properties of the substances just mentioned, the website can provide the psychrometric chart. The SI system has been used throughout the book.
