Given that thermodynamics books are not a rarity on the market, why would an additional one be useful? The answer is simple: at any level, thermodynamics is usually taught as a somewhat abstruse discipline where many students get lost in a maze of difficult concepts. However, thermodynamics is not as intricate a subject as most people feel. This book fills a niche between elementary textbooks and mathematically oriented treatises, and provides readers with a distinct approach to the subject. As indicated by the title, this book explains thermodynamic phenomena and concepts in physical terms before proceeding to focus on the requisite mathematical aspects. It focuses on the effects of pressure, temperature and chemical composition on thermodynamic properties and places emphasis on rapidly evolving fields such as amorphous materials, metastable phases, numerical simulations of microsystems and high-pressure thermodynamics. Topics like redox reactions are dealt with in less depth, due to the fact that there is already much literature available. Without requiring a background in quantum mechanics, this book also illustrates the main practical applications of statistical thermodynamics and gives a microscopic interpretation of temperature, pressure and entropy.

This book is perfect for undergraduate and graduate students who already have a basic knowledge of thermodynamics and who wish to truly *understand* the subject and put it in a broader physical perspective. The book is aimed not at theoretical physicists, but rather at practitioners with a variety of backgrounds from physics to biochemistry for whom thermodynamics is a tool which would be better used if better understood.

It has the very nice feature of not using the "historical approach" of starting with classical thermodynamics, but starts from QM and builds up to statistical mechanics and finally classical thermodynamics.

Abstract. The objectives of Physical Chemistry: Concepts and Theory are presented. The book is organized in accordance with the mathematics used: continuum for thermodynamics; discrete for quantum theory; statistics and probabilities for statistical mechanics; and the mathematics for potential-driven changes at short and long times for kinetics.

Author(s): T.K. Nguyen, Chemical and Materials Engineering, Cal Poly Pomona. This straightforward approach leads students to a thorough understanding of the basic principles of thermodynamics, which are then applied to a wide range of physical chemical systems.

The book also discusses the problems of non-ideal solutions and the concept of activity, and provides an introduction to the molecular basis of thermodynamics. Examining the physical basis of the structure of macromolecules-proteins, nucleic acids, and their complexes-using calorimetric techniques.

Many scientists working in biology are unfamiliar with the basics of thermodynamics and its role in determining molecular structures. Collection of Problems in Physical Chemistry provides illustrations and problems covering the field of physical chemistry.

The material has been arranged into illustrations that are solved and supplemented by problems, thus enabling readers to determine the extent to which they have mastered each subject.

Thermodynamics is built on a small number of axiomatic statements, propositions that we hold to be true on the basis of our experience with the physical world. Statistical and classical thermodynamics make use of different axiomatic statements; the axioms of statistical thermodynamics have their basis on statistical concepts; those of classical.

The first law of thermodynamics states that the heat is a form of energy and it is subjected to the principle of conservation of the energy. Energy can neither be created nor destroyed. It can be converted from one form to another.

The expression for the first law of thermodynamics can be expressed as, H = Δ E 1 + W. Basic principles of fluid mechanics and physical The principles of physical steady-flow thermodynamics are introduced in Chapter 3.

BASIC CONCEPTS OF THERMODYNAMICS Introduction Thermodynamics is a branch of science that deals with energy in all its forms and the laws governing the transformation of energy from one form to another.

Since, there are many forms of energy such as mechanical, thermal or heat, chemical, electrical, etc. (and at a depth that a book such as this could do no justice) in physical chemistry, biochemistry, and other dedicated courses. Students are made aware of the amazing generality of thermodynamics and are directed to other ﬁelds for such details as needed.

A theme that permeates the book is the molecular basis of Size: KB. Introductory Physical Chemistry. This book covers the following topics: Probability and Statistics, The Maxwell-Boltzmann Distribution, Collision Rates, Diffusion and Viscosity, Collision Theory of the Rate Constant, First Law of Thermodynamics, Thermochemistry, Ideal Gas Carnot Engines and Efficiency, The Second Law of Thermodynamics, The Clausius Inequality and the.

The physical basis of the second law is the observation that there are restrictions on the conversion between work and heat and on the flow of heat. One form of this law states this explicitly: Second law of thermodynamics (Clausius' Statement).

In book: The Physical Basis of theory and thermodynamics are important physical tools at this stage. The Physical Basis of Biochemistry is an introduction to the philosophy and practice of Author: Peter Bergethon.

Thermodynamics can be defined as the study of energy, energy transformations and its relation to matter. Any physical quantity can be characterized by dimensions. Intro and Basic Concepts 9 The actual pressure at a given File Size: KB.

Mathematical Foundations of Thermodynamics details the core concepts of the mathematical principles employed in thermodynamics. The book discusses the topics in a way that physical meanings are assigned to the theoretical terms.

The coverage of the text includes the mechanical systems and adiabatic processes; topological considerations; and equilibrium. This book presents the selection of various high level contributions involving thermodynamics. The book goes from the fundamentals up to several applications in different scientific fields.

The content of the book has been classified in six sections: Classical Thermodynamics, Statistical Thermodynamics, Property Prediction in Thermodynamics, Material and Products, Non Cited by: 6.

It depends. If you really want a fundamental understanding of physical chemistry, I'd skip the chemistry, initially, and get a sound understanding of the physics first. My vote for one of the best quantum mechanics books of all time is Principles.

this book: physical chemistry is based on a small number of fundamental quantities and general physical concepts, which once fully understood by a student, it should be quite easy to pass an examination in physical chemistry without the need to explicitly learn a lot of detailed equations.

Despite the fact that many years have elapsed since the first microcalorimetric measurements of an action potential were made, there is still among the research workers involved in the study of bioelectrogenesis a complete overlooking of the most fundamental principle governing any biological phenomenon at the molecular scale of dimension.

This is surprising, the more so. Download The Physical Basis Of Chemistry or read The Physical Basis Of Chemistry online books in PDF, EPUB and Mobi Format.

The First Law of Thermodynamics states that the energy of the universe is constant. The Second Law of Thermodynamics states that the entropy of the universe cannot decrease. If the temperature of a gas is increased while the volume remains constant, the energy of the gas is increased and there is an increase in energetic freedom or thermal.

Thermodynamics is a quantitative subject. It allows us to derive relations between the values of numerous physical quantities.

Some physical quantities, such as a mole fraction, are dimensionless; the value of one of these quantities is a pure number. Most quantities, however, are not dimensionless and their values must include one or more. The book also discusses the problems of non-ideal solutions and the concept of activity, and provides an introduction to the molecular basis of thermodynamics.

Over five editions, the views of teachers of the subject and their students have been incorporated.
