For the past three decades, Fundamentals of Thermodynamics has been the leading book in the field. Now updated and enhanced with numerous worked examples, problems, and illustrations, as well as a rich selection of Web-based learning resources, the new Seventh Edition continues to present a comprehensive and rigorous treatment of classical thermodynamics, while retaining an engineering perspective. It prepares the reader to effectively apply concepts in engineering practice.
