description: ( ? )

Introduction to Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics, 6/e, presents comprehensive coverage of the subject of thermodynamics from a chemical engineering viewpoint. The text provides a thorough exposition of the principles of thermodynamics and details their application to chemical processes. The chapters are written in a clear, logically organized manner, and contain an abundance of realistic problems, examples, and illustrations to help students understand complex concepts. New ideas, terms, and symbols constantly challenge the readers to think and encourage them to apply this fundamental body of knowledge to the solution of practical problems. The comprehensive nature of this book makes it a useful reference both in graduate courses and for professional practice. The sixth edition continues to be an excellent tool for teaching the subject of chemical engineering thermodynamics to undergraduate students.

The purpose of this text is to present thermodynamics from a chemical-engineering viewpoint. Although the laws of thermodynamics are universal, the subject is most effectively taught in the context of the discipline of student commitment. This is the justification for a separate text for chemical engineers, just as it has been for the previous five editions, which have been in print for more than 50 years.

In writing this text, we have sought to maintain the rigor characteristic of sound thermodynamic analysis, while at the same time providing a treatment that may be understood by the average undergraduate. Much is included of an introductory nature, but development is carried far enough to allow application to significant problems in chemical-engineering practice.

The book is comprehensive enough to make it a useful reference both in graduate courses and for professional practice. However, length considerations make necessary a prudent selectivity. Thus, we have not been able to include certain topics worthy of attention, but of a specialized nature. These include applications to polymers, electrolytes, and biomaterials.
