This book presents to the student the logical foundations and interrelationships of the theory of thermodynamics and teaches the student the methods by which the theoretical methods may be applied to
practical problems. The book is devoted to the phenomenological or classical approach to thermodynamics and does not deal with statistical thermodynamics. The student is introduced to the application of the theory of
thermodynamics to problems encountered by the chemist, the biologist, and the geologist. Mathematical tools and computational techniques are described in some detail. A major feature of the book is the clarity of its
logical structure. A solutions manual is available to qualified instructors.
