## Macroscopic and Statistical Thermodynamics

*Expanded English*

**Author**: Yi-Chen Cheng**Publisher:**World Scientific Publishing Company**ISBN:**9813101881**Category:**Science**Page:**456**View:**9952

This textbook addresses the key questions in both classical thermodynamics and statistical thermodynamics: Why are the thermodynamic properties of a nano-sized system different from those of a macroscopic system of the same substance? Why and how is entropy defined in thermodynamics, and how is the entropy change calculated when dissipative heat is involved? What is an ensemble and why is its theory so successful? Translated from a highly successful Chinese book, this expanded English edition contains many updated sections and several new ones. They include the introduction of the grand canonical ensemble, the grand partition function and its application to ideal quantum gases, a discussion of the mean field theory of the Ising model and the phenomenon of ferromagnetism, as well as a more detailed discussion of ideal quantum gases near T = 0, for both Fermi and Bose gases.

## Stoichiometry and Thermodynamics of Metallurgical Processes

**Author**: Y. K. Rao**Publisher:**CUP Archive**ISBN:**9780521258562**Category:**Science**Page:**957**View:**6272

This textbook provides a thorough and comprehensive introduction to stoichiometry and thermodynamics with special emphasis on applications to metallurgical processes. The author's approach is to introduce students early on to the fundamentals of the physical chemistry and thermodynamics of metallurgical processes and then gradually expand the treatment into progressively more advanced areas. Topics covered include the laws of thermodynamics, material and energy balances, gasification and combustion of fuels, the iron blast furnace, direct reduction reactors, nonferrous smelters, fluidized-bed roasters, the theory of solutions, chemical equilibrium, electrochemistry. Also included are over 150 worked examples and 450 exercises, many with solutions. The examples and exercises range from straightforward tests of theory to complex analyses of real processes. Every chapter is provided with a full and up-to-date set of references.

## Fundamentals of Classical and Statistical Thermodynamics

**Author**: Bimalendu N. Roy**Publisher:**John Wiley & Sons**ISBN:**9780470843130**Category:**Science**Page:**743**View:**5529

"Fundamentals of Classical and Statistical Thermodynamics" provides a comprehensive introduction to this pivotal subject. Starting from basics, the book begins with a thorough introduction to the field, providing concise definitions and an overview of thermodynamics and its applications. The book discusses the fundamentals of classical equilibrium thermodynamics, thermal physics, kinetic theory and statistical mechanics. This comprehensive coverage enables the reader to understand not only the interrelationships between these subjects but also encourages an ability to interpret the thermodynamic quantities and laws in terms of statistical mechanics. Beginning with a detailed discussion of the four laws of thermodynamics the text introduces more advanced topics in later chapters, such as applications of the first and second laws, free energy and chemical equilibria, and equilibrium statististical mechanics and applications. Uniquely, this text includes a large number of worked examples throughout, with a range of problems at the end of each chapter and their solutions all at the end of the book. The most fundamental concepts of the subject are emphasised throughout and new derivations of many of the standard formulae have been developed to avoid excessive mathematical rigour. "Fundamentals of Classical and Statistical Thermodynamics: " Provides a comprehensive introduction to the field, covering both classical and statistical thermodynamics. Includes numerous worked examples and end of chapter problems with answers provided at the back of the book. Covers the essentials of the subject combined with cutting-edge material such as non-linear chemical physics, critical phenomena and transport theory. Ensures the necessary mathematics are limited to simple derivatives and integrals. Suitable for all undergraduate students of physics, chemistry, materials science and engineering.
