Introduction to Molecular Thermodynamics

Introduction to Molecular Thermodynamics Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

I wish I had learned thermodynamics this way That's what the authors hear all the time from instructors using Introduction to Molecular Thermodynamics. Starting with just a few basic principles of probability and the distribution of energy, the book takes students (and faculty ) on an adventure into the inner workings of the molecular world like no other. Made to fit into a standard second-semester of a traditional first-year chemistry course, or as a supplement for more advanced learners, the book takes the reader from probability to Gibbs energy and beyond, following a logical step-by-step progression of ideas, each just a slight expansion of the previous. Filled with examples ranging from casinos to lasers, from the high energy bonds of ATP to endangered coral reefs, Introduction to Molecular Thermodynamics hits the mark for students and faculty alike who have an interest in understanding the world around them in molecular terms. ????????????????

Book News Annotation:

Chemists Hanson and Green (both St. Olaf College, Minnesota) offer to other instructors the material they use in a first--and in most cases only--undergraduate course in thermodynamics. They use simple elements of probability to explain the essentials of thermodynamics, thus bypassing much of the mathematics that more deliberately foundational courses introduce. Answers to selected problems are included. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
