Fundamentals of Thermodynamics 7th Editionby Claus Borgnakke and Richard E. Sonntag
Synopses & ReviewsPublisher Comments:Understand thermodynamics from an engineer’s perspective
Borgnakke and Sonntag’s Fundamentals of Thermodynamics has long stood as the text of choice for an introduction to the theory and application of thermodynamics. Written from an engineer’s point of view, this updated and revised Seventh Edition of the classic text offers a comprehensive and rigorous treatment of classical thermodynamics. With concise, applicationsoriented discussion of topics and selftest problems, the text encourages students to monitor their own progress and absorb the concepts step by step. Updated with additional examples, homework problems, and illustrations to increase student understanding, this new edition:
Preparing students to effectively apply thermodynamics in the practice of engineering, Fundamentals of Thermodynamics, Seventh Edition lays the groundwork for subsequent success in fields such as fluid mechanics, heat transfer, and statistical thermodynamics.
