Excerpt

HOW TO USE THIS BOOK

The Thermodynamics Problem Solver¨ can be an invaluable aid to students in thermodynamics as a supplement to their textbooks. The subject matter in the book is divided into 14 chapters beginning with work and heat, ideal gas processes, entropy and the second law of thermodynamics, irreversibility and availability, and thermodynamic relations, and extending through vapor power and refrigeration cycles, mixtures and solutions, and chemical reaction and equilibrium. Also included are problems in flow through nozzles and blade passages, as well as heat transfer and statistical thermodynamics. An extensive number of applications have been included, since these appear to be most troublesome to students.

HOW TO LEARN AND UNDERSTAND

A TOPIC THOROUGHLY

1. Refer to your class text and read the section pertaining to the topic. You should become acquainted with the principles discussed there. These principles, however, may not be clear to you at the time.

2. Locate the topic you are looking for by referring to the table of contents in the front of this book.

3. Turn to the page where the topic begins and review the problems under each topic, in the order given. For each topic, the problems are arranged in order of complexity, from the simplest to the more difficult. Some problems may appear similar to others, but each problem has been selected to illustrate a different point or solution method.

To learn and understand a topic thoroughly and retain its contents, it will be generally necessary for students to review the problems several times. Repeated review is essential to gaining experience in recognizing the principles that should be applied and for selecting the best solution technique.

HOW TO FIND A PARTICULAR PROBLEM

To locate one or more problems related to particular subject matter, refer to the index. In using the index, be certain to note that the numbers given refer to problem numbers, not to page numbers. This arrangement of the index is intended to facilitate finding a problem more rapidly, since two or more problems may appear on a page.

If a particular type of problem cannot be found readily, it is recommended that the student refer to the table of contents and then turn to the chapter that is applicable to the problem being sought. By scanning or glancing at the material that is boxed, it will generally be possible to find problems related to the one being sought, without consuming considerable time. After the problems have been located, the solutions can be reviewed and studied in detail. For the purpose of locating problems rapidly, students should acquaint themselves with the organization of the book as found in the table of contents.

In preparing for an exam, it is useful to find the topics to be covered on the exam from the table of contents and then review the problems under those topics several times. This should equip the student with what might be needed for the exam.
