Continuing in the tradition of Cengel/Boles: Thermodynamcis, 2/e, this lavishly illustrated text presents the key topics in thermodynamics and heat transfer, in a highly accessible student-friendly fashion, the flexibly organzied text can accommodate courses that spend any where from 1/3rd to 2/3rds or more of class time on thermodynamics and the rest on key heat transfer topics. The intuitive approach is supported by a wealth of physical explanations and analogies that draw parallels between the subject and the students' everyday experiences. Many of the 150 thoroughly worked out examples and almost 2,000 real-world problems, highlight applications from civil and electrical engineering. The approach and contents make this text an ideal resource for introduction to thermodynamics and/or thermal science courses intended for non-mechanical engineering majors.About the Author:
