Thermodynamics forms an essential part of any physical sciences degree yet it is so full of pitfalls and subtleties that many students fail to appreciate its elegance and power. In Thermal Physics the author lays great emphasis on understanding the fundamental ideas. He shows that the important thermodynamic results can be simply obtained from the fundamental relations without getting lost in a maze of partial differentials, just by reading the thermodynamic signposts. The text is amply illustrated and contains worked examples, including applications to physics, engineering, chemistry and biology. There are useful appendices and an extensive section of exercises (with answers) for the student. This book should be of interest to first year students of physics and applied physics at universities/polytechnics/colleges of FE; also of relevance to engineering and chemistry students.
