A revised edition of the well-received thermodynamics text, this work retains the thorough coverage and excellent organization that made the first edition so popular. Now incorporates industrially relevant microcomputer programs, with which readers can perform sophisticated thermodynamic calculations, including calculations of the type they will encounter in the lab and in industry. Also provides a unified treatment of phase equilibria. Emphasis is on analysis and prediction of liquid-liquid and vapor-liquid equilibria, solubility of gases and solids in liquids, solubility of liquids and solids in gases and supercritical fluids, freezing point depressions and osmotic equilibria, as well as traditional vapor-liquid and chemical reaction equilibria. Contains many new illustrations and exercises.

A More Accessible Approach to Thermodynamics In this third edition, you'll find a modern approach to applied thermodynamics. The material is presented in sufficient detail to provide a solid understanding of the principles of thermodynamics and its classical applications. Also included are the applications of chemical engineering thermodynamics to issues such as the distribution of chemicals in the environment, safety, polymers, and solid-state-processing. To make thermodynamics more accessible, several helpful features are included. Important concepts are emphasized in marginal notes throughout each chapter. Illustrations have also been added to demonstrate the use of these concepts and to provide a better understanding of the material. Boxes are used to highlight equations so that students can easily identify the end results of analyses. You can also visit the text's web site to download additional problem sets, computer programs to solve thermodynamic and phase behavior problems, and Mathcad(r) worksheets used for problem solving.About the Author:
