This book is part of the Industrial Equipment for Chemical Engineering Set. Throughout these concise and easy-to-use books, the author uses his vast practical experience and precise knowledge of global research to present an in-depth study of a variety of aspects within the field of chemical engineering.
In this volume, the author provides a general introduction to the study of thermodynamics. Across the five chapters, he presents the different concepts involved in the study of energy, including systems, states, energy, laws and their associated theorems.
By studying the equations of state and solutions, activity coefficients to the laws governing the transfer of material and the calculation of equilibriums, the reader will gain a wide understanding of the physics of energy.
The author also provides methods needed for understanding the machinery used in applied thermodynamics in the hope of encouraging students and engineers to build the programs they need themselves.
The chapters are complemented with appendices which provide additional information as well as any associated references.
1. A Logical Presentation of Thermodynamics.
2. Equations of State and Fugacities.
3. Solution Activity Coefficients.
4. Laws Governing the Transfer of Material and Heat Between Two Immiscible Fluids’ Electrolytes and their Diffusion.
5. Calculation of the Equilibrium Between Two Fluids.
Jean-Paul Duroudier is an engineer from Ecole centrale de Paris, France. He has devoted his professional life to the study of materials in chemical engineering
