Have you ever had a question that keeps persisting and for which you cannot find a clear answer? Is the question seemingly so "simple" that the problem is glossed over in most resources, or skipped entirely? CRC Press/Taylor and Francis is pleased to introduce Commonly Asked Questions in Thermodynamics, the first in a new series of books that address the questions that frequently arise in today's major scientific and technical disciplines. Designed for a wide audience, from students and researchers to practicing professionals in related areas, the books are organized in a user friendly Question & Answer format. Presented questions become increasingly specific throughout the book, with clear and concise answers, as well as illustrations, diagrams, and tables are incorporated wherever helpful. Thermodynamics is a core discipline associated with the theoretical principles and practical applications underlying almost every area of science, from nanoscale biochemical engineering to astrophysics. Highlighting chemical thermodynamics in particular, this book is written in an easy-to-understand style and provides a wealth of fundamental information, simple illustrations, and extensive references for further research and collection of specific data. Designed for an audience that ranges from undergraduate students to scientists and engineers at the forefront of research, this indispensible guide presents clear explanations for topics with wide applicability. It reflects the fact that, very often, the most common questions are also the most profound.

Review quote

This is an extremely useful book for anybody teaching thermodynamics. -Jan V. Sengers, Distinguished University Research Professor, Institute for Physical Science and Technology, University of Maryland This is an interesting book ... should be in every engineering library [and] listed as a reference text in all engineering thermodynamics courses. A wide range of topics are covered starting with simple questions and gradually advancing to more complex questions. The answers are clear and easy to follow. The last chapter is particularly useful as a guide to where to find property values, how to use those values and how to calculate thermodynamic and transport properties. -Ken Marsh, University of Canterbury
