Description

This book presents a completely new thermodynamic perspective, one that no longer relies upon either entropy, or the second law. Herein, we clearly demonstrate that although empirical data can disprove a given theory, it certainly does not necessarily prove any one theory, i.e. there is often more than one theory that can explain a given set of empirically known results. "Changing our perspective Part 1: A new thermodynamics" is a continuation of the revolutionary ideas presented by this author, in his several controversial peer reviewed papers. Importantly, a series of simple arguments are strung together enlightening the reader to the possibility that traditional thermodynamics has complicated what should have been, and certainly will become a simple constructive science that the majority can actually envision, comprehend, and then explain. This is not just a tweaking of the science as is done by countless other texts. It is a radical overhaul providing new insights into latent heat, lost work, kinetic theory, heat capacity, Joule's experiment, thermal radiation, Henry's law and the Clausius-Clapeyron equation. And the list just scratches the surface. Accordingly, it will up to you to decide whether you prefer the overly complex traditional conceptualizations, or a simple eloquent science. I.e. you will be asked to apply the principles of Occam's razor. All in all, this book is very insightful; bringing a whole new perspective that can be understood by most who have a scientific and/or engineering background. Importantly, this book will shock you, making you question your indoctrination in a science that you previously wrongfully believed to be mature and unrelenting.show more
