By: Cengel, Yunus A [autor]
Publisher: Boston : McGraw-Hill Higher Education, ©2008Edition: 6th edDescription: xxxi, 1018 páginas : ilustraciones, cuadros, gráficos ; 27 cmContent type: texto Media type: no mediado Carrier type: volumenISBN: 9780071257718Subject(s): Termodinámica | Termodinámica -- Relaciones, característicasDDC classification: 536.7
Contents:
Introduction and basic concepts. -- Energy, energy transfer, and general energy analysis. -- Properties of pure substances. -- Energy analysis of closed systems. -- Mass and energy analysis of control volumes. -- The second law of thermodynamics. -- Entropy. -- Exergy: a measure of work potential. -- Gas power cycles. -- Vapor and combined power cycles. -- Refrigeration cycles. -- Thermodynamics property relations. -- Gas mixtures. -- Gas-vapor mixtures and air-conditioning. -- Chemical and phase equilibrium. -- Compressible flow. -- Property tables and charts.
Summary: Thermodynamics is an exciting and fascinating subject that deals with energy, which is essential for sustenance of life, and thermodynamics has long been an essential part of engineering curricula all over the world. It has a broad application area ranging from microscopic organism to common household appliances, transportation vehicles, power generation systems, and even philosophy. This introductory book contains sufficient material for two sequential courses in thermodynamics. Students are assumed to have an adequate background in calculus and physics.

Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

<p>The sixth edition of Thermodynamics: An Engineering Approach moves students toward a clear understanding and a firm grasp of the basic principles of thermodynamics.</p> <p>This SI edition title communicates directly with tomorrow's engineers in a simple yet precise manner that encourages creative thinking - and the writing style appeals to students and lecturers alike.</p> <p> For instructors : This title is now accompanied by ARIS - McGraw-Hill's powerful and flexible course management system. Easy to use, it contains over 700 new questions and problems, animations and the ability to assign and grade text-specific homework.</p> For students : Free resource DVD included containing: <p>* Limited Academic Version of EES (Engineering Equation Solver) software with scripted solutions to selected text problems</p> <p>* Physical experiments in thermodynamics with videos and complete write-ups of the experiments, as well as actual data</p> <p>* Interactive Thermodynamics Tutorial to reinforce student learning of thermodynamics concepts.</p> <p>Cengel also offers Hands On Mechanics . This media product provides detailed instructions on to build proven, classroom tested, effective 3-D teaching tools using materials found in any lab or local hardware store.</p>
