" clear, well-written " (School Science Review, Issue 305, June 2002)" highly recommended " (Chemistry in Australia, April 2003, p 32-33)" this book will be invaluable to undergraduates taking thermodynamics for the first time." (Journal of Chemical Education, Vol 79, No 9, 2002, p 1075)"It is well written and clearly laid out. It will serve the student well." (School Science Review, Issue No 309, 2003)
Professor Abel is an Emeritus Professor at the University of Exeter.
Each book provides a concise account of the basic principles underlying a given subject, embodying an independent-learning philosophy and including worked examples.. Each stage in the development is well illustrated with examples. Thermodynamic quantities and relationships are introduced and developed in a coherent way, enabling students to apply thermodynamic analysis to chemical problems with confidence. The text aims to help students understand energy, its different forms and transformations, and the key role of entropy, as applied to c
Totoro said One Star. The book I got is totally different from my advisor's.
