This book aims to help readers develop a practical, systems-based understanding of thermodynamics. Organized around system tapes, it introduces the second law of thermodynamics at the outset, and then integrates the first and second laws of thermodynamics in the study of all systems throughout the book. In presenting new topics, the author moves from the qualitative, concrete and familiar to the quantitative, and leads the student to see the real-world value of the material.
