As was the case with the first edition, the major focus of the second edition of this book is still on engineering students taking their first course in thermodynamics. Therefore, the book focuses on thermodynamics from the standpoint of balances of mass, energy, availability and entropy. This methodology is reinforced throughout the book and therefore the student will become comfortable with using these balances as tools to solve an array of problems. In addition to balances, the book emphasizes process sketches (primarily T-v and T-s diagrams) to display process paths. Careful attention is paid to units both in the layout of the tables of unit conversions and in all computations.
