Problems in Thermodynamics and Statistical Physics

Author: Peter T. Landsberg
Publisher: Courier Corporation
ISBN: 9780486795041
Release Date: 2014-06-10
Genre: Science

Well respected and widely used, this volume presents problems and full solutions related to a wide range of topics in thermodynamics, statistical physics, and statistical mechanics. The text is intended for instructors, undergraduates, and graduate students of mathematics, physics, chemistry, and engineering. Twenty-eight chapters, each prepared by an expert, proceed from simpler to more difficult subjects. Similarly, the early chapters are easier than the later ones, making the book ideal for independent study. Subjects begin with the laws of thermodynamics and statistical theory of information and of ensembles, advancing to the ideal classical gases of polyatomic molecules, non-electrolyte liquids and solutions, and surfaces. Subsequent chapters explore imperfect classical and quantum gas, phase transitions, cooperative phenomena, Green function methods, the plasma, transport in gases and metals, Nyquist's theorem and its generalizations, stochastic methods, and many other topics.

Thermodynamik

Author: Hans Dieter Baehr
Publisher: Springer-Verlag
ISBN: 9783662495681
Release Date: 2016-11-11
Genre: Science

Dieses etablierte Lehrbuch der Technischen Thermodynamik liegt, nach grundlegender Überarbeitung, in der 16. Auflage vor. Es bietet eine gründliche Einführung in die Thermodynamik und ihre technischen Anwendungen in der Energie- und Verfahrenstechnik. Der Schwerpunkt dieses Lehrbuchs liegt in der verständlichen Darstellung der durch den ersten und zweiten Hauptsatz der Thermodynamik gegebenen Grundlagen. Die hierauf aufbauenden Energie- und Entropiebilanzgleichungen ermöglichen die energetische und exergetische Analyse von Prozessen und Zustandsänderungen. Daher sind Energie und Entropie zentrale Begriffe der Thermodynamik, die in den ersten Kapiteln des Buches ausführlich eingeführt werden. In einem zweiten Schwerpunkt des Lehrbuchs werden die Beziehungen, welche die Energie- und Entropiewerte aus messbaren Zustandsgrößen wie Druck und Temperatur zugänglich machen, eingehend erläutert. Ein dritter Schwerpunkt ist den thermodynamischen Aspekten wichtiger energie- und verfahrenstechnischer Anwendungen gewidmet. Praxisnah werden Strömungsprozesse, thermische Stofftrennverfahren, Verbrennungsprozesse und Verbrennungskraftanlagen wie z.B. Gasturbinenanlagen, Brennstoffzellen, thermische Kraftwerke, Kälteanlagen und Wärmepumpen behandelt.
