This Is An Introductory Book Which Explains The Foundations Of The Subject And Its Application. It Is Intended Primarily For Graduate Students But May Provide Useful Information And Reading To Science And Engineering Students At All Levels. It Assumes That Readers Have Knowledge Of Basic Thermodynamics And Quantum Mechanics. With This, The Theory Has Been Developed In A Simple, Logical And Understandable Way. Some Applications Of Statistical Thermodynamics Have Been Described In Detail With Illustrative Solved Examples.There Are Two Basic Approaches In Statistical Mechanics; One Based On The Study Of Independent Particles In An Isolated System And The Other Based On The Concept Of Ensembles. In This Book Attempt Has Been Made To Take Advantage Of Both Approaches. While The Fundamental Concepts Have Been Developed By First Approach, Concept Of Ensembles Have Been Included To Bring Out The Importance Of This Concept In The Application Of Statistical Thermodynamics To Chemical Systems Where Interparticle Interactions Become Important.Part I Of The Book Deals With The Background Concepts, Fundamentals In Mathematics, Classical Mechanics, Quantum Mechanics And Thermodynamics Which Are Essential For Statistical Mechanics. Part Ii Covers Formalism Of Statistical Mechanism And Its Relation To Thermodynamics As Well As The Statistical Mechanics Of Ensembles, Quantum Statistics And Fluctuations. Part Iii Includes Chapters On The Applications Of The Formalism To Real Laboratory Chemical Systems. In This Part Additions Such As Imperfect Gases, Equilibrium Isotope And Kinetic Isotope Effects And Reactions At The Surfaces Have Been Made, In This Edition. Part Iv Is Also An Addition Which Covers Quantum Systems Such As Ideal Fermi Gas (Free Electrons In Metals), Photon Gas And Ideal Bose Gas (Helium Gas).

Fundamentals of Classical and Statistical Thermodynamics

Category: Science

Fundamentals of Classical and Statistical Thermodynamics provides a comprehensive introduction to this pivotal subject. Starting from basics, the book begins with a thorough introduction to the field, providing concise definitions and an overview of thermodynamics and its applications. The book discusses the fundamentals of classical equilibrium thermodynamics, thermal physics, kinetic theory and statistical mechanics. This comprehensive coverage enables the reader to understand not only the interrelationships between these subjects but also encourages an ability to interpret the thermodynamic quantities and laws in terms of statistical mechanics. Beginning with a detailed discussion of the four laws of thermodynamics the text introduces more advanced topics in later chapters, such as applications of the first and second laws, free energy and chemical equilibria, and equilibrium statististical mechanics and applications. Uniquely, this text includes a large number of worked examples throughout, with a range of problems at the end of each chapter and their solutions all at the end of the book. The most fundamental concepts of the subject are emphasised throughout and new derivations of many of the standard formulae have been developed to avoid excessive mathematical rigour. Fundamentals of Classical and Statistical Thermodynamics: * Provides a comprehensive introduction to the field, covering both classical and statistical thermodynamics. * Includes numerous worked examples and end of chapter problems with answers provided at the back of the book. * Covers the essentials of the subject combined with cutting-edge material such as non-linear chemical physics, critical phenomena and transport theory. * Ensures the necessary mathematics are limited to simple derivatives and integrals. Suitable for all undergraduate students of physics, chemistry, materials science and engineering. Will also be an ideal reference book for those working within science and engineering.

Die rationelle Energieverwendung im Bereich wärmetechnischer Systeme hat im mittel europäischen Raum einen hohen Stellenwert, da bei der überwiegenden Anzahl der Haus halte und Gewerbebetriebe der Energieverbrauch zur Wärmeerzeugung den größten An teil am Gesamtenergieverbrauch hat. Das Ziel des vorliegenden Bandes ist es, dem Leser die Vorgehensweise 'zur Beurteilung wärmetechnischer Systeme und energiesparender Maßnahmen zu vermitteln. Schwerpunktmäßig werden die Heiz- und Raumlufttechnik im Umfeld des Menschen behandelt, während das Gebiet der Prozeßwärme für die indu strielle Anwendung aus Gründen des Umfanges nur ansatzweise erörtert werden konnte. Der Anspruch dieses Buches liegt auf einer Ebene, welche bewußt nicht die Einzellösung hervorhebt, da sich das Optimum eines Gesamtsystems noch längst nicht einstellen muß, wenn die Teilsysteme optimiert sind. Das Verständnis der Verzahntheit des vorliegenden Gebietes mit anderen Fachgebieten ist deshalb eine wesentliche Voraussetzung für ko ordinierte Maßnahmen zur rationellen Energieverwendung. Diesem Umstand wird durch zahlreiche qualitative Systembetrachtungen und Zahlenbeispiele Rechnung getragen. Im ersten Abschnitt werden die speziellen Grundlagen der Heiz- und Raumlufttechnik be handelt. Dazu zählen Kenntnisse über technische Funktionsabläufe und die Behaglich keitsanforderungen des Menschen, zu deren Aufrechterhaltung diese Anlagen gebaut werden. Anlagentechnische Maßnahmen zur Energieeinsparung müssen sich immer an der Erfüllung der Behaglichkeitsanforderungen messen lassen. Weiterhin gehört es auch zu einer wirkungsvollen Energieberatung, Maßnahmen an gebäudetechnischen Anlagen als Teilmaßnahme am Gesamtsystem Gebäude zu verstehen, weil durch den Umfang der Systemverbesserung (energetisch-ökonomisch) letztlich die Rangfolge der durchzuführen den Maßnahmen bestimmt wird.

Mathematical Modeling I

Kinetics, Thermodynamics and Statistical Mechanics

Author: Troy L. Story

Publisher: iUniverse

ISBN: 1450212344

Category: Mathematics

Page: 300

View: 1846

Mathematical Modeling I: kinetics, thermodynamics and statistical mechanics (MMI) features traditional topics in physical chemistry (chemical physics), but is distinguished by problem solving techniques which emphasize the assignment of mathematical models to describe physical phenomena. MMI is a starting point to unify theoretical and empirical perceptions of the following topics: Kinetics, distributions and collisions The first law of thermodynamics The second law of thermodynamics The third law of thermodynamics Statistical mechanics MMI can be used as a text on the above topics in the first semester part of a two-semester undergraduate course in physical chemistry. Since many quantum ideas are introduced in the study of kinetics, distributions, collisions, and statistical mechanics, MMI serves as a logical foundation for the study of quantum mechanics and spectroscopy in the second volume, Mathematical Modeling II: quantum mechanics and spectroscopy (to appear in the fall of 2010)."

Macroscopic and Statistical Thermodynamics

Page: 440

"This textbook addresses the key questions in both classical thermodynamics and statistical thermodynamics: Why are the thermodynamic properties of a nano-sized system different from those of a macroscopic system of the same substance? Why and how is entropy defined in thermodynamics, and how is the entropy change calculated when dissipative heat is involved? What is an ensemble and why is its theory so successful?" "Translated from a highly successful Chinese book, this expanded English edition containsmany updated sections and several new ones. They include the introduction of the grand canonical ensemble, the grand partition function and its application to ideal quantum gases, a discussion of the mean field theory of the Ising model and the phenomenon of ferromagnetism, as well as a more detailed discussion of ideal quantum gases near T = 0, for both Fermi and Bose gases."--BOOK JACKET.
