The seventh edition is updated with additional examples, homework problems, and illustrations to increase student understanding.
The text lays the groundwork for subsequent studies in fields such as fluid mechanics, heat transfer and statistical thermodynamics, and prepares students to effectively apply thermodynamics in the practice of engineering.
