Summary Designed by two MIT professors, this authoritative text transcends the limitations and ambiguities of traditional treatments to develop a deep understanding of the fundamentals of thermodynamics and its energy-related applications. Basic concepts and applications are discussed in complete detail, with attention to generality, rigorous definitions, and logical consistency. More than 300 solved problems span a wide range of realistic energy systems and processes
