Thermodynamics For Dummies tracks to a typical thermodynamics course offered at the undergraduate level and assists readers in understanding the fundamental concepts of the subject and helps to develop problem-solving skills through practice in solving energy-related problems. Specific coverage includes: General balance principle (open systems, closed systems, rate balances, increment balances) Mass balances (specific volume, system mass, mass-flow rate) Zeroth law (thermodynamic equilibrium and temperature) First-law balances (internal energy, enthalpy) Second-law balances (availability, entropy) Cycles (Rankine, Brayton, vapor-compression) Non-reacting mixtures of ideal gases Reacting mixtures (mass balances, energy balances, heating values, standardized enthalpy)
