Very good book for doing a casual walk-through of the first and second law thermodynamics. The restating of Feynman's example for first law of thermodynamics was just enjoyable. The Carnot engine discussion was very enjoyable and very good.

Jul 06, David Hildebrand rated it really liked it. A nifty little book which is a good companion to a more rigorous treatment. His style is very Feynmanesque and lucid. The cost of this approach is that some subjects appear out of nowhere ideal gas internal energy depends solely on temperature during his discussion on cycles and he is fast and loose philosophically inexact differentials.

## Thermodynamics of Crystals - Duane C. Wallace - Google книги

Thermodynamics was never more effortless. Have dreaded the subject throughout the college life. In simple examples and stories, basic concepts of TD are clarified and made easy to recollect. This book tries to give you an intuitive primer about thermodynamics with minimal use of equations. It can be a good way to start reading about thermodynamics before you jump into textbooks. It covers the usual topics that come under thermodynamics.

Example, the first and the second law of thermodynamics, concept of reversibility, heat engine cycles, power plants etc. While the intuition this book provided on the subject was useful, I found two shortcomings in this book. I had to spend a lot of time googling to fill in the gaps since the details can be sparse at times.

Overall, an average read even though I found it useful before I kick off reading the same subject through resnick and halliday next! Mar 31, Ryan Pangilinan rated it really liked it.

A relatively easy to read book intended to develop one's intuition on the study of thermodynamics. Thermodynamics is by no means an easy subject and this book is not meant to be a replacement for a textbook in anyway. It even states that in the beginning of the book and it is evident as it is very much text heavy, trying to describe and explain rather than display much arithmatic.

It is meant to supplement the study alongside a much more rigorous text. I found it very helpful, yet I will certain A relatively easy to read book intended to develop one's intuition on the study of thermodynamics.

I found it very helpful, yet I will certainly have to revisit this and other texts to better develop my understanding of the subject. Dec 05, Roberto Rigolin F Lopes rated it really liked it. We are in , Hendrick is trying to show thermodynamics from different angles using mundane analogies so students can relate to say before an university course.

He starts explaining conservation of energy first law using a "ridiculous" story cooked up by Feynman.
