totally worth to read, especially when you have a not so good lecturer.. this book (and the solution manual as well) gives a detailed step to solve a problem related to thermodynamics..

well, it's boring n thick, but it's definitely a good textbook

This is the one of the best book that i have read on thermodynamics,
I have download this ebook and read from

الطاقة في هذا الكون لاتفنى ولا يمكن استحداثها من العدم -بمشيئة الله- بكل تأكيد. لكن! سؤال هنا يكمن في أنه هل يوجد طاقات من على هذه الأرض والكون غير ما تعلمناه؟ بحيث أصبح عصرنا هو عصر الطاقات المتجدّدة؟ هل انتهى كل شيء حتى هذه اللحظة الّتي تنظر فيها ساعتك؟

اختار لنا سبحانه الأرض من بين بلايين الكواكب داخل مليارات من الجرات لملاءمتها، لتوفر أسباب العيش فيها. قال تعالى: { هو الّذي جعل لكم الأرض ذلولا } . فسبحانه له في خلقه شؤون!.

لو عرّض جسم الإنسان إلى ضغط التفريغ الموجود في الكون من دون أن يرتدي ال

If you are an engineer , you NEED TO READ THIS BOOK.

It gives you the basics of Thermodynamics, that ALL GOOD ENGINEER need to know.


Need to have this on your shelf

No explanation included in the book.

Totally worth it ! Very well explained examples.. The way the book represents new subjects by illustrations and life-related text is a plus
Mariana Espinal
It was very boring and long... but as an engineer you learn to make the most of it. I bought another thermodyanmics book to use as a supplement to this one... it was much better written... had better examples and the format just helped aid memorization.

I had the international copy so it was black and white! I'm sure in color it would be better!

This is probably the best book in applied thermodynamics. I originaly encountered these books while I was an engineering undergraduate and studying them gave me some solid foundations in thermodynamics.
The books are very easy to read so not much previous experience in physics is required to understand the new concepts.

THE BEST BOOK EVERY ON THERMODYNAMICS FOR ENGINEERS.

I LOVE THIS BOOK SO MUCH!

Excellent book for beginners (high school seniors, college freshmen/sophomores). There is no in-depth explanation of concepts, but this is exactly what's needed for a basic level.

Recommends it for: Engineering students
Great book with beautiful illustrations, thorough explanations and plenty of exercises to boost understanding. Totally recommended for engineering students.

Thermodynamics is the study of energy, which is the ability to change or effect change. It gave new insight into spiral energy and spiral lifeforms

I don't know if it's just this book and my teacher's lack if inspiration but after this semester I've established that I hate thermodynamics.
Heidie Loudermilk
Wow this is my third time reading this thing!

I wish it had more IP units this book is about 95% metric which I haven't used since college.

Good stuff. Our teacher is having us summarize every paragraph. Surprising, isn't it, that I'm doing best in this class. ;)

Recommends it for: anyone interested in learning about Heat and it's dynamics.
Great book about Heat. If anyone wants me to calculate the dynamics of heat on beams, I am your man.

great book for thermal engineering to get through the basics
