Practical Chemical Thermodynamics for Geoscientists
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungPractical Chemical Thermodynamics for Geoscientists covers classical chemical thermodynamics and focuses on applications to practical problems in the geosciences, environmental sciences, and planetary sciences. This book will provide a strong theoretical foundation for students while also proving beneficial for earth and planetary scientists seeking a review of thermodynamic principles and their application to a specific problem.

PortraitBy Bruce Fegley, and Rose Osborne
Pressestimmen"Bruce Fegley has scripted a comprehensive text in classical phenomenological thermodynamics.The greatest strength of this volume is its attention to the needs of the student. I hope its greatest value will be in drawing a new generation to apply classical thermodynamics in the geosciences with intellectual rigor."--Meteoritics & Planetary Science, 48, 2013 "This book covers thermodynamics from a different angle. Fegley.puts a much stronger emphasis on the effects of pressure or the equilibrium between materials as they occur in the geological or planetary sciences.this focus is demonstrated in the examples and problems discussed in each of the 12 chapters."--CHOICE April 2013
