Engineering and Chemical Thermodynamics Second Edition by Milo D. Koretsky.
Chemical engineers face the challenge of learning the difficult concept and application of entropy and the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics. By following a visual approach and offering qualitative discussions of the role of molecular interactions, Koretsky helps them understand and visualize thermodynamics.
This textbook has been specically designed to accommodate students with dierent learning styles by providing avenues for students with each style and, thereby, reducing the mismatches between its presentation of content and a student’s learning style.
The objective is to create an eective text that enables students to access new concepts, For example, each chapter contains learning objectives at the beginning and a summary at the end.
Such a presentation creates an eective environment for global learners (who should read the summary before embarking on the details in a chapter).
Clear conceptual development, worked-out examples and numerous end-of-chapter problems promote deep learning of thermodynamics and teach students how to apply thermodynamics to real-world,
Expanded coverage includes biological content and examples, the Equation of State approach for both liquid and vapor phases in VLE, and the practical side of the 2nd Law.
On the other hand, to aid the sequential learner, the chapter is developed in a logical manner, with concepts constructed step by step based on previous material.
students practicing surface learning tend to memorize facts, carry out procedures algorithmically, nd it dicult to make sense of new ideas, and end up seeing little value in a thermodynamics course.
While it is reinforced throughout the text, promotion of deep learning is most signicantly inuenced by what a student is expected to do. End-of-chapter problems have been constructed to cultivate a
deep understanding of the material.
Instead of merely nding the right equation to “plug and chug,” the student is asked to search for connections and patterns in the material, understand the physical meaning of the equations, and creatively apply the fundamental principles that have been covered to entirely new problems.
The belief is that only through this deep learning is a student able to synthesize information from the university classroom and creatively apply it to new problems in the eld.
Engineering and Chemical Thermodynamics, 2e helps students construct new knowledge on a solid conceptual foundation.
