Based on the exceptionally successful first edition, the second edition of Cengel / Boles provides the students with the fundamentals of thermodynamics in an intuitive way. The material is presented to Sophomore in a clear and fair manner. The text is self-educational and therefore frees the instructor to use lesson time more productively. The traditional classic approach is used everywhere.
Lively presentation, permanently illustrated in two colors, with advanced software that allows students to solve design problems and hear “what if”. Available in 5.25 or 3.5 DOS versions. Over 250 new issues, new review issues and new computer, design, essay issues. Characterizes thermodynamic aspects of biological systems. New topics that are important for new developments: two-stroke engines and turbofans. The text combines the concepts of the second law with daily life, drawing parallels between the ostensibly abstract concepts. New in this issue: Over 250 new issues have been added.
This leads to a total number of chapter problems of more than 2,000. Particular efforts are being made to address some safety-related issues in order to raise awareness of safety in the field. At the end of each chapter, a new REVIEW PROBLEMS section will be added, containing about 300 issues to allow teachers to assign more comprehensive problems that are not consistent with a particular section of a chapter. At the end of each chapter, a new section on COMPUTER, DESIGN, AND ASSAY PROBLEMS with over 120 issues is added to further emphasize design, creativity, and computer use in engineering education. As the text progresses, a historical perspective is added.
Approximately the evolution of refrigerants in Chapter 10. The new section titled SECOND LAW ASPECTS OF DAILY LIFE is added in Chapter 7 to draw parallels between the abstract concepts that are based on the second law, availability, irreversibility, and second-order efficiency and the ordinary occurrences in ordinary life. The software was pompously expanded and expanded to allow students to solve design problems and ask “what if” questions.
