Introduction to Thermodynamics, Classical and Statistical by Richard E. Sonntag

Presents a comprehensive and rigorous treatment of thermodynamics while retaining an engineering perspective and, in so doing, provides a resource with considerable flexibility for the inclusion of material on thermodynamics. Updated for this Third Edition, it reflects an increased emphasis on environmental issues and a recognition of the steadily growing use of computers in the study of thermodynamics and solution of thermodynamic problems. Contains numerous examples, as well as problems at the end of each chapter that are carefully sequenced to reflect the subject matter.

Mod-01 Lec-20 Classical statistical mechanics: Introduction

Thermodynamics is the branch of physics that deals with heat and temperature , and their relation to energy , work , radiation , and properties of matter. The behavior of these quantities is governed by the four laws of thermodynamics which convey a quantitative description using measurable macroscopic physical quantities , but may be explained in terms of microscopic constituents by statistical mechanics.
