Description

x

Thermodynamics, An Engineering Approach, covers the basic principles of thermodynamics while presenting a wealth of real-world engineering examples, so students get a feel for how thermodynamics is applied in engineering practice. This text helps students develop an intuitive understanding by emphasizing the physics and physical arguments. Cengel and Boles explore the various facets of thermodynamics through careful explanations of concepts and use of numerous practical examples and figures, having students develop necessary skills to bridge the gap between knowledge, and the confidence to properly apply their knowledge.

McGraw-Hill Education's Connect, is also available as an optional, add on item. Connect is the only integrated learning system that empowers students by continuously adapting to deliver precisely what they need, when they need it, how they need it, so that class time is more effective. Connect allows the professor to assign homework, quizzes, and tests easily and automatically grades and records the scores of the student's work. Problems are randomized to prevent sharing of answers an may also have a "multi-step solution" which helps move the students' learning along if they experience difficulty.

New Features

  • McGraw-Hill Education Connect is a digital teaching and learning environment that improves performance over a variety of critical outcomes; it is easy to use; and it is proven effective.
  • Available within McGraw-Hill Education’s Connect, SmartBook makes study time as productive and efficient as possible. It identifies and closes knowledge gaps through a continually adapting reading experience that provides personalized learning resources at the precise moment of need. This ensures that every minute spent with SmartBook is returned to the student as the most value-added minute possible. The result? More confidence, better grades, and greater success.
  • NEW Full Color Design! Thermodynamics is now presented in full, four-color design. The illustrations and photographs are now more realistic and offer increased understanding to the student.
  • This edition includes over 500 new problems. A significant number of the existing problems have also been modified.
  • Some specific changes include improving the discussion of statistical entropy in Chapter 7, shortening the title of Chapter 8, and enhancing the discussions of the Otto cycle in Chapter 9.
  • Renewable energy is now covered in a new chapter available online, and up-to-date examples of solar, wind, geothermal, and other types of energy are covered with their thermodynamics underpinnings.
  • Numerous small changes and improvements are made throughout the text including some updates based on recent events and developments.

Key Features

  • "An Emphasis on Physical Aspects of Thermodynamics" develops student understanding of the underlying mechanisms and phenomena by using ordinary day-to-day experiences that build up to a mathematical problem. Cengel uses easily recognizable applications and examples.
  • COSMOS (the Complete Online Solutions Manual Organization System) is available with Signals & Systems, for instructors only. COSMOS makes it easy to select exercises and build assignments that can be distributed online or in print. Instructors can also edit existing problems or add their own.
