Fundamentals of Thermal-Fluid Sciences https://www.mheducation.com/cover-images/Jpeg_400-high/0078027683.jpeg 5 2017 9780078027680 The objective of this text is to cover the basic principles of thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and heat transfer. Diverse real-world engineering examples are presented to give students a feel for how thermal-fluid sciences are applied in engineering practice. By emphasizing the physics and physical arguments, students are able to develop intuitive understanding of thermal-fluid sciences. This edition contains sufficient material to give instructors flexibility and to accommodate their preferences on the right blend of thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and heat transfer for their students. By careful selection of topics, an instructor can spend one-third, one-half, or two-thirds of the course on thermodynamics and the rest on selected topics of fluid mechanics and heat transfer. McGraw-Hill'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.
