About the Book

Thermodynamics being one of the basic subjects in all engineering disciplines there are umpteen books on it. The main aim of this one is to make the subject effortless for the students and help them pass the examination with flying colours. For this reason, the text has been kept short and simple and the book provides a heavy dose of solved examples, MCQs, review questions and numerical problems to hone the problem-solving skills. It has been written in such a style that the students of all streams, be it mechanical, chemical, electrical or civil, will find it comprehensible.
The book covers the syllabuses of degree classes of most Indian universities. It is designed to serve both levels—the basic as well as applied thermodynamics—to give a new dimension to the learning of thermodynamics.
