About the Book

It is a comprehensive account of the subject dealing with Fundamental Concepts, Thermodynamic Law, Thermodynamic Functions, Elementary Information about Statistical Thermodynamics; Systems of Variable Composition-Colligative Properties of Ideal Solution, Principles of Purification Techniques like Fractional Distillation, Steam Distillation, Fractional Crystallization and Zone Refining, Chennai Equilibria and Phase Rule upto Three Component Systems. The logical approach and simple style of the book makes it essential to B.Sc. (Hons & General) and M.Sc. students of all Indian universities and a useful reference book for students of Physics and Chemical Engineering.

Key Features

  • Chapter on phase rule has been made more quantitative by thermodynamic discussion of eutectics, solid solutions and phase separation
  • A new chapter on Thermodynamics of Irreversible processes had been added along with a set of exercises
  • In every chapter large number of solved examples and unsolved problems (with their answers given in appendix) of practical utility have been included
  • The objective type problems are given at the end of chapters as review questions for a quick revision of the topic
