Summary

Thermodynamics Seventh Edition 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 of thermodynamics by emphasizing the physics and physical arguments. Cengel/Boles explore the various facets of thermodynamics through careful explanations of concepts and its use of numerous practical examples and figures, having students develop necessary skills to bridge the gap between knowledge and the confidence to properly apply knowledge.

The media package for this text is extensive, giving users a large variety of supplemental resources to choose from. A Student Resources DVD is packaged with each new copy of the text and contains the popular Engineering Equation Solver (EES) software. McGraw-Hill's new Connect is available to students and instructors.

Connect is a powerful, web-based assignment management system that makes creating and grading assignments easy for instructors and learning convenient for students. It saves time and makes learning for students accessible anytime, anywhere. With Connect, instructors can easily manage assignments, grading, progress, and students receive instant feedback from assignments and practice problems.

"I ordered the used version for half the price of the new, and with a little bit of effort the DVD worked just fine. No complaints."

Best Book for Thermodynamics July 28, 2011
by
Explanations were clear and allowed for quick reading. This textbook gives a TON of examples, ranging from super easy to the impossible. My favorite part is the mass of indexes that quickly supply constants and pressure/temperature data. This is an excellent textbook, I'm sure I will be able to use this for a long time to come.

A review of a decent textbook September 8, 2010
by
I rented this book and was amazed at what I have learned. The professor didn't teach at all, which was nice, but instead put more emphasis on the textbook. I thought the book did a good job of explaining the engineering fundamentals of how energy conversion between heat and mechanical work, as well as the effects of this process including temperature, volume and pressure.

While this book didn't explain the statistical part of thermodynamics well enough, I still believe this is a great textbook for any engineering major.
