Introduction to Classical Thermodynamics

by: Dr. Ananda G K

It is well known that thermodynamics presents students with particular difficulties. They find the concepts evasive and the methods obscure. These problems arise because it is traditional to emphasize at the outset how general thermodynamics is. Unfortunately, when ideas are introduced in an unspecific context they fail to make contact with the student’s experience – such ideas do not become part of the physical intuition of the student. In this introductory text, the subject is developed in stages beginning with the basic notions, which are illustrated using an ideal gas as a model system. The generalization of these concepts is achieved first using the classical laws of thermodynamics and second using the formalism of Gibbs to provide a systematic introduction to the thermodynamic potentials. Work processes on polarizable media subject to electric and magnetic fields are discussed and transformations of matter, including phase change processes and chemical reactions, are treated in detail. The book contains many worked examples, and approximately 250 questions, which are keyed to the text. The questions include traditional and applied topics, and longer questions have been programmed to guide the student.

Dr. Ananda Guddenahalli Kullegowda, Assistant Professor, Department of Mechanical Engineering, University Visvesvaraya College of Engineering, Bengaluru, Karnataka State, India. He has secured 3rd university rank holder in PG studies and 10yrs teaching experience. His area of research interest in Solar Energy and Advanced Materials. He has published over 15 research articles in reputed Scopus Index Journals, Web of Science, and Science Citation Index Expanded. He is actively involved in the mentoring of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers for technical programs over the global assignments. More than five reputed journal publishers like Materials Today: Proceedings, AIP Proceedings, and Renewable Energy as received expert Reviewer Recognition. The opportunities to teach and work with students and develop new educational materials and techniques as well as perform high-quality research are my primary reasons for choosing an academic career. As a result, I have acquired extensive teaching experience at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels at BTL Institute of Technology, and Jnanavikas Institute of Technology under affiliation with Visvesvaraya Technological University. He recently identified that reduced graphene oxide nano-fluids are an alternative for micro-fluids to enhance the rate of heat transfer on the solar parabolic trough collectors. Globally, graphene oxide has emerging trends in the field of biomedical, solar thin film, and energy conversion.For his novel research work contributed and filed for Indian Patent.My independent research program is inspired by graduation,post-graduation studies, and doctoral research work that has contributed to society.
