Newly updated for its tenth edition, Fundamentals of Thermodynamics continues to offer a comprehensive and rigorous treatment of classical thermodynamics, while retaining an engineering perspective. With concise, applications-oriented discussion of topics and self-test problems, this text encourages students to monitor their own learning. The ninth edition is revised with additional examples and end-of-chapter problems to increase student comprehension. This classic text provides a solid foundation for subsequent studies in fields such as fluid mechanics, heat transfer and statistical thermodynamics, and prepares students to effectively apply thermodynamics in the practice of engineering.

Features new to this edition include: a complete re-organisation to streamline the introductory material and to further emphasise key concepts and topics, revised end-of-chapter problems, up-to-date examples and applications that have been integrated throughout the text, and updated online resources.


  • An Engineering Applications section at the end of each chapter describes how the concepts are used in the real-world practice of engineering.
  • End-of-Chapter summaries revisit key concepts, key words and formulas, as well as a review of the skills that the student should have mastered in the chapter.
  • Hundreds of end-of-chapter homework problems are included, with a wide variety of complexity. Study guide questions reinforce key concepts. Later problems in many sections relate to real industrial processes and devices and are labeled under applications or energy conservation.
