Thermodynamics is the science that describes the behavior ofmatter at the macroscopic scale, and how this arises fromindividual molecules. As such, it is a subject of profoundpractical and fundamental importance to many science andengineering fields. Despite extremely varied applications rangingfrom nanomotors to cosmology, the core concepts of thermodynamicssuch as equilibrium and entropy are the same across alldisciplines. A Conceptual Guide to Thermodynamics serves as a concise,conceptual and practical supplement to the major thermodynamicstextbooks used in various fields. Presenting clear

This textbook takes an interdisciplinary approach to the subject of thermodynamics and is therefore suitable for undergraduates in chemistry, physics and engineering courses. The book is an introduction to phenomenological thermodynamics and its applications to phase transitions and chemical reactions, with some references to statistical mechanics. It strikes the balance between the rigorousness of the Callen text and phenomenological approach of the Atkins text. The book is divided in three parts. The first introduces the postulates and laws of thermodynamics

Thermodynamics is an important tool to interpreting the conditions at which natural geomaterial equilibrate. It allows one to determine, for example, the equilibrium pressures and temperatures and the nature and chemical composition of phases - volved mineralogical and petrological processes. Simple chemical model systems, which are often studied in the laboratory in order to understand more complicated natural systems, generally consist of few chemical components. In order to use phase equilibrium results obtained from model systems for interpreting the con-
