## Thermodynamics Problem SolverThe Problem Solvers are an exceptional series of books that are thorough, unusually well-organized, and structured in such a way that they can be used with any text. No other series of study and solution guides has come close to the Problem Solvers in usefulness, quality, and effectiveness. Educators consider the Problem Solvers the most effective series of study aids on the market. Students regard them as most helpful for their school work and studies. With these books, students do not merely memorize the subject matter, they really get to understand it. Each Problem Solver is over 1,000 pages, yet each saves hours of time in studying and finding solutions to problems. These solutions are worked out in step-by-step detail, thoroughly and clearly. Each book is fully indexed for locating specific problems rapidly. For students in engineering, physics, and chemistry. Comprehensive problems are included in pressure, work and heat, energy, entropy, first and second laws, ideal gas processes, vapor refrigeration cycles, mixtures, and solutions. |

It expantiates and explains giving the reason for every equation and how it comes. When I have gaps in my head from other books this is where I come to fill them
