This straightforward presentation emphasizes chemical applications of thermodynamics as well as physical interpretations, offering students an introduction that's both interesting and coherent. The author considers the first and second laws of thermodynamics in turn, after which he proceeds to applications of thermodynamic principles. He devotes considerable attention to the concept of entropy, emphasizing the interpretation of entropy changes and chemical behavior in terms of qualitative molecular properties. Students gain a familiarity with the entropy concept that will form a solid foundation for later courses and more formal thermodynamic treatments.
