For undergraduate science and engineering students, Metiu (chemistry and physics, U. of California, Santa Barbara) provides a text on thermodynamics and physical chemistry that uses software to perform the complicated mathematics. The CD-ROM that accompanies the book contains this software in the Mathematica and Mathcad Workbooks, used for solving the problems and illustrating calculations. Calculations are also explained in the text. Topics discussed are temperature, pressure, molar volume, and equilibrium; the equation of a state; thermodynamic transformations; work; heat; path-dependent and path-independent quantities; the first and second laws; free energies; calculating the change of entropy; enthalpy and energy change; thermochemistry; chemical potential; mixtures; chemical equilibrium; phase transitions; electrolyte solutions; and galvanic cells. Metiu is also author of the three other volumes in the four-volume series, including Physical Chemistry: Statistical Mechanics, Physical Chemistry: Kinetics, and Physical Chemistry: Quantum Mechanics.
