preface of This book
The book is divided into four parts. The first part focuses on the macroscopic properties of physical systems. It begins with the descriptive study of gases and liquids, and proceeds to the study of thermodynamics, which is a comprehensive macroscopic theory of the behavior of material systems. The second part focuses on dynamics, including gas kinetic theory, transport processes, and chemical reaction kinetics. The third part presents quantum mechanics and spectroscopy. The fourth part presents the relationship between molecular and macroscopic properties of systems through the study of statistical mechanics. This theory is applied to the structure of condensed phases. The book is designed so that the first three parts can be studied in any order, while the fourth part is designed to be a capstone in which the other parts are integrated into a cohesive whole.
Answers to all of the numerical exercises and to the odd-numbered numerical problems are placed in Appendix K. A solutions manual, with complete solutions to all exercises and all odd numbered problems, is available from the publisher. An instructor’s manual with solutions to the even-numbered problems is available on-line to instructors. The instructor can choose whether to allow students to have access to the solutions manual, but can assign even-numbered problems when he or she wants the students to work problems without access to solutions.
