Chemical Thermodynamics: an Introduction to General Thermodynamics and its Applications to Chemistry

    Abstract

    A NEW edition of Prof. Partington's “Text-book of Thermodynamics with special reference to Chemistry” (1913) has been desired for some time, and those who are familiar with that work will welcome it in its new form under the title “Chemical Thermodynamics.” The treatment has been simplified as well as brought up-to-date. Any one who is familiar with the large number of relevant papers published during the past decade will marvel at the skill with which the material has been incorporated. The author has made a special feature of the inclusion of much recent work published in American journals. “The accurate experiments, and the ingenious and original treatment, of the American workers on this subject will make all admit gratefully the debt which students in other countries owe to them.” A point which teachers will appreciate is that the equations have been stated, so far as possible, in a form capable of direct numerical application, and many examples, with answers, have been provided. It is a convenience to have the numbers of the paragraphs printed on the inside edges at the tops of the pages. The book will prove indispensable to students of chemistry and physics alike.
