Introduction to Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics, 7th Edition
(18 customer reviews)
"Introduction to Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics, 7/e", presents comprehensive coverage of the subject of thermodynamics from a chemical engineering viewpoint. The text provides a thorough exposition of the principles of thermodynamics and details their application to chemical processes. The chapters are written in a clear, logically organized manner, and contain an abundance of realistic problems, examples, and illustrations to help students understand complex concepts. New ideas, terms, and symbols constantly challenge the readers to think and encourage them to apply this fundamental body of knowledge to the solution of practical problems. The comprehensive nature of this book makes it a useful reference both in graduate courses and for professional practice. The seventh edition continues to be an excellent tool for teaching the subject of chemical engineering thermodynamics to undergraduate students.

A great version of the international edition! Every detail same as the regular 7th edition, just a whole lot cheaper
A few important comments about this version of the international edition. We use this text book in my introductory chemical engineering thermodynamics class and there are other students in my class who also bought the international edition and the chapters are incomplete, there are no English units, and the printing quality is very poor (sometimes with whole sections of tables missing!). Also the homework problems are different for many students in my class since the values are only in SI!
On the other hand, this version of the international edition is word for word, page for page the exact same as the regular 7th edition. I am the only student in the class with this version of the international edition (and honestly I feel really lucky about that!).
So what is the difference between this international version and the normal 7th edition? I guess just that this has a soft cover. And it was $35 instead of $150!
If your class is using the regular 7th edition, I HIGHLY recommend this copy of the international version as it has the exact same contents (like I said, even the page numbers are the same). Other students in my class with other international editions seem to struggle following along with homework problems and examples. So keep an eye out for international versions with this cover (my textbook is the only one in the class with this photo on the cover)
For the actual contents of the textbook, I actually enjoy the book. There are a lot of rigorous mathematical discussions of thermodynamic properties. The problems are pretty standard, and there are a lot of examples worked out in each chapter. Unfortunately the textbook only grazes over statistical and molecular thermodynamics (I mean really, really graze - just a few mentions of statistical thermo and a short chapter on molecular at the end of the book).

Boring, but well presented
Don't expect pretty colors and drawings that catch you're eye from this book. But then again, if you're going to be a chemical engineer, get used to it. The material is presented quite well, at times a bit dense and bland, but reading this book thoroughly will give you a good grasp on thermodynamics. This one will be on the shelf in my office some day.

Another great deal from Amazon!

Yes, this is the edition that followed the one I used in school. It is in near new condition and I really like this text.
