Thermodynamics and Chemistry

Written by: Howard DeVoe (University of Maryland)

Free PDF chemistry book by Howard DeVoe, Associate Professor Emeritus, University of Maryland. It is designed for a one semester course at either the undergraduate or graduate level. One reviewer said of the first edition, “The author is very good at giving clear, qualitative explanations of thermodynamic concepts…Most thermodynamics textbooks do not present this material as clearly.”

The text includes a number of Appendices including a calculus review, a list of physical constants and answers to selected exercises. It can be viewed as a browser-readable e-book or downloaded as a single PDF file. However, the online version does not include the biographical sketches.
