Free thermodynamics textbook available for download

Dear CHEMED-L Colleagues,

As some of you may be aware, I'm the author of "Thermodynamics and Chemistry," a textbook designed for a one-semester course of classical thermodynamics.  The first edition was published in 2001 by Prentice Hall.

I have now finished a revised and expanded second edition in the form of a PDF file that I invite you to download WITHOUT CHARGE OR OBLIGATION OF ANY KIND.

The textbook revision has been a labor of love.  If you teach physical chemistry, or have an interest in thermodynamics, I hope you will find the new edition useful.  I'm making it free of charge as an antidote to the exorbitant cost of commercially-published textbooks.  In return, I ask for nothing except perhaps suggestions for improvements of future versions.

To download the book, please go to the following Web page hosted by the University of Maryland Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry:
