Thermodynamics: An Engineering Approach, 9/e (SI Units)(Paperback)

Yunus Cengel , Michael A. Boles , Mehmet Kanoglu



  • Description
    Distinguished as a best seller, the title Thermodynamics: An Engineering Approach is taking another step towards excellence with this revised edition. Through its careful explanations of concepts and use of numerous practical examples and figures, this book aims to bridge the gap between knowledge and application.

    About the Cover
    The launch of a space shuttle occurs with the help of a rocket. Operation of a rocket engine is an exemplary application of thermodynamics, which involves a sequence of thermodynamic processes. The chemical energy that s stored in the fuel of the rocket engine is first converted into thermal energy and then kinetic energy. As the rocket climbs higher into the atmosphere, some of that kinetic energy get stored as gravitational potential energy. In addition, the combustion products (gases) accelerate through a converging-diverging nozzle to supersonic speeds in accordance with the first and second laws of thermodynamics. This provides the net positive thrust against the air drag, which propels the rocket in the opposite direction.
