Thermodynamics 8th Edition in SI Units
Thermodynamics, An Engineering Approach, eighth edition, covers the basic principles of thermodynamics while presenting a wealth of real-world engineering examples so students get a feel for how thermodynamics is applied in engineering practice. This text helps students develop an intuitive understanding by emphasizing the physics and physical arguments. Cengel and Boles explore the various facets of thermodynamics through careful explanations of concepts and use of numerous practical examples and figures, having students develop necessary skills to bridge the gap between knowledge and the confidence to properly apply their knowledge. Thermodynamics is now presented in full, four-color design. The illustrations and photographs are now more realistic and offer increased understanding to the student. Some of the figures and photographs in the text are intended to serve as a means of emphasizing key concepts that would otherwise go unnoticed. This edition includes over 500 new problems and a significant number of the existing problems are modified. An important change is the update of the R-134a tables to make property values consistent with those from the latest version of EES (Engineering Equasion Solver). All the solved examples and end-of-chapter problems dealing with R-134a are modified to reflect this change.

“Principles of Statistics for Engineers and Scientists” offers the same crystal clear presentation of applied statistics as Bill Navidi’s “Statistics for Engineers and Scientists” text, in a manner especially designed for the needs of a one-semester course that is focused on applications. By presenting ideas in the context of real-world data sets and with plentiful examples of computer output, the book is great for motivating students to understand the importance of statistics in their careers and their lives. The text features a unique approach highlighted by an engaging writing style that explains difficult concepts clearly and the use of contemporary real world data sets to help motivate students and show direct connections to industry and research. While focusing on practical applications of statistics, the text makes extensive use of examples to motivate fundamental concepts and to develop intuition.
