Thermodynamics & Statistical Mechanics Books
Thermodynamics , science of the relationship between heat , work , temperature , and energy. In broad terms, thermodynamics deals with the transfer of energy from one place to another and from one form to another. The key concept is that heat is a form of energy corresponding to a definite amount of mechanical work. Heat was not formally recognized as a form of energy until about , when Count Rumford Sir Benjamin Thompson , a British military engineer, noticed that limitless amounts of heat could be generated in the boring of cannon barrels and that the amount of heat generated is proportional to the work done in turning a blunt boring tool. Another pioneer was the French military engineer Sadi Carnot , who introduced the concept of the heat-engine cycle and the principle of reversibility in Later that century, these ideas were developed by Rudolf Clausius , a German mathematician and physicist, into the first and second laws of thermodynamics, respectively. Although thermodynamics developed rapidly during the 19th century in response to the need to optimize the performance of steam engines, the sweeping generality of the laws of thermodynamics makes them applicable to all physical and biological systems.
