    I hope this stays around.


    Texts referenced in the course notes.
    VN: H.C. Van Ness, Understanding Thermodynamics, Dover Publications, 1983; and
    SB&VW: R. E. Sonntag, C. Borgnakke, and G. J. Van Wylen, Fundamentals of Thermodynamics, John Wiley Publishers, 1998.

    Geez I used Van Wylen and Sonntag 30+ years ago. :biggrin:

    Nice notes. There seems to be a lack of expertise in this area on the homework forums. Hopefully these notes will make up for it.
