Exercises from the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics

Exercises from the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics

Exercises from the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics

I study Chemical Engineering and I'm preparing for an exam. The exam includes:
1. Calculation of entropy change in various processes (isothermal, adiabatic, isobaric) and entropy of mixing
2. Carnot cycle and heat engines
3. Gibbs and Helmholtz free energies
4. Maxwell's relations
5. Changes in G in chemical reactions
6. The Gibbs-Helmholtz equation
7. Fugacity
8. The Gibbs-Duhem equation
9. Phase equilibria
10. Clapeyron and Clausius-Clapeyron equations
11. Ideal and non-ideal solutions
Can anyone recommend me some exercises or a book with exercises and solutions?

RE: Exercises from the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics

The Principles of Chemical Equilibrium, by Kenneth Denbigh.

Study hard, but get enough (7-8 hours) sleep!

Good Luck,

What's the problem with your Chem. thermodynamics textbook. The method I would use with such textbook is to do as many problems as possible at the end of each chapter.

RE: Exercises from the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics

I would do every problem that has the answer at the end of the book/appendix!

Good Luck,

RE: Exercises from the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics

You may consider :Fundamentals of Thermodynamics by Borgnakke and Sonntag -Wiley 10th Edition
Any textbook of Thermo should do the job.
Good luck

RE: Exercises from the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics

or a copy of Lewis and Randall, it has been updated since 1923.
I don't know of a good Physical Chemistry text.
I own 2 and nether one is worth recommending.
And brush up your diff calculus.
