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.

New Features

  • McGraw-Hill is proud to offer Connect with with the eighth edition of Cengel/Boles, Thermodynamics, An Engineering Approach. This innovative and powerful new system that helps your students learn more efficiently and gives you the ability to assign homework problems simply and easily. Problems are graded automatically, and the results are recorded immediately. Track individual student performance - by question, assignment, or in relation to the class overall with detailed grade reports. ConnectPlus provides students with all the advantages of Connect plus 24/7 access to an eBook.
  • McGraw-Hill's LearnSmart a proven adaptive learning program that helps students learn faster, study more efficiently, and retain more knowledge through a series of adaptive questions. This innovative study tool pinpoints concepts the student does not understand and maps out a personalised plan for success.
  • NEW Full Color Design! Thermodynamics is now presented in full, four-color design. The illustrations and photographs are now more realistic and offer increased understanding to the student.
  • This edition includes over 500 new problems. A significant number of the existing problems are modified
  • Some specific changes include improving the discussion of statistical entropy in Chapter 7, shortening the title of Chapter 8 as “Exergy” and enhancing the discussions of the Otto cycle in Chapter 9.
  • Renewable Energy is now covered in a new chapter available on the companion website. Up-to-date examples of solar, wind, geothermal, and other types of energy are covered with their thermodynamics underpinnings.
  • 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.
  • Numerous small changes and improvements are made throughout the text including some updates based on recent events and developments.

Key Features

  • An Emphasis on Physical Aspects of Thermodynamics develops student understanding of the underlying mechanisms and phenomena by using ordinary day-to-day experiences that build up to a mathematical problem. Cengel uses easily recognizable applications and examples.
  • More Illustrations and Photographs than other texts more easily lets students understand the applications and examples. 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.
  • Engineering Equation Solver Software (EES) from F-Chart Software allows students to conduct real-world engineering analysis and perform in-depth parametric problem exploration by plotting key variables and generating the results using EES.
  • COSMOS--the Complete Online Solutions Manual Organization System is available with Thermodynamics An Engineering Approach. COSMOS makes it easy to select exercises and build assignments that can be distributed online or in print. Instructors can also edit existing problems or add their own. Learn more about the system and register by clicking the following link: cosmos.mhhe.com . COSMOS is for instructor use only.
  • Money Saving eBook Available. To purchase an electronic eBook version of this title, visit www.CourseSmart.com (ISBN 9780077624804). With the CourseSmart e Textbook version of this title, students can save money, reduce their impact on the environment, and access powerful web tools for learning.
