## Molecular Thermodynamics

#### Donald A. McQuarrie

University of California, Davis

and

John D. Simon

Duke University

### "McQuarrie
is emerging as one of the best writers on undergrad thermodynamics and
statistical mechanics around."

*"*The
writing is exceptionally clear, and explanations are lucid and
sound."

*--The Chemical Educator*

*"*This
book represents a sort of down-sized version of the Magnum Opus by the same
authors: *Physical Chemistry, A Molecular Approach.* For those
readers who are already familiar with this book and like it, I can say that:
this one gives you basically the same goodies but in a more digestible form...McQuarrie
is emerging as one of the the best writers on undergrad thermodynamics and
statistical mechanics around...*"*

--Journal of Statistical Physics

"An extremely large number of worked examples and
end-of-chapter problems supplement this excellent book."

*--Science & Technology*

Evolved from McQuarrie and Simon's best-selling
textbook, *Physical Chemistry: A Molecular Approach, *this
text focuses in on the thermodynamics portion of the course. Although many of the chapters in *Molecular
Thermodynamics* are similar to chapters in the larger physical chemistry text, new material has been added throughout
along with three entirely new chapters on "The Energy Levels of Atoms and
Molecules," "Thermodynamics of Electrochemical Cells," and
"Nonequilibrium Thermodynamics." The text also includes five
short "MathChapters," each with a special set of
problems that will help students review and summarize the
mathematical tools required to master the material. Worked
examples and chapter-ending problems with solutions are also
included throughout the book.
