This textbook and reference outlines the fundamental principles of thermodynamics, emphasizing applications in geochemistry. The work is distinguished by its comprehensive, balanced coverage and its rigorous presentation. The authors bring years of teaching experience to the work, and have attempted to particularly address those areas where other texts on the subject have provided inadequate coverage. A thorough review of the necessary mathematics is presented early on, both as a refresher for those with a background in university calculus, and for the benefit of those coming to the subject for the first time. The text is written for students in advanced undergraduate or graduate-level geochemistry as well as for all researchers in this field.

Ward's Anaesthetic Equipment familiarizes the anesthetic trainee very thoroughly with anesthesia and intensive care equipment and it remains the recommended text for Parts II, III and the final FRCA and FFARCSI exams. The newest edition has been completely updated and revised to ensure the close integration of the physical principles and clinical applications of equipment throughout the text. It is the only comprehensive equipment textbook based on UK equipment and practice. This is a comprehensive and highly practical one-stop source of information on the latest anesthetic and intensive care equipment currently in use. Key points and key references are included in every chapter and the text has been rewritten to be very clear and concise. Provides the trainee with a very accessible source of information to aid in the understanding of the basic and more advanced key principles behind equipment and design. Extensively and painstakingly cross-referenced by an experienced author that ensures easy access to consistent, related information. Ward's has been expanded to include intensive care and advanced monitoring equipment in greater detail as well as an expansion of the growing practice of TIVA (total intravenous anesthesia) written with the new syllabus of the FRCA and FFARCSI (Fellowship of the Royal College of Anesthetists and Fellowship of the Irish College of Anesthetists) in mind. Four color photographs throughout Manufacturer's diagrams and schematics simplified and carefully explained to the reader. With 10 additional contributors.

This introduction to the physics and chemistry of Earth's atmosphere with an account of relevant aspects of ocean science, treats atmospheric science and the climate as an integrated whole, and makes explicit the policy implications of what is known. Its critical account of steps taken by the international community to address the issue of climatic change highlights the challenge of dealing with a global issue for which the political and economic stakes are high, where uncertainties are common and where there is a need for clear thinking and informed policy.

Equilibrium Thermodynamics gives a comprehensive but concise course in the fundamentals of classical thermodynamics. Although the subject is essentially classical in nature, illustrative material is drawn widely from modern physics and free use is made of microscopic ideas to illuminate it. The overriding objective in writing the book was to achieve a clear exposition: to give an account of the subject that it both stimulating and easy to learn from. Classical thermodynamics has such wide application that it can be taught in many ways. The terms of reference for Equilibrium Thermodynamics are primarily those of the undergraduate physicist; but it is also suitable for courses in chemistry, engineering, materials science etc. The subject is usually taught in the first or second year of an undergraduate course, but the book takes the student to degree standard (and beyond). Prerequisites are elementary or school-level thermal physics.

This 2nd edition volume of Modern Gas-Based Temperature and Pressure Measurements follows the first publication in 1992. It collects a much larger set of information, reference data, and bibliography in temperature and pressure metrology of gaseous substances, including the physical-chemical issues related to gaseous substances. The book provides solutions to practical applications where gases are used in different thermodynamic conditions. Modern Gas-Based Temperature and Pressure Measurements, 2nd edition is the only comprehensive survey of methods for pressure measurement in gaseous media used in the medium-to-low pressure range closely connected with thermometry. It assembles current information on thermometry and manometry that involve the use of gaseous substances which are likely to be valid methods for the future. As such, it is an important resource for the researcher. This edition is updated through the very latest scientific and technical developments of gas-based temperature and pressure measurements using thermometry and manometry, and brings all of the techniques together under one cover. This book fills the gap in international literature, as no other recently published book provides a comprehensive survey for gaseous media closely connected with thermometry. Updates in this new edition include revised appendices and new chapters on Mutual Recognition Agreement of the Comité International des Poids et Mesures and its main applications, and developments in the European Metrology Society.

Inorganic Chemistry easily surpasses its competitors in sheer volume and depth of information. Readers are presented with summaries that ease exam preparation, an extensive index, numerous references for further study, six invaluable appendixes, and over 150 tables that provide important data on elements at a quick glance. Now in its 101st printing, Inorganic Chemistry provides an authoritative and comprehensive reference for graduate students, as well as chemists and scientists in fields related to chemistry such as physics, biology, geology, pharmacy, and medicine. Translated for the first time into English, Holleman and Wiberg's book is a bestseller in Germany, where every chemist knows and values it. Prior to this translation, there was no equivalent to Holleman and Wiberg's book in English.

The discipline of instrumentation has grown appreciably in recent years because of advances in sensor technology and in the interconnectivity of sensors, computers and control systems. This 4e of the Instrumentation Reference Book embraces the equipment and systems used to detect, track and store data related to physical, chemical, electrical, thermal and mechanical properties of materials, systems and operations. While traditionally a key area within mechanical and industrial engineering, understanding this greater and more complex use of sensing and monitoring controls and systems is essential for a wide variety of engineering areas--from manufacturing to chemical processing to aerospace operations to even the everyday automobile. In turn, this has meant that the automation of manufacturing, process industries, and even building and infrastructure construction has been improved dramatically. And now with remote wireless instrumentation, heretofore inaccessible or widely dispersed operations and procedures can be automatically monitored and controlled. This already well-established reference work will reflect these dramatic changes with improved and expanded coverage of the traditional domains of instrumentation as well as the cutting-edge areas of digital integration of complex sensor/control systems. Thoroughly revised, with up-to-date coverage of wireless sensors and systems, as well as nanotechnologies role in the evolution of sensor technology Latest information on new sensor equipment, new measurement standards, and new software for embedded control systems, networking and automated control Three entirely new sections on Controllers, Actuators and Final Control Elements; Manufacturing Execution Systems; and Automation Knowledge Base Up-dated and expanded references and critical standards
