Take theÂ heat off of understanding thermodynamics
Now you can get much-needed relief from the pressure of learning the fundamentals of thermodynamics! This practical guide helps you truly comprehend this challenging engineering topic while sharpening your problem-solving skills.
Written in an easy-to-follow format, Thermodynamics Demystified begins by reviewing basic principles and discussing the properties of pure substances. The book goes on to cover laws of thermodynamics, power and refrigeration cycles, psychrometrics, combustion, and much more. Hundreds of worked examples and equations make it easy to understand the material, and end-of-chapter quizzes and two final exams help reinforce learning.
This hands-on, self-teaching text offers:
Numerous figures to illustrate key concepts
Details on the first and second laws of thermodynamics
Coverage of vapor and gas cycles, psychrometrics, and combustion
An overview of heat transfer SI units throughout
A time-saving approach to performing better on an exam or at work
Simple enough for a beginner, but challenging enough for an advanced student, Thermodynamics Demystified is your shortcut to mastering this essential engineering subject.

This Outline summarizes the basic black letter rules of Environmental Law in a way that allows students to appreciate how different parts of their course material fit together. Ideal for class preparation or as a review before exams. The Outline covers approaches to environmental regulations, constitutional issues in Environmental Law, the National Environmental Policy Act, Clean Water Act, Clean Air Act, Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, Comprehensive Environmental Response Compensation and Liability Act and other toxic substances statutes. The Outline also discusses the complex intersection of law, sciences such as biology, geology, and engineering, and important economic, ethical, and social issues. It also includes a glossary of environmental terms and practice exam questions.
The "Environmental Statutes Outline: A Guide to Federal Laws" is an ideal resource for lawyers and non-lawyers alike. This 4th edition has been revised and updated to contain the latest summaries of the most important environmental legislation. The 50 outlines summarize the major provisions of each statute, and U.S. Code citations within each outline allow ready reference to a statute's full text. For those statutes included in ELI's Environmental Law Deskbook, deskbook citations are provided for efficient cross-reference between the deskbook and the outlines. The Environmental Law Institute's Deskbook series provides practitioners, students, company managers, and government officials with all the resources needed to understand today s complex environmental statutes, regulations, and policies. In-depth analysis by leading practitioners is coupled with the primary sources, such as statutes, regulations, guidance documents, and forms, to provide a comprehensive reference for environmental professionals. Deskbooks are edited by the Environmental Law Reporter staff at ELI, making them the most trusted legal resources in the profession.

The student of biological science in his final years as an undergraduate and his first years as a graduate is expected to gain some familiarity with current research at the frontiers of his discipline. New research work is published in a perplexing diversity of publications and is inevitably concerned with the minutiae of the subject. The sheer number of research journals and papers also causes confusion and difficulties of assimilation. Review articles usually presuppose a background knowÂ ledge of the field and are inevitably rather restricted in scope. There is thus a need for short but authoritative introductions to those areas of modern biological research which are either not dealt with in standard introductory textbooks or are not dealt with in sufficient detail to enable the student to go on from them to read scholarly reviews with profit. This series of books is designed to satisfy this need. The authors have been asked to produce a brief outline of their subject assuming that their readers will have read and remembered much of a standard introductory textbook on biology. This outline then sets out to provide by building on this basis, the conceptual framework within which modern research work is progressing and aims to give the reader an indication of the problems, both conceptual and practical, which must be overcome if progress is to be maintained.
