About this book
First concise explanation of the laws of Thermodynamics - a must have for science students. Lucid and accessible, with virtually no mathematics, enabling readers to get to grips with challenging concepts whilst introducing fascinating ideas like 'free energy'.
The laws of thermodynamics drive everything that happens in the universe. From the expansion of a cloud of gas to the cooling of hot metal, and from the unfurling of a leaf to the course of life itself - everything is directed and constrained by four simple laws. Peter Atkins' powerful introduction explains what the laws are and how they work.
