Thermodynamics by George Hartley Bryan


by George Hartley Bryan

Publisher: Teubner 1907
Number of pages: 232

The author adopted the principles of conservation and degradation of energy as the fundamental laws of thermodynamics, and deduced the ordinary forms of these laws from those principles. Chapters I, II contain a general sketch of the most important facts and definitions of thermodynamics as based on experience.
