Chemical principles in practice. The Principles of Chemical Equilihrlum. Cambridge University Press, There is now, it is true, no shortage of textbooks on Thermodynamics, written from a surprising range of different viewpoints. But the reviewer knows of none which presents the classical theory of chemical thermodynamics, and the elements of its extension by statistical principles, in a manner which appeals more effectively to the young student.
Common stumbling-blocks are removed by numerous footnotes, which remind the student just at the equiilbrium moment that the logarithm of a fraction is negative or that a cell is reversible if it is in a state of stable equilibrium when there is no flow of current.
The book sets out persuasively to inculcate a proper approach to the subject of thermodynamics, for instance equilibroum the sound advice that nothing should be committed to memory, since all the mathematical apparatus can readily be derived from a few equations which should become familiar.
Numerous problems, with the answers and comments supplied in an appendix, are provided to assist in this familiarization.
This is reasonable not only because of the engineering aspects of physical chemistry, but also, for instance, because the actual calibration of very low temperatures, denbih for applications of the third law of thermodynamics, is in practice based on cyclic processes.
One of the last chapters of the book is, in fact, devoted to perfect crystals and the third law, and the final chapter extends the consideration of equilibria to chemical kinetics, especially though a critical discussion of the theory of absolute reaction rates. The path leading the student to these summits is well laid out with a special eye to smooth gradients. The path starts from the first and second law, through phase rule studies, ideal and non-ideal mixtures, chemical equilibrium and electrolytes, and for some sixty pages it traverses the statistical landscape of ensembles and partition functions.

There are few obscure places, but in the middle of page part of a sentence has been accidentally omitted. Although the author had in mind equilibbrium third-year student, the first ten chapters are highly suitable for first and second-year students of chemistry.
Van Nostrand, New York However its novelty lies not so much in the use of the equations of statistical mechanics as a starting-point but in the justification of these equations. The link between equation 3 in information theory and statistical mechanics is a naner of E.
