Summary:
Accompanying CD-ROM ... "has been completely updated to use Excel as a computational thermodynamics tool. Twenty-five examples related to the text are solved in step-by-step detail. Students can conduct thermodynamic calculations, generate equation parameters from tabular data, calculate reaction parameters, and perform equilibrium calculations involving non-ideal solutions."--P. [4] of cover.
