This textbook covers basic principles of equilibrium behavior for systems of interest to chemical engineering, including elementary microscopic concepts. A strong emphasis is placed on fundamentals: energy conservation in open and closed systems (first law), temperature, entropy and reversibility (second law), fundamental equations, and criteria for equilibrium and stability. These concepts are then applied to the analysis of energy conversion processes, mixing, phase equilibria, and chemical reactions.
