Contents The scope of thermodynamics, chemical thermodynamics, and statistical thermodynamics -- Physical units, accepted constants, and empirical temperatures -- Historical background of the first and second laws of thermodynamics -- Equations of state -- The first law of thermodynamics and its formal applications -- Formal treatment of the second law of thermodynamics -- Equilibria between two or more phases of a pure substance -- Partial molal quantities -- Generalized thermodynamics (The methods of J. Willard Gibbs, Part I) -- Imperfect gases. Fugacity and entropy diagrams -- Solutions. The activity of non-electrolytes -- Systematic calculation of heat content (enthalpy), free energy, and entropy changes in chemical reactions. The equilibrium constant. Use of tables. The third law of thermodynamics -- Solutions of electrolytes -- Electromotive force of cells -- Thermodynamics involving variables other than pressure, temperature, and composition -- Energy levels of particles, atoms, and molecules. Atomic and molecular spectra -- Introduction to statistical mechanics. The distribution laws -- Thermodynamic functions for systems of localized elements and "dilute" gases -- Calculation of the thermodynamic properties of diatomic gases -- Calculation of the partition functions and thermodynamic properties of polyatomic gases -- Calculation of the thermodynamic properties of crystals -- Calculation of the magnetic contribution to thermodynamic properties -- The general principles of statistical mechanics (Methods of J. Willard Gibbs, Part II).
