One finds, in Maxwell's writings on thermodynamics and statistical physics, a conception of the nature of these subjects that differs in interesting ways from the way they are usually conceived. In particular, though—in agreement with the currently accepted view—Maxwell maintains that the second law of thermodynamics, as originally Cited by:

This Is An Introductory Book Which Explains The Foundations Of The Subject And Its Application. It Is Intended Primarily For Graduate Students But May Provide Useful Information And Reading To Science And Engineering Students At All Levels.

It Assumes That Readers Have Knowledge Of Basic Thermodynamics And Quantum Mechanics. With This, The Theory Has Been Developed In A Simple, 3/5(1). Statistical mechanics is one of the pillars of modern is necessary for the fundamental study of any physical system that has many degrees of approach is based on statistical methods, probability theory and the microscopic physical laws.

It can be used to explain the thermodynamic behaviour of large systems. This branch of statistical mechanics, which treats and extends. Statistical physics and thermodynamics describe the behaviour of systems on the macroscopic scale.

Their methods are applicable to a wide range of phenomena: from refrigerators to the interior of stars, from chemical reactions to magnetism. Indeed, of all physical laws, the laws of thermodynamics are perhaps the most universal.

This text provides a concise yet thorough introduction to the key. Statistical Mechanics is a theory that establishes the connection between the observed properties of systems with many degrees of freedom and the microscopic quantum mechanical properties of the elementary constituents of the systems (e.g., electrons, atoms and molecules).File Size: KB.

Statistical thermodynamics provides the formalism for understanding how molecular interactions lead to the observed collective behavior at the macroscale. This course will develop a molecular-level understanding of key thermodynamic quantities like heat, work, free energy and Ratings: starsAverage User Rating.

Statistical thermodynamics is based on the fundamental assumption that all possible configurations of a given system, which satisfy the given boundary conditions such as temperature, volume and number of particles, are equally likely to occur.

The overall system will therefore be. In Mark Kac and others in a set of three papers established that Van der Waals equation of state, originally formulated on empirical basis, can be derived from Principles of Thermodynamics.

It is shown in this paper that the differential equations of macroscopic thermodynamics can be generalized in such a way that they apply as well to small (i.e., nonmacroscopic) systems. Conventional thermodynamic relations then follow from the present treatment as a limiting case (large system).
