Fundamentals of Thermodynamics 8th edition: The presentation is deliberately directed to students. New concepts and definitions are presented within the context where they are first relevant during a natural progression. The introduction has been reorganized with a very short introduction followed by the first thermodynamic properties to be defined (Chapter 1), which are those that can be readily measured: pressure, specific volume, and temperature. In Chapter 2, tables of thermodynamic properties are introduced, but only in regard to these measurable properties. Internal energy and enthalpy are introduced in connection with the energy equation and the first law, entropy with the second law, and therefore the Helmholtz and Gibbs functions within the chapter on thermodynamic relations.
Many real-world realistic examples are included within the Fundamentals of Thermodynamics to help the scholar in gaining an understanding of thermodynamics, and therefore the problems at the top of every chapter have been carefully sequenced to correlate with the topic matter, and are grouped and identified as such. The first half of book contains a lot of examples, illustrations, and problems, and throughout the book, in second half summaries are included, followed by a group of concept problems that ought to be of benefit to the scholars .
This is the primary edition I even have prepared without the thoughtful comments from my colleague and coauthor, the late Professor Richard E. Sonntag, who substantially contributed to earlier versions of this textbook.

Fundamentals of Thermodynamics by Claus Borgnakke and Sonntag continues to offer a comprehensive and rigorous treatment of classical thermodynamics, while retaining an engineering perspective. With concise, applications-oriented discussion of topics and self-test problems the text encourages students to monitor their own comprehension.
The text lays the groundwork for subsequent studies in fields such as fluid mechanics, heat transfer and statistical thermodynamics, and prepares students to effectively apply thermodynamics in the practice of engineering.
