This textbook provides a thorough and comprehensive introduction to stoichiometry and thermodynamics with special emphasis on applications to metallurgical processes. The author's approach is to introduce students early on to the fundamentals of the physical chemistry and thermodynamics of metallurgical processes and then gradually expand the treatment into progressively more advanced areas. Topics covered include the laws of thermodynamics, material and energy balances, gasification and combustion of fuels, the iron blast furnace, direct reduction reactors, nonferrous smelters, fluidized-bed roasters, the theory of solutions, chemical equilibrium, electrochemistry. Also included are over 150 worked examples and 450 exercises, many with solutions. The examples and exercises range from straightforward tests of theory to complex analyses of real processes. Every chapter is provided with a full and up-to-date set of references.Rao, Y. K. is the author of 'Stoichiometry and Thermodynamics of Metallurgical Processes', published 1985 under ISBN 9780521258562 and ISBN 0521258561.
