Principles of Heat and Mass Transfer 7th Edition is a comprehensive book for undergraduate mechanical engineers. Designed to be used for a one semester course on heat and mass transfer, the book teaches students the basic principles of heat transfer, covering conduction, convection and radiation. It also discusses the applications of the subject, explaining how critical elements of the mechanical industry such as heat exchangers work. In addition, the book discusses the basic tenets of mass transfer, taking readers through diffusion and flow. It is an essential title for any student studying heat and mass transfer prior to beginning an advanced course on the sub-topics.
