A standard text combining statistical physics with thermal phenomena, this book presents a unified approach to provide a deeper insight into the subject and to bring out the subtle unity of statistical mechanics and thermodynamics. Suitable as a text for undergraduate courses in physics. KEY FEATURES Presents a new pedagogical approach introducing macroscopic (classical) thermodynamics through the statistical mechanics. This new approach is increasingly sought to be introduced worldwide. Magnitudes of physical quantities under discussion are emphasized through worked-out examples. Questions and exercises are interspersed with the text to help students consolidate the learning. Techniques developed in this course are applied to actual modern situations. Many topics are introduced through the problems to help inculcate self-study.
