**Written especially for first-year university students studying engineering, this text provides a sound first treatment of many properties of fluids and solids of interest across disciplines.**

*An Introduction to the Properties of Fluids and Solids* deals with some basic thermodynamic and transport properties of fluids and solids that are of interest in engineering applications

Various notions about the basic structure of matter, fundamental concepts of our physical world and the conditions of equilibrium between different phases of matter are discussed in the first part of the book. The macroscopic properties of fluids and solids are explained in the latter part

Written for first-year university students in engineering, simple derivations and clear explanations have been preferred to detailed theoretical treatment. Illustrative problems, spaced throughout the text, demonstrate the application of various concepts and facilitate a better understanding of the theory.

*An Introduction to the Properties of Fluids and Solids* provides a sound first treatment of many properties of fluids and solids of interest in all the engineering disciplines.
