Demystifies the subject by demonstrating the natural connection between classical and statistical approaches to thermodynamics, both as a means of obtaining useful information about existing systems and illustrating the relation between the molecular and macroscopic level properties of systems. Presents practical problems in terms of classical thermodynamic equations and solves them using the techniques of statistical thermodynamics.
