Listen to Coronavirus Patient Zero
Jane Cabrera s boldly colored rendition of a favorite rhyme gets an ecofriendly spin. This old woman and her household of high-spirited children and talented pets are resourceful. Together they repair their broken furniture, find alternative modes of transportation when the car breaks down and remake worn clothing with colorful patches. Sheet music for piano, voice and guitar are included in the book."
Everything you ever wanted to know about starting out (or over) on a shoestring. This book covers everything from clothing and personal items to furniture, appliances and transportation with everything in-between.
The author draws from personal experience to show others that you CAN start out (or over) with very little and you CAN make a success of the endeavor. You don't have to suffer, but you do have to have certain basic items. This book takes the guesswork out of what you will need.
Enables readers to apply transport phenomena principles to solve advanced problems in all areas of engineering and science
This book helps readers elevate their understanding of, and their ability to apply, transport phenomena by introducing a broad range of advanced topics as well as analytical and numerical solution techniques. Readers gain the ability to solve complex problems generally not addressed in undergraduate-level courses, including nonlinear, multidimensional transport, and transient molecular and convective transport scenarios.
Avoiding rote memorization, the author emphasizes a dual approach to learning in which physical understanding and problem-solving capability are developed simultaneously. Moreover, the author builds both readers' interest and knowledge by:
Demonstrating that transport phenomena are pervasive, affecting every aspect of life
Offering historical perspectives to enhance readers' understanding of current theory and methods
Providing numerous examples drawn from a broad range of fields in the physical and life sciences and engineering
Contextualizing problems in scenarios so that their rationale and significance are clear
This text generally avoids the use of commercial software for problem solutions, helping readers cultivate a deeper understanding of how solutions are developed. References throughout the text promote further study and encourage the student to contemplate additional topics in transport phenomena.
Transport Phenomena is written for advanced undergraduates and graduate students in chemical and mechanical engineering. Upon mastering the principles and techniques presented in this text, all readers will be better able to critically evaluate a broad range of physical phenomena, processes, and systems across many disciplines.
Joe rides to victory with a pony called Lightning in the second in this fantastic new trilogy of
Joe is delighted that his pony, Lightning, is skilled at mounted games. The two of them make a great pair and Joe can't wait for them to try out for the Prince Phillip Cup team. There's just one problem-Lightning seems quite small now that Joe is growing so fast. What will he do when he's too big to ride her? And what will happen to Lightning if she is sold?
