## Errors (still, alas) in the reprinted edition (2008)

• page 2: the US budget deficit should be closer to 1013\$
• page 56: 1st line of eqn 6.14 dν and dθ written twice
• page 62: eqn 7.1, exchange 235 and 238. This expression is of course the ratio of effusion rates.
• page 75: 3 lines after eqn 9.2, dv rather than dc
• page 79: line 10 "per unit time per unit area"
• page 97: 5 lines after eqn 10.56, ν=η/ρ
• page 111: second last bullet, Cv should be Cp
• page 171: P should be p in eqn 16.49
• page 177: line 2 of eqn 16.84, replace Maxwell's relations by reciprocal theorem
• page 214: eqn 20.27, after the second =, -Δ/2T rather than -Δ/T
• page 241: eqn 22.67, K=pB/pA; the line under eqn 22.67, K<<1 and the line below this line K>>1.
• page 241, eqn 22.70, dG=(μBA)dNB.
• page 241: eqn 22.71, K=pA/pB should be K=pB/pA.
• page 243: eqn 22.82 and 22.84, no subscript j for the p in the denominator
• page 249: line after eqn 23.11, replace K-1 by K-4
• page 255: eqn 23.44 should be negative.
• page 260: eqn 23.60, on the right side g2/ g1, not g1/g2; eqn 23.61 the sign on the exponential should be plus
• page 290: eqn 26.41: No V on the left, just p, minus sign in front of a/V2
• page 337: There should not be (2S+1) in the last line of eqn 30.3.
• page 338: Eq. 30.8, missing ln before Z.
• page 340: eqn 30.22, argument of Θ should be (Ek-EF)
• page 345: there should be a 1/(z-1eβE-1) inside the integral of the first part of 30.48.
• page 346: Sentence before (30.51) should say "Equation 30.43 ..."
• page 347: eqn 30.55, first expression should be 1/(z-1-1)
• page 444: between eqn C.41 and C.42, dy rather than dz

## Errors in the reprinted edition (2007)

These include those in the latest reprinted edition, and the following:
• page 64: dM/dt should be |dM/dt| in 7.12 and in the line before
• page 80: In the first bullet point, it is λ which is proportional to n-1 and not κ
• page 90: remove the "/2" in 10.21
• page 221: eqn 21.1 and following line: normalization should be 23/2/V1/2, not 1/V1/2 [though this doesn't affect following argument]
• page 256: On this page, U should be the energy density u
• page 288: Fig. 26.6. Interchange "gas" and "liquid" labels (obviously!)
• page 445: delete 2 in the numerator in eqn C.55

## Errors in the first printing (2006)

These include those in the reprinted editions, and the following:
• page 48: lower limit of integrals in eqns 5.13 and 5.14 should be 0.
• page 94: eqn 10.37 change x to r
• page 95: eqn 10.48 delete r on the denominator
• page 155: marginal note 4 should be James Bernoulli (1654-1705)
• page 169: the first two constraints (in the bulleted list) should read "System with fixed entropy..." and not "System thermally isolated...". See also here.
• page 200: eqn 19.3, last term (1/2)kx2
• page 210: Fig 20.1 caption, Z=1/(2 sinh(βω/2))
• page 213: Right-hand column of Table 20.1, the entry for p should be
• page 216: minus sign in exponential in ln(1-e-&betaω) terms in eqns 20.31, 20.32
• page 217: insert βΔ after (2J+1) on RHS of eqn 20.34
• page 220: coth should be cosh in eqn 20.44
• page 235, (22.16) should be:
• page 342: upper limits in integrals (30.31) should be EF
• page 405, line after (35.37), change "total energy" to "total power".
• page 409, second line of Example 35.4 should read "(a) p(r)" not "(a) ρ(r)"
• page 418, line before (36.23) GMm/R
• page 434, formula 4 of section 2: cosh 2x= cosh2x + sinh2x
• page 448: eqn C.81 insert minus sign before D; eqn C.83 dx should be dk
