4434Supporting individuals with intellectual disabilities & mental illness: What caregivers need to know
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=1026787
This multidisciplinary resource develops topics of interest to all those who care about and for individuals with co-occurring intellectual disabilities and mental illness. Each chapter presents current evidence informed practice knowledge. Each topic is also presented with audio enabled text boxes emphasizing 'Key Points for Caregivers.' For those who are interested in background knowledge, we provided the comprehensive literature base. And, for those interested mainly in 'what to do,' we provided text box summaries for reading and listening.The book is published by BCcampus and is part of their Open Textbook series. The book can be read online, on Smartphones or ordered in print. The ‘Key Points for Caregivers’ sections have all been read aloud and these audio files have been embedded throughout the book.Study notes for Statistical Physics
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=1026678
This is a free textbook from Bookboon.'This is an academic textbook for a one-semester course in statistical physics at honours BSc level. It is in three parts and begins with a unified treatment of equilibrium systems, based on the concept of the statistical ensemble, in which the usual combinatorial calculation only has to be worked out once. In the second part, it deals with strongly interacting systems in terms of many-body theory, including the virial expansion and critical phenomena at the level of mean-field theory. The third, and last, part of the book is concerned with time-dependence; and, it begins with a classical treatment of the paradox posed by the `arrow of time'. This is the question of why macroscopic systems are irreversible when their constituent microscopic interactions are reversible in time. It then treats the derivation of transport equations, linear response theory, and quantum dynamics. Throughout the book, the emphasis is on a clear, concise exposition, with all steps being clearly explained.'IVMS| Textbook of Human Physiology and Biophysics

The basic medical science of the kidney as the foundation of clinical nephrology.Embedded Controllers Using C and Arduino, 2E
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=1022799
Second edition of a newly expanded text. This text is intended as an introduction to embedded controllers for students in Electrical Engineering and Technology at the AAS and/or BS level. It begins with a discussion of the C programming language and then shifts to using the open source Arduino hardware platform. Uses both the Arduino library and more direct coding of the controller.Applied Thermodynamics: Software Solutions Part-I (Gas Power cycles)
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=1022617
This is a free book from BookBoon.'This is Part – I of the book: “Applied Thermodynamics: Software Solutions”.This is a logical continuation from the book “Basic Thermodynamics: Software Solutions”, published earlier.In this book, problems on ‘Gas power cycles’ are solved.Cycles dealt with are: Carnot cycle, Otto cycle (for petrol engines), Diesel and Dual combustion cycles (for Diesel engines) and Stirling cycle.Software used are: Mathcad, Engineering Equation Solver (EES), and The Expert System on Thermodynamics (TEST).An introduction to these softwares is given in Part-I of the free eBook “Basic Thermodynamics: Software Solutions”, published in five parts, which can be downloaded for free from www.bookboon.com.ContentGas Power CyclesDefinitions, Statements and Formulas used [1–6]Problems on Otto cycle (or, constant volume cycle)Problems on Diesel cycle (or, constant pressure cycle)Problems on Dual cycle (or, limited pressure cycle)Problems on Stirling cycleReferences'Engineering Fluid Mechanics Solution Manual
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=1017031
'Fluid mechanics is an essential subject taught at degree level on engineering and science courses.The book is complimentary follow up for the book “Engineering Fluid mechanics” also published on BOOKBOON, presenting the solutions to tutorial problems, to help students check if their solution method is correct, and if not, they can see the full solution hence giving them further practice in problem solving in the area of fluid mechanics.This manual is a small book containing the full solutions to all tutorial problems cited in the original book were presented at the end of each chapter.'Fundamentals of Chemistry Part II
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=1017032
'This book is about fundamental concepts that any chemistry student should not only be aware of but proficient at. This chemistry book deals with electrochemistry, chemical equilibrium, acids and bases, thermochemistry, and includes several numerical examples to apply the new concepts. Additional exercises and their solutions will be provided in the third volume of “Fundamental of Chemistry”.'Biodiversity in Ecosystems - Linking Structure and Function
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=1015382
This book introduces different concepts and theories important to understand the links between ecosystem function and ecosystem biodiversity and provides a wide range of different studies showcasing the evidence and practical implications of such relationships.
