ERT 254/3 THERMODYNAMICS
This course covers the study of heat related to matter in motion. The course elaborates on the First Law of Thermodynamics which involves the conversion of energy from one form to another and the Second Law of Thermodynamics which determines the direction of heat flow, and the availability of energy to do work. Topics on gas power and refrigeration cycles as well as phase equilibrium are also covered.
Ability to analyze the properties of pure substances and apply the fundamental knowledge of basic thermodynamic properties.
Ability to analyze the engineering problems relate to energy in closed system and apply second law of thermodynamics in refrigeration cycle.
Ability to predict the P-V-T behavior of gas mixture and analyze the gas vapor pressure and chemical reaction using knowledge of thermodynamics properties for process of innovation.
