Notes: All exams are open book and are given in class at the usual time and place. Booklets of tables will be used, so contact me if you do not have one.

Missing an exam will result in ZERO for that exam unless there is a valid excuse with documentation. In that case, the scores on subsequent exams will be more heavily weighted. No make-up exams will be given for any reason whatsoever. No exams will be given in advance, for any reason whatsoever.

 

Homework Assignments will be collected and partially graded. No late assignments will be accepted. Not all problems will be graded. Solutions will be posted after due date.

Course Objectives:

1. Students will learn the fundamental principles of thermodynamics.

2. Students will be able to analytically solve problems by applying conservation principles to thermodynamic systems.

 

Course Outcomes:

 

1. Students will learn the concepts of internal energy, heat, work, enthalpy, and entropy.

2. Students will be able to obtain values of thermodynamics properties using equations of state, graphs, tables, various thermodynamic relations, and the principle of corresponding states for single component systems.

3. Students will be able to apply the first law of thermodynamics to physical systems, both closed and open.

4. Students will be able to apply the second law of thermodynamics to physical systems, both closed and open.

5. Students will be able to analyze standard models of cyclic heat engines, refrigeration cycles, and heat pumps.
