Course Description: Concepts and laws of thermodynamics, macroscopic thermodynamic properties, application to closed and open systems, microscopic approach to entropy, equations of state, thermodynamics of non reacting mixtures. Scope and Objective: Thermodynamics deals with energy, matter, and the laws governing their interactions. It is essential to learn its usefulness in the design of processes, devices, and systems involving effective utilization of energy and matter. The course emphasizes on the fundamentals and concepts of the laws of thermodynamics as applied to control mass and control volume systems. Irreversibility and availability are powerful tools in the design of thermodynamic systems. Text Book: Claus Borgnakke, & Richard E.
