About Course

The course aims to understand the basic of thermodynamics to know about thermodynamic system and its equilibrium, thermodynamics laws, behaviour of pure substances (Ideal and real gases evaluation of thermodynamic properties) and its application in practical problems.

Description

Basic thermodynamics is fundamentals topic in thermal engineering.  The subject deals with the study/behaviour of thermodynamic system and its equilibrium based on laws of thermodynamics and to understand various forms of energy – heat transfer and work. Evaluating the feasibility of cyclic and non-cyclic processes using the laws of thermodynamics. Definition of entropy, reversibility and irreversibility, closed and open thermodynamic systems. Determine the quantity of energy transfers and change in properties to study the behaviour of pure substances and its application in industrial problems. Recognize the differences between ideal and real gases and evaluate thermodynamic properties of ideal and real gas mixtures using various relations derived from the laws of thermodynamics.

What Will I Learn?

  • Gain fundamental knowledge of thermodynamics and evaluate energy interactions across the boundary of thermodynamic systems
  • Evaluate the feasibility of cyclic and non-cyclic processes using 2nd law of thermodynamics.
  • Apply the knowledge of entropy, reversibility and irreversibility by apply the laws of thermodynamics to closed and open systems.
  • Determine quantity of energy transfers and change in properties.
  • Recognize differences between ideal and real gases to evaluate thermodynamic properties of ideal and real gas mixtures using various relations derived from the laws of thermodynamics.
  • Interpret the behavior of pure substances and its application in solving practical problems.
