Bulletin Description

The first law of thermodynamics is studied in detail. Material covered includes concepts of energy, enthalpy, heat effects, conservation of energy, interaction between heat transfer, mechanical work and chemical energy liberation, equation of state, behavior of gases and liquids and standard heat of reaction, formation and combustion. Study of combined mass and energy balances and the principles of the second and third law of thermodynamics are also covered.
