ENGS 25 Introduction to Thermodynamics

The fundamental concepts and methods of thermodynamics are developed around the first and second laws. The distinctions among heat, work, and energy are emphasized. Common processes for generating work, heat, refrigeration, or changing the physical or chemical state of materials are analyzed. The use of thermodynamic data and auxiliary functions, such as entropy, enthalpy, and free energy, is integrated into the analysis. The numerous problems show how theoretical energy requirements and the limitations on feasible processes can be estimated. Enrollment is limited to 60 students.

Distributive and/or World Culture

TAS

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
