Elective, Credits | Requisites 2credit | |

Syllabus Number | 1C201 |

In this series of lectures, students learn the basic items, objectives and targets of thermodynamics, units, heat energy and work, entropy, the first and second laws of thermodynamics, enthalpy, thermodynamic process of ideal gas, cycles and efficiency of heat engines, and combustion of fuel.

Thermodynamics is the study about the energy transform and transfer and is the one of the basic sciences for the investigation of the natural phenomena.

The objective of this course is to understand the basic principles, the law of thermodynamics and thermal efficiency and the heat cycle of each type of thermal engine.

Students will be evaluated based on periodic test (90%) and report assignment (10%). It is necessary to attend more than 2/3 in order to qualify for regular examination. The submitted reports will be corrected and returned.

We assume that you understand physics, chemistry and mathematics of high school and university first year. Always read the textbook of the next lesson described in the first part of the class contents, note down the part which you don’t understand (about 1.5 hours), and attend class. After class, review the points you learned, organize your notes and solve the exercises as suggested (about 1 - 2 hours). Please submit the assignment as a report at the beginning of the next lesson. The contents of the assignment will also be posted on LMS.

Please bring a scientific calculator because you may be doing exercises during class. Depending on the degree of comprehension, the progress may go back and forth. So, we will specifically suggest you the review subject and the next preparatory range at each lesson.
