MNE 220: Engineering Thermodynam I
Pre-reqs: CHM 153 or CHM 151, and MTH 152 or MTH 154
General Education requirement: 2B - Engaged Science
The fundamental concepts and basic principles of classical thermodynamics. The Zeroth, First and Second laws of thermodynamics are formulated with recourse to empirical observations and then expressed in precise mathematical language. These laws are applied to a wide range of engineering problems. The properties of pure substances are described using equations of state and surfaces of state. Reversible processes in gases are analyzed by means of the First and Second laws. A representative sampling of engineering applications is discussed and analyzed.
