MEE 351/352 – Thermodynamics I

Introduction to Thermodynamics

Thermo – Energy
Dynamics – Pattern of changes

The study of changes in energy associated with physical and chemical reaction is called thermodynamics. In general, it is the study of the effect of work, heat and energy on a system.

When changes in energy are studied from a chemistry point of view, it is called chemical thermodynamics.

The study of changes in energy and chemical reaction is based on the basis of principles called laws of thermodynamics. These are known as the zeroth, first, the second and third law of thermodynamics.

For the purpose of this course, we will look at the following topics in the course outline below:

Materials on Thermodynamics III and also Thermal Power Engineering are also available for those interested.
