Chapter 1 Introduction and Basic concepts • Concepts – Dimension and units – System and surroundings – Closed system (control mass) and open system (control volume) – properties and state – state equilibrium and postulate – process and cycle • Review concepts of temperature and Pressure • Introduce a systematic problem-solving technique.
Dimensions and Units • Dimension: physical properties or characteristics of a system - Primary Dimensions: mass m , length L , time t , and temperature T, electric current I, luminous intensity Candela, amount of matter , mole - Secondary Dimensions: expressed in terms of the primary dimensions, velocity v , energy E (or work) , force F, and volume V… • Units: magnitudes assigned to dimensions (foot or meter) • Two Unit Systems: English and SI or International System English SI Conversion Factors mass: pound mass, lbm kilogram, kg 1 lbm = 0.45359 kg length: foot, ft meter, m 1 ft = 0.3048 m force: pound force, lbf newton, N 1 lbf = 4.4482 N work / energy: British Thermal Unit, Btu joule, J 1 Btu = 1055.06 J power: Btu/h watt, W 3.41214 Btu/h = 1 W

Unit Conversion • 1 lbm=0.454 kg • Make it fraction • Which is numerator/denominator depends upon conversion • Example : What is kg weight for a person weight 200 lbm? • What is lbm weight for a person weight 100kg lbm kg kg lbm 454 . 0 , 454 . 0 kg lbm kg lbm 8 . 90 454 . 0 200 = × lbm kg lbm kg 220 454 . 0 100 = ×
Closed and Open Systems • Thermodynamic System: quantity of matter or region in space chosen for study (within boundary) • Surrounding: matter outside the system • Closed System: fixed quantity of mass –system boundary may be moving, - energy may cross the system boundary into the control mass but mass can not.
