Thermodynamics- science of energy + energy transformation First Law- Energy cannot be created or destroyed Second Law- processes occur in the direction of decreasing quality Three Modes of heat transfer Conduction- transfer of energy from the more energetic particles of a substance to the adjacent less energetic ones as a result of interaction Convection- transfer of energy between a solid surface and the adjacent fluid that is in motion, and it involves the combined effects of conduction and fluid motion Radiation- is the transfer of energy due to the emission of electromagnetic waves Fluid mechanics- science that deals with the behavior of fluids at rest or in motion Sensible energy- portion of the internal energy of a system associated with the kinetic energies of the molecules. Latent energy- internal energy associated with the phase of a system Dynamic forms of energy- forms of energy not stored in a system Flow work- pressure force acting on a fluid through a distance- heat and work require
