Unformatted text preview: undergraduate programs. The two notable exceptions are Aerospace Engineering and Chemical Engineering. Both these departments have their own introductory thermodynamics courses. Aerospaces introductory thermo course uses the ratio of specific heats, k, in most of their derivations and treats k as constant. Justify this by demonstrating that k for air is constant over a wide range of temperatures. In particular, determine how much does k change (%) in going from 250 K to 1000 K? How does this compare to how much c v and c p change (%) over the same temperature range? 5. Why does chemical engineering have its own introductory thermodynamics course?
