Topics include thermodynamic properties of materials, energy balance (First Law) analysis of devices and systems, reversibility and irreversibility, application of Second Law (entropy generation) principles to devices and systems, and analysis of common thermodynamic cycles. Homework, quizzes, and exams: Weekly homework assignments will be due at the beginning of each Wednesday discussion section and will be graded based on demonstrated level of effort. A short homework quiz based on the week’s assignment will be given during each discussion period.
