2 What you’ll learn in this course What you’ll learn in this course Thermal Physics: what can temperature do for you? What is Entropy? The universe imposes a limit on our use of energy How do 10e23 molecules work together to produce observable phenomena? Non-ideal solids : everything is broken (eventually) Mechanical waves in matter: collective motion What is sound? Waves that work together. Fluid mechanics: more collective motion of molecules
