Application of the first and second laws of thermodynamics to closed
and open systems and to cyclic heat engines. This includes the development of procedures
for calculating the properties of multiphase and single-phase pure substances. Credits: 3
Calculus 3) and PHY 2048 (Physics with Calculus 1)
This course provides an intermediate level coverage of thermodynamics.
Students will learn concepts such as system and control volume analyses, evaluation of
thermodynamic properties, application of conservation of mass, energy, and the second law
of thermodynamics, the use of entropy, the application of availability and irreversibility to
engineering problems, and analysis of power and refrigeration cycles.
5. Contribution of course to meeting the professional component:
5a. This course supports several program outcomes enumerated in the Mission Statement of
the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. Specific ME program outcomes
supported by this course include: (1) Using knowledge of chemistry and calculus based
physics with depth in at least one of them (ME Program Outcome M1); (2) Using knowledge
of advanced mathematics through multivariate calculus and differential equations (ME
Program Outcome M2); (3) Being able to work professionally in the thermal systems area
(ME Program Outcome M4).
5b. This course consists of approximate percentages of the following components:
mathematics, 10%; physical sciences, 10%; engineering sciences, 80%
6. Relationship of course to program outcomes:
This course achieves the following ABET outcomes [note that the outcome number
corresponds to the respective ABET outcomes (a) through (k)]:
