I will cover equilibrium thermodynamics and basic statistical mechanics. 1. Introduction : Equilibrium, reversibility, ideal gas, van der Waals gas 2. Energy: Work, heat, temperature, zeroth and first laws of thermodynamics, conservation of energy, enthalpy, heat capacity, state functions 3. Entropy in terms of heat: Reversibility and equilibrium, entropy, entropy interpreted in terms of heat flow 4. The molecular basis of entropy: Statistical basis for the second law, third law, heat engines, entropy of a gas expanding 5. The concept of free energy: Helmholtz and Gibbs free energy, phase equilibrium
