1 ME 200 – THERMODYNAMICS I COURSE POLICY – Fall 2011 ME 200 Website (https://engineering.purdue.edu/ME200/)Division 1: 3:30 pm, S. Naik ([email protected]) Division 2: 1:30 pm, E. Bae ([email protected]) Division 3: 10:30 am, P. E. Sojka ([email protected]) Division 4: 7:30 am, H. Mongia ([email protected]) Division 5: 8:30 am, J. Abraham ([email protected]) 1. OBJECTIVES:The objectives of this course are as follows: To provide a thorough understanding of the basic concepts of classical thermodynamics; To apply the basic concepts of classical thermodynamics to the solution of practical problems; To develop the skills necessary for a systematic approach to problem solving; To cultivate a strong work ethic in students. 2. TEXTBOOK:Moran, M.J., Shapiro, H.N., Boettner, D. D., and Bailey, M. B., Fundamentals of Engineering Thermodynamics (7thedition), John Wiley, 2010. 3. PREREQUISITES:The material in ME 200 is based on the understanding of: (1) calculus, including ordinary differentiation, integration, and partial differentiation; (2) physics, including Newton’s laws, concepts of work and energy, simple DC circuits, gravity, and simple electricity and magnetism; and (3) chemistry, including concepts of moles, molar mass (molecular weight), and the ideal gas law. Consequently, students must have successfully completed CHEM 115 and PHYS 172, in addition to MA 261 before or concurrent with enrollment in ME 200. If you cannot meet these requirements you should drop this course immediately. 4. ASSIGNMENTS:The course syllabus is attached to this course policy handout. The course syllabus provides a detailed listing of the topics to be covered in each lecture, along with the reading and homework assignments for the entire semester. As basic preparation for each lecture, you should read the assigned sectionof the textbook before coming to class. Homework problems are illustrative of the general material and of problems found on examinations. However, exam problems are designed to test your understanding of thermodynamicsso they will not be “just like the assigned homework problems.” In addition to the weekly reading and homework assignments, you should review your class notes on a daily basis. You are responsible for all material listed in the syllabus and discussed in lecture. Finally, your instructor may not cover every single topic on the course syllabus in the order that it is listed, or may not have time in lecture to cover all the material listed in the syllabus. You are still responsible for all the material that is listed in the syllabus.
