    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course covers the fundamentals of thermodynamics. It takes basic concepts from general chemistry that were simply accepted and provides mathematical proofs for how these concepts actually work. This course was integral to understanding the computational methods that govern the thermodynamics in the universe.

    Course highlights:

    Given that I am interested in healthcare, the highlights for me were when we discussed the principles of thermodynamics as they apply to the human body. For example, we discussed the energy that can come from eating a granola bar, and the amount of work that an individual can do post consumption of the granola bar, assuming all the energy is used for that work and not shuttled to other cellular processes.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay on top of the material. The best thing to do is to study the subject every day, and focus on understanding the broad, general concepts and then apply the mathematics to them.
