Course Description:

This course provides a basic grounding in the principles and methods of Classical Thermodynamics, gas and vapour cycles. It concentrates on: understanding the thermodynamic laws in relation to familiar experience; phase change, ideal gas and flow processes; using sources of data such as thermodynamic tables and charts. The course also aims to introduce the concepts of Gibbs free energy and chemical potential and to relate these to both phase equilibrium and chemical reaction equilibrium in ideal systems. To introduce the Equations of State. To enable students to calculate heats of reaction and equilibrium concentrations for gas phase reactions using standard thermodynamic data.
