ENGR& 224 Engineering Thermodynamics (5)

(Formerly ENGR-260) Introduction to principles of thermodynamics from a predominantly macroscopic point of view. Development of the basic laws of thermodynamics and their application to energy transformation and state changes in engineering problems. Topics include work, heat, energy, entropy, specific heat, open and closed system analysis, and applications to devices and systems. Simple power and refrigeration cycles, including Carnot, Otto, Diesel, Brayton and Rankine are introduced.

Prerequisite: PHYS& 221 (may be taken concurrently) and MATH& 152 and CHEM& 161
