Concepts of Thermodynamics and Properties of Gases
By the end of this chapter, the student will be able:
- To describe the basic concepts of thermodynamics
- To state the laws of thermodynamics
- To apply the laws of thermodynamics for different engineering applications
- To state the gas laws and solve the related problems
There are different forms of energy; all the energy cannot be used as a work. The convertibility of energy into work depends on its availability, i.e., how much energy can be converted into useful work. Thermodynamics is a branch of science and engineering that deals with interaction of energy mainly in the forms of heat and work. Thermodynamics is concerned with the thermal ...
