  • 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 ...
