Thermodynamics deals with the relations between heat and other forms of energy such as mechanical, electrical, or chemical energy. Given that mechanical engineering systems are based on energy exchange, you must be well grounded in the relationships that determine these exchanges. In this course, you will learn and apply a range of thermodynamic laws and principles so that you can analyse a given thermodynamic problem (such as the combustion of fuels to release heat and energy, and the translation of this release of energy into movement) and discuss operational features of various thermodynamic systems and components.
