•Course Purpose |

Thermodynamics is concerned with physical and chemical phenomena which involve heat and temperature. We learn basic ideas of thermodynamics, their physical meanings and calculation methods. We understand implications of two laws on which thermodynamics is based, and learn that some universal relations between thermal phenomena are deduced from these laws. |

•Prerequisite Subjects |

Mechanics I, Mechanics II, Differential and integral calculus I, Differential and integral calculus II, Mathematics I and exercise |

•Course Topics |

1. Equilibrium and state variables 2. First law of thermodynamics 3. Properties of ideal gas 4. Heat capacity and real gas 5. Heat engine and Carnot's cycle 6. Second law of thermodynamics 7.
