Thermodynamics is the science that deals with heat and work and
those properties of substance that bear a relation to heat and work.
Thermodynamics is the study of the patterns of energy change. Most of this
course will be concerned with understanding the patterns of energy
change.The contents include: Introduction, Limitations of First Law, Pure
Substances and Gas Laws, Gas Mixtures and Psychrometry, Power Cycles.
