The purpose of this course is to help the student to acquire a familiarity with the first and second laws of thermodynamics, the equations of state, perfect gas processes, and various power cycles. The student will develop some skill in applying these principles to the analysis of devices which utilize the power cycles such as the Otto, Diesel, Rankine, and vapor-compression cycles. Conduction, convection, and radiation heat transfer are also introduced.
