Course
Descri
p
tion
:
This course introduces second year level mechanical engineering students to the
concept of thermodynamics. It includes various material needed to cover class
ical
thermodynamics. Initially students will be familiar with some concepts and definitions,
properties of pure substance and Thermodynamics tables and charts. The two forms of
energy, work and heat will be introduced. The students will be familiar with cl
osed and
open systems. By then the students will be ready for the concept of first law of
thermodynamics. The second part of the course is to introduce the students to the
second law of thermodynamics, new terms of irreversibility, and availability will be
used.
Course Outcomes;
By the end of this course
,
students should be familiar with the following concepts:
The concept of thermodynamics
Some concepts and definitions on properties of pure substances
Thermodynamics tables and charts
The two forms of ene
rgy: work and heat
Closed and open systems
First law of thermodynamics
Second law of thermodynamics
New terms such as: reversible and irreversible processes, entropy
generation, irreversibility, and availability will be used.

Course relationship to ABET criteria for mechanical engineering prog
rams:
Programs must demonstrate that graduates have:
√
A. Knowledge of chemistry and calculus

based physics with depth in at least one;
B. The ability to apply advanced mathematics through multivariate calculus
differential equations;
C. Famil
iarity with statistics and linear algebra;
√
D. The ability to work professionally in both thermal and mechanical systems areas
including the design and realization of such systems.
Homework Assignments:
Assignments are due at the beginning of
the class period on the specified date;
late
homework will be penalized 1 point/day for a maximum of 4 days and then it will
be awarded a zero grade BUT should hand it in
. Use A4 paper,
print
or write only
on one side of the page. Your name, ID number, sec
tion number and date should be
clearly written on first page. Start each problem on a new page. Never use a red pen in
your work and staple the pages together.
Attendance:
Students are expected to attend
EVERY CLASS SESSION
and they are responsible
for al
l material, announcements, schedule changes, etc., discussed in class. The
university policy regarding the attendance will be strictly adhered to.
