MET 244 - Thermodynamics

A study of the property and energy relationships in non-flow and steady flow applications.  Topics include ideal gas relationships, real working substances, the first and second laws of thermodynamics, thermodynamic cycles, and available energy.  The cycle concept is applied to steam power, internal combustion engines, gas turbines, refrigeration, and heat pumps.  Consideration is also given to combustion analysis and heat transfer.

Prerequisite- Corequisite
Prerequisite:  PHY 161 Physics I and MAT 160 Applied Calculus

Credits: 3
2 Class Hours, 3 Laboratory Hours
Course Profile
Learning Outcomes of the Course:

Upon successful completion of this course the student will be able to:

1.  Understand the behavior of single and two-phase substances, and be capable of determining their response to thermal and mechanical energy transfers.
2.  Give an elementary explanation of the First and Second Laws of Thermodynamics, and will understand the implications of these laws for technology, society, and the environment.
3.  Apply the Laws of Thermodynamics to the analysis and design of heat engines and thermal devices.
