Thermodynamics

William K. George
Marcus N. Hultmark
Daniel A. Steingart

Heat and work in physical systems. Concepts of energy conversion and entropy, primarily from a macroscopic viewpoint. Efficiency of different thermodynamic cycles, with applications to everyday life including both renewable and classical energy sources. In the laboratory, students will carry out experiments in the fields of analog electronics and thermodynamics.

Sample reading list:
Moran & Shapiro, Fundamentals of Engineering Thermodynamics, 7th Ed.

Reading/Writing assignments:
Weekly reading assignments and problem sets, about 9 hours per week.

Requirements/Grading:
Mid Term Exam - 20%
Final Exam - 40%
Problem set(s) - 40%

Other Requirements:
Course is required for concentrators

Prerequisites and Restrictions:
PHY 103 and MAT 201. MAT 201 may be taken concurrently..

Other information:
FOR MAE CONCENTRATORS ONLY, a combined laboratory grade will be issued in the spring laboratory course MAE 224, which includes the laboratory work of both MAE 221 and MAE 224. Enrollment in labs will be done using SCORE.
