SKPP 2113 Thermodynamics

Image result for THERMODYNAMICS


Thermodynamics is an important basic engineering subject where concepts such as system, boundaries, mass; heat, work and energy are introduced. These concepts are then related using the 1st and 2nd Law of Thermodynamics. In this subject, properties of common substances such as water, air and general working fluids are introduced using properties tables and basic equation of states. The concepts are applied in refrigeration and power cycles. Such basic concepts are vital because they formed the fundamentals of other chemical engineering subjects.


By end of this course, students should be able to:

  1. Determine thermodynamic properties of pure substances from tables of properties and ideal gas equation.
  2. Apply the 1st Law of Thermodynamics to calculate heat, work, and energy for both closed and open systems.
  3. Apply the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics for entropy balance on various systems.
  4. Analyze and calculate the performance of power and refrigeration cycles
  5. Demonstrate leadership skill by guiding team members to plan, analyze, think critically, and collectively solve the thermodynamic-related problems.
