Tuesday 9 10 Class time M W 10 45 11 35 EMCB 105 Prerequisites PHYS 2210 and MATH 1220 Text Yunus A Cengel and Michael A Boles Thermodynamics An Engineering Approach 5th or 6th Edition McGraw Hill Homework Homework will generally be assigned on Wednesday and due the following Wednesday at the end of class Hand in your assignment at the end of the lecture to avoid a string of over 100 students walking to the front of class at the beginning of the lecture Late homework will be graded at 50 No credit for homework 1 week late or later Lecture Notes A nice set of lecture notes is available electronically These were prepared by Prof Geoff Silcox in Chemical Engineering Since the course content is consistent regardless of which department is teaching the course these will provide a good additional reference Lectures in this class will closely follow these notes They are available as PDF files at www eng utah edu mcmurtry Notes Course Content and Objectives Thermodynamics is the study of energy and its transformations It is a fundamental science that is part of the foundation of all engineering disciplines including power generation heating and cooling fluid mechanics and hydraulics heat transfer process engineering combustion and environmental engineering This course will cover thermodynamic properties open and closed systems equations of state heat and work the first law of thermodynamics the second law of thermodynamics the Carnot cycle and introduction to power and refrigeration cycles By the end of this course you will be able to 1 Demonstrate effective approaches to solving homework problems and presenting solutions 2 Convert between english SI and metric units systems 3 Define concepts of a system b surroundings c intensive and extensive properties d equilibrium e heat f work g state functions and h path functions 4 Apply the rate form and the accumulation form of the accounting equation to the extensive properties of mass energy and entropy to solve practical engineering problems 5 Analyze and solve thermodynamic problems involving the ideal gas phase change fluids and incompressible substances 6 Draw and label processes on standard thermodynamic diagrams 7 Apply the concept of efficiency to calculate actual work input or output 8 Define reversible and irreversible processes and state what makes a process irreversible 9 State the significance of entropy and entropy generation 10 Calculate the change in entropy of a system and its surroundings as it changes from one state to another 11 Analyze steady reversible flow processes using the combined energy and entropy balance 12 Use the concept of adiabatic efficiency in the specification or process equipment 13 Apply energy and entropy balances to analyze power and refrigeration cycles Grading Points for homework and exams are as follows Two one hour exams 25 each One final Exam 40 Homework 10 Grading Scale Percentage 95 100 90 95 85 90 80 85 75 80 70 75 65 70

need accommodations in the class reasonable prior notice needs to be given to the Center for Disability Services http disability utah edu index htm 162 Olpin Union Building 581 5020 V TDD CDS will work with you and the instructor to make arrangements for accommodations Examinations All examinations are comprehensive Useful tips on taking tests and information on reducing test anxiety are found at http disability utah edu test htm All exams are open book open notes open homework To receive full credit for your solutions you must write out all equations that you use and must state all values substituted in those equations You must show all work to receive Chemical and Mechanical Engineering 2300 1 Thermodynamics I Spring 2007 Patrick McMurtry mcmurtry eng utah edu Lecture and Exam
