ME 200 Students,

Since our class tomorrow, Wednesday, January 30th, has been canceled, HW 8, 9 and 10 will now be due on Friday, February 1, 2019, at 11:59 pm. The tutorial room will be closed tomorrow.

Attention Spring 2019 Students!

The 7th, 8th or 9th edition of Moran, M. J., Shapiro, H. N., Boettner, D.D., Bailey, M.B., Fundamentals of Engineering Thermodynamics, Wiley - are all acceptable for all divisions. The text is optional for Division 2.

Course Description

Conservation of Mass, the First and Second Laws of Thermodynamics, and the Engineering Approach to Problem Solving. Work and heat transfer as means for changing system energy. Properties of pure substances, analyses of individual devices, systems and cyclic devices. Entropy, reversible and irreversible processes, device and cycle performance. Application to engineering problems such as IC and gas turbine engines, refrigerators and heat pumps, plus power generation.
Typically offered Fall, Spring, and Summer.

There are four learning objectives associated with this course:

  • To successfully employ the systematic engineering approach to problem solving
  • To master applying the Law of Mass Conservation when analyzing thermodynamics problems
  • To be proficient in the use of the 1st Law of Thermodynamics so you can perform energy accounting when solving thermodynamics problems
  • To be a competent user of the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics so you can solve thermodynamics problems
