RGPV notes CBGS Bachelor of engineering

Objectives :

To develop ability and gain insight into the process of problem-solving, with emphasis on thermodynamics .Specially in following manner: · Apply conservation principles (mass and energy) to evaluate the performance of simple engineering systems and cycles, · Evaluate thermodynamic properties of simple homogeneous substances, · Analyze processes and cycles using the second law of thermodynamics to determine maximum efficiency and performance, · Discuss the physical relevance of the numerical values for the solutions to specific engineering problems and the physical relevance of the problems in general, and · Critically evaluate the validity of the numerical solutions for specific engineering problems.

Outcomes :

At the completion of this course, students should be able to
1. find values of thermodynamic properties in tables;
2. draw thermodynamic processes on pressure-temperature, pressure-volume, or temperaturevolume diagrams; 3. use compressibility charts;
4. calculate expansion or compression work in a closed system;
5. use conservation of mass to determine the change in mass of a system
