OBJECTIVES: 1. To define parameters affecting the behavior of thermodynamics systems.

2. To explain the theories of 1st, 2ndand 3rdlaws of thermodynamics.

3. To explain the theories of thermodynamics for liquid, mixture solution, gas and chemical equilibrium.

4. To relate the knowledge of thermodynamic with weather.

LEARNING OUTCOMES:

 

Upon successful completion of this course students should have the ability to:

1.     Define parameters affecting the behavior of thermodynamic systems (C1-PO1).

2.     Express the Theories of 1st, 2nd and 3rd Laws of thermodynamics (C2-PO1).

3.     Demonstrate the knowledge in thermodynamics principles of liquid, mixture solution, gas and chemical equilibrium (C3-PO3).

4.     Relate the knowledge of thermodynamic with weather (P1-PO1)

TRANSFERABLE SKILLS: Students should be able to develop good written and interpersonal communication, team work and leadership, problem solving, planning and organizational skills through a process of lectures and tutorials.
TEACHING-LEARNING AND ASSESSMENT STRATEGY:

 

Teaching-learning strategy:

·         The course will be taught through a combination of formal lectures, assignments, group work, blended learning using authentic materials, informal activities and various textbooks.The use of test and examination will assess the student’s ability to apply theoretical concepts in context.

Assessment strategy:

·         Formative

·         Summative

SYNOPSIS:

 

This course introduces fundamental aspects of Thermodynamics in chemical engineering for industrial purposes.  Students will gain an understanding of the basic principles of Thermodynamic Laws and able to apply the theories to solve the problems in real situation. Topics will cover energy transfer, work, heat; First, Second and Third Laws; thermodynamics properties of liquid, mixture, vapour and equilibrium.
MODE OF DELIVERY: Lecture, industrial visit, group work, online assignment etc.
