The student, upon successful completion of this course, will be able to:
- Use the laws of thermodynamics to analyze basic power and refrigeration cycles.
- Calculate characteristics of subsonic and supersonic flows through nozzles and diffusers.
- Apply the fundamentals of thermodynamics to inert gas mixtures (psychrometry), reactive gas mixtures, and real substances.
- Apply both fundamental and practical knowledge of thermodynamics to the design of basic power and cooling cycles.
