2.0 SYNOPSIS

Thermodynamics is commonly encountered in many engineering system. This course
covers the knowledge of science of energy especially the aspect of heat and power
interaction, energy and energy transformation and relationship among the properties
of matter. Student will be equipped with the conservation of energy principle, the
first law and the second law of thermodynamics. Other topics include the properties
of pure substance, application of the first and second law of thermodynamics in open
