Course Handout Part II
Date: 12-01-2017
In addition to part-I (General Handout for all courses appended to the time table) this portion gives further
specific details regarding the course.
Course No. : BITS F111
Instructor-in-Charge: Dr. Vikranth Kumar Surasani (T)
Instructors : Dr. N Jalaiah (L) Prof. Jeevan Jaidi (T) Dr. Karthik Chetan(T)
Dr. Asma Ahmed (T) Mr. Ramsankar.(T)
Scope and Objective of the Course:
Thermodynamics deals with energy, matter, and the laws governing their interactions. It is essential to learn its usefulness in the
design of processes, devices, and systems involving effective utilization of energy and matter. The course emphasizes on the
fundamentals and concepts of the laws of thermodynamics as applied to control mass and control volume systems.
Irreversibility and availability are powerful tools in the design of thermodynamic systems. Course description includes concepts
and laws of thermodynamics, macroscopic thermodynamic properties, application to closed and open systems, microscopic
approach to entropy, equations of state, and thermodynamics of non-reacting mixtures.
