COURSE DESCRIPTION EGR 353. Thermodynamics (3 hours lecture): Study the first and second law of thermodynamics and their applications to the analysis of processes involving the control and utilization of energy, properties and behavior of pure substances, ideal gases, and mixtures; heat engine and refrigeration cycles. Prerequisites: CHM 262, MTH 220, and PHY 245, each with a grade of C (2.0) or better. (3). TEXTBOOK AND MATERIALS

Engineering Thermodynamics, Engineering approach 7th edition By, Yunus A. Cengel and Michael A. Boles, Mc Graw Hill
Course Objective 1. To introduce the basic concepts in thermodynamics of heat, work, and energy in conjunction with their analysis. 2. To make student learn topics such as thermodynamic properties of real and ideal substances. 3. To develop an understanding of conservation equations: mass and energy balances. 4.To develop understanding of second law and entropy 5.To introduce topics such as Power cycles Student Learning Outcome (After completion of the course, students will be able to) Apply the basic concepts to solving thermodynamic problems Understand relationship between the properties and behavior of substances within a system Apply first law of thermodynamics to providing solutions to thermodynamic problems Apply second law of thermodynamics to providing solutions to thermodynamic problems Develop problem solving skills in power cycles

GENERAL REQUIREMENTS The course meets for lecture two hours and 30 minutes two times a week. Attendance will be taken during each lecture. “To maintain highest standard of intellectual integrity, cheating, plagiarism, fabrication, falsification, or aiding and abetting dishonesty by another person WILL NOT BE TOLERATED. Such transgressions may result in action ranging from no grade in that activity to failure of a course, at the discretion of the professor” Rescheduling of test will only be done under special circumstances and by obtaining written approval from the instructor before the scheduled test date. Instructor may deduct 10-25% point for late exam. THERE WILL BE NO MAKE-UP QUIZZES Academic Policies: Please refer to the Academic Policies of the university (pages 35-44 of UM-Flint 2010-2011 catalog) for other policies.

All tests are comprehensive. Students are required to complete all homework to ensure the subjects discussed in lecture are understood. applications. Tests (30%): Tests will be given to evaluate the student’s understanding of the course topics. covering all course topics in this syllabus. Assistance is available in the office of Accessibility Services in 264 UCEN. various learning strategies that embrace integrity of learning will be employed to ensure that no student is excluded in the learning process. I have also incorporated a variety of evaluation methods in the course process. Homework is the student’s responsibility. Final Examination (30%): The final exam will be comprehensive. formula. Attendance/ Class Participation(5%) : Class attendance is required and may be periodically recorded. Students are also free to offer suggestions about how I can better meet their needs as we make progress in the class. Each of the learning outcomes must be related to the appropriate theory. formula sheet which must be turned in with exam sheet may be allowed. Quizzes (15%): Quiz will be given to students on regularly basis from topics covered in class. understood by fellow students and the professor. A solution will include: design conditions (data given). It is my expectation that students who require specific or additional supports in acquiring the course content or demonstrating their achievement of the objectives will inform me of such needs immediately. 762-3456. As a result. Final grades will be assigned using the proportional system shown below: Homework 20% Quizzes 10% Tests 30% Final Paper 5% Final Exam 30% Attendance 5% GRADING SYSTEM: Grades will be based on the following scale: 97-100 A+ 74-76 C 94-96 A 70-73 C90-93 A67-69 D+ 87-89 B+ 64-66 D 84-86 B 60-63 D80-83 B<60 F 77-79 C+ TENTATIVE COURSE SCHEDULE (Test/Quiz dates are in bold) EGR353: Thermodynamics Fall 2011 syllabus Page 2 of 5 . Homework (20%): Homework will be assigned covering each topic. In spite of these efforts. situations may occur in which the learning style of individual students is not met by the instructional climate. Final Paper and Presentation (5%): Each student will be required to write a final paper that will cover student learning outcomes listed in the syllabus. assumptions. to include prerequisite and related courses. Students will not be allowed to use the textbook during the exam.I have the intention to support the full participation of all students in the learning process of this class. sketch and answer. example and rationale about how the learning outcome has been met along with the level of competency gained by the student on that specific topic. there may be additional unannounced quizzes to evaluate learning of the lecture materials. Students are strongly encouraged and required to participate in the lectures through class discussions and questions or comments in class. however. Homework assigned on one class is due at the beginning of the next class. Quizzes are close book/note and expected to last for approximately 15 minutes. Students cannot reasonably expect to master the course materials without regular attendance and participation in the class. tests and homework must be logical. A standard solution approach will be required for assignment. derivations. homework and test problems to support clear and concise communication of information. Solution Methods: Solutions to problems solved on assignments. In addition to the quizzes listed in the syllabus.
