Engineering Thermodynamics

What you’ll learn

Explain how engines, power plants, and HVAC systems work.
You will know and be able to explain the 1st and 2nd laws of Thermodynamics
You will be able to analyze a Thermodynamic system and calculate things like efficiency.
You will learn what you need to know to pass a standard engineering Thermodynamics course

Engineering Thermodynamics


Basic algebra skills
Some very basic knowledge of Chemistry


Thermodynamics is the study of energy. How do we get the energy we need to power our homes and get us where we want to go? How do things like engines, power plants, and refrigerators work? This class is very important for many types of engineers. I have designed the class so that anyone who is interested in learning Thermodynamics can learn. This course will be greatly helpful to all college students who are taking Thermodynamics or will take it in the future. I can help you pass and be a success! But this is also great for anyone who wants to be more educated about energy – a very important topic these days! I stay away from overly complicated theory and give you both the HOW and the WHY. You will understand Thermodynamics with my help!
