After taking this course students should be able to state the First Law and to define heat, work, thermal efficiency and the difference between various forms of energy; to identify and describe energy exchange processes in aerospace systems; to explain at a simple level how various heat engines work; to apply the steady-flow energy equation or the First Law of Thermodynamics to a system of thermodynamic components to estimate required balances of heat, work and energy flow; to explain at a non-technical level the concepts of path dependence/independence and reversibility/irreversibility of various thermodynamic processes and to represent these in terms of changes in thermodynamic state; to apply ideal cycle analysis to simple heat engine cycles to estimate thermal efficiency and work as a function of pressures and temperatures at various points in the cycle.
