A second course in equilibrium thermodynamics. It focuses on the second law and the concept of entropy, which are used to study the conditions of thermal, mechanical and chemical equilibrium, with applications to power cycles, refrigeration cycles and reacting mixtures. The second law is next used to develop the concept of availability or exergy. Finally, both the first and second laws are used to study one-dimensional compressible duct flow.
