12g Example of throttle and HX

Here I go through the two examples of a throttle and a heat exchanger. I look at the energy equation, and solve that. Then I look at the rate of entropy production. It is positive in both cases…

10c Closed system examples

Here I go through two examples of the first law of thermodynamics for closed systems. The first on e is a polutropic process where I calculte the final conditions and the heat and work. The second…

13a Heat engines

Here I introduce the concept of the heat engine. I define the source and the sink. I then use the first and second laws of thermodynamics to derive the Carnot efficiency. I then point out that the…

11b Introduction to the second law 2

Here I describe what is hapenning in the two videos of the kid falling off the bike and the kid falling off the bike in reverse. I describe the natural order of things beign that order decreases and…

11a Introduction to the second law

Here I show a series of irreversible processes. I discuss how in each case high quality energy is converted into lower quality energy and that this is inevitable. I introduce the concept of entropy.

11c Second law processes and the T-s diagram

Here I introduce the T-s diagram for ideal gasses. I show that an isentropic expansion is a vertical upward line on this and an isentropic compression is a vertical downward line. I then show that in…

12f Heat exchangers

I introduce heat exchangers. Then I look at the heat transfer in them from the point of the first law of Thermodynamics. I then explain the irreversibility in a heat exchanger in terms of entropy. I…

10d Open Systems and the SFEE

Here I derive the steady flow energy equation for thermal systems. I show how it can be used for calculating the work in an adiabatic process using the gas laws.

10b Polytropic processes

Here I show that the polytropic process is a good way of describing changes in condition for closed systems with ideal gasses. I look at different values of the exponent, n. Then I calculate some at…

9a The energy equation

Here I introduce the first law of thermodynamics by thinking about the types of energy that we will deal with. I then shpow that these are interchangeable. Finally, I deduce the energy equation.
