UNIT 1
Introduction
Thermodynamics involves the storage, transformation, and transfer of energy. Energy is
stored as internal energy (due to temperature), kinetic energy (due to motion), potential
energy (due to elevation), and chemical energy (due to chemical composition); it is
transformed from one of these forms to another; and it is transferred across a boundary as
either heat or work. We will present equations that relate the transformations and transfers of
energy to properties such as temperature, pressure, and density. The properties of materials
thus become very important. Many equations will be based on experimental observations that
have been presented as mathematical statements, or laws: primarily the first and second laws
of thermodynamics.
The mechanical engineer‟s objective in studying thermodynamics is most often the analysis
of a rather complicated device, such as an air conditioner, an engine, or a power plant. As the
fluid flows through such a device, it is assumed to be a continuum in which there are
measurable quantities such as pressure, temperature, and velocity. This book, then, will be
restricted to macroscopic or engineering thermodynamics. If the behavior of individual
molecules is important, statistical thermodynamics must be consulted.
System:
We need to fix our focus of attention in order to understand heat and work interaction.
The body or assemblage or the space on which our attention is focused is called system. The
system may be having real or imaginary boundaries across which the interaction occurs. The
boundary may be rigid and sometimes take different shapes at different times. If the system
has imaginary boundary then we must properly formulate the idea of system in our mind.
