This book presents learners with the fundamental concepts of thermodynamics and their practical application to heat power, heat transfer, and heating and air conditioning. It addresses real-world problems in engineering and design - rather than focusing on abstract mathematics. Chapter topics include the thermodynamic system; work, heat, and reversibility; conservation of mass and the first law of thermodynamics; equations of state and calorimetry; availability and useful work; the internal combustion engine and the Otto and Diesel cycles; gas turbines, jet propulsion, and the Brayton cycle; steam power generation and the Rankine cycle; refrigeration and heat pumps; and much more.For use in engineering technology programs.The reader is then shown how to proceed with calculations to obtain quantitative answers. ... In chapter 1, material is presented that is expected to set the stage for the sequence of study in thermodynamics. ... In chapter 2, the idea of a system is introduced and emphasis is placed on identifying important properties of theanbsp;...
