Description du contenu de l'enseignement

  • Introduction: Ideal Gas. Limits. Definition and basic concepts of thermodynamic (work of pressure force, heat, internal energy.)
  • First law of thermodynamics : Application to a closed system – extensive properties balance – open system - particular thermodynamic processes (isochoric, isothermal, isobaric and adiabatic)- ideal and real gaz- specific heat - calorimetry.
  • Second law of thermodynamic: Clausius theorem - entropy - close system and open system- thermodynamic efficiency - application to a thermodynamic process – thermodynamic diagram (Clapeyron, Mollier) - Thermal engine (compression, expansion, Carnot cycle) – thermodynamic cycle.

Compétences à acquérir

The student understands the concepts of heat and work and the related thermodynamical functions. He is able to apply these through the 1st and 2nd law of thermodyanmics in simple cases.
