About the Course

An appreciation of thermodynamics is required to become a chemical and biomolecular engineer. Thermodynamics can assess the viability of a process and is one of the curriculum's most essential topics. The principles are utilized in following engineering courses (kinetics, mass transfer, design, materials) and are applicable to numerous engineering disciplines. The increased emphasis on energy usage and transformation as a result of rising demand, diminishing supply, and global warming necessitates that the engineers who will tackle these issues have a firm grasp of thermodynamics. The first and second laws will be studied in this course. Non-ideal features of single-component and multicomponent systems will be emphasized. A substantial portion of the course is devoted to solution thermodynamics, which is crucial for separations (e.g., distillation, extraction, membranes), and chemical equilibrium, which is crucial for reaction engineering. "A theory is more striking when its premises are simpler, when it relates more diverse types of things, and when its scope of applicability is broader. Consequently, the profound impact that classical thermodynamics had on me. It is the only physical theory with universal content that I am confident, within the range of its applicability, will never be overthrown." — Albert Einstein...

This was an excellent course. The professor was clear, moved through proofs logically and clarified next steps. This was a new course for me, after 30 years of teaching chemistry. I enjoyed the challenge. The course has an excellent pace, and the quizzes were relevant to the work.

It is a very interesting course. It is very complete with the fundamentals concepts and mathematical treatment that help to understand clearly the theory.

I am not finding it interesting to study because in my opinion the speaker requires more energy to deliver these type of courses so the student don't get bored.

This course is not for beginners and is of little educational value. My sense is that this content is extracted from an advanced lab presentation series that was originally intended to accompany a proper lecture course. These presentations are substantially about theorems and proofs, and makes very little effort to educate the viewer on their applicability in real world cases. There are literally no problem-solving sets included in these presentations. Then, after the presentations, during the quizzes, we are asked to solve problem sets. I unenrolled because it's been frustrating to try to learn the subject through this resource, and ultimately YouTube has much better content for people wanting to gain some understanding of thermodynamics.
