ENGR 222 Course Web Page
Course Objectives & Outcomes
The objectives of ENGR 222 are to develop in engineering students the knowledge and skills required to:
explain basic concepts and principles of classical thermodynamics including thermodynamics properties, thermodynamics systems, conservation principles, energy transfer interactions, and entropy.
analytically solve problems by applying conservation principles to thermal-fluid systems and components.
The expected outcomes for students taking ENGR 222 are for student to be able to:
identify open and closed thermodynamic systems.
identify work interactions and heat transfer between thermodynamic systems and their surroundings.
apply simplifying assumptions in formulating and applying the concepts of heat, work, and energy.
determine accurately the thermodynamics properties of simple compressible substances including incompressible substances and ideal gases.
formulate and solve thermodynamics problems involving open or closed systems by applying the principles of convservation of mass, conservation of energy, and the second law of thermodynamics.
describe the thermodynamic property entropy.
analyze and evaluate the thermodynamic performance of common power and refrigeration thermodynamic cycles.
