Summary  This course first introduces the principles and methods of Classical Thermodynamics and the thermodynamic laws (first and second) in relation to familiar experience of equilibrium, work, heat, and amount of matter. The course shows how Equations of State calibrated on equilibrium data can lead to the identification of Thermodynamic Functions (Internal Energy, Enthalpy, Entropy, Gibbs Energy, Helmholtz Energy and Chemical Potential) and how these can be can be practically retrieved by using also other measurable thermodynamic quantities (specific heat capacity, expansivity and isothermal compressibility). This is delivered in the context of pure ideal and nonideal fluids and ideal mixtures, aiming at the assessment of the performance of single reversible transformations, power generation and refrigeration cycles.

Learning Outcomes
On completion of this course, the student will be able to:
 Understand and apply to reversible and irreversible engineering and natural processes basic thermodynamic concepts about thermodynamic systems, states, properties, functions, work, heat and amount of matter.
 Describe the significance of all essential thermodynamic functions.
 Quantitatively represent reversible engineering processes, including those for power generation, transportation, refrigeration and separation, on suitable diagrams and determine the indicators of performance typical of each system.
 Understand the deviations between ideal vs. real fluid.
