Course Description The first law of thermodynamics, enthalpy, heat capacity, heat of reaction, combustion and fuels, flame temperature, second law of thermodynamics, entropy and the criterion for equilibrium, third law of thermodynamics, variation of entropy as a function of temperature, free energy, equilibrium in thermodynamic systems, phase equilibrium in a one-component system, standard Gibbs free energy change, equilibrium constant, oxidation reactions, Ellingham diagrams, reduction of oxides. Course Outcomes 1 - Using the first law of thermodynamics, under constant pressure calculate enthalpy change(=heat energy) of a substance or reaction with changing temperature, 2 - Calculate optimum combustion conditions of a fuel, 3 - Calculate energy balance in basic metallurgical and materials engineering processes, 4 - Using second and third law of thermodynamics; calculate change of entropy as a function of temperature, 5 - Examine phase equilibrium in a one-component systems by means of free energy 6 - Calculate thermodynamic equilibrium conditions of systems and to determine whether a chemical reaction is thermodynamically possible. 7 - Calculate the equilibrium composition of reactions. 8 - Ability to determine oxygen, sulphur, etc. affinity of metals and compare stability of metal oxides, sulphids with each other. 9 - Ability to select proper reductant and temperature for processes.
