Course Description: This course explores thermodynamics, the science of the transformation of energy and matter. Thermodynamics deals with foundational principles involving energy and entropy, and it provides powerful methods to work out the general consequences of these principles that apply to any system, regardless of the microscopic detail. Applications include states of matter, chemical reactions, energy efficiency, quantum information, physiology, astrophysics, and environmental science. Thermodynamics sets limits on permissible physical processes, establishes relationships between apparently unrelated properties, and provides an example within physics itself of a field of study that is independent of, though consistent with, a more fundamental field of knowledge. This course introduces the diverse phases of matter and their basic physical properties while providing part of a comprehensive, complete, and coherent program of education in Physics. It is a compulsory subject for a major in Physics.
