ME 61700 - Applied Thermal Physics And Molecular Spectroscopy
Associated Term: Spring 2024
Learning Outcomes: 1. Model and experimentally characterize the dynamic behavior of non-equilibrium gases as they transition from one equilibrium state to another (e.g., due to chemical ignition, shock heating/compression, and laser radiation). 2. Calculate how energy is distributed (i.e., partitioned) on the molecular level and how many molecules or atoms exist in a given quantum state. 3. Determine the viable mechanisms for transferring energy and inducing chemical reactions via collisions and to calculate how quickly these processes occur and how they evolve in time. 4. Calculate absorption and emission spectra of atoms and molecules and to convert laboratory measurements of said spectra to thermodynamic properties of the test gas (e.g., temperature, pressure, species concentration, velocity).
