Learning Outcomes: 1. Apply the First Law of thermodynamics in the analysis of closed and open systems. 2. Apply the Second Law of thermodynamics in the analysis of closed and open systems, and reversible and irreversible processes, including power cycles. 3. Derive and apply thermodynamic relations and relationships between thermodynamic potentials. 4. Estimate the physical properties of ideal and non-ideal fluids. 5. Use chemical potentials, fugacities and activity coefficients to analyze the phase equilibrium behavior of ideal and non-ideal fluids. 6. Use chemical potentials, fugacities and activity coefficients to evaluate single and multi-component chemical reaction equilibria for ideal and non-ideal fluids. 7. Utilize computational tools in the solution of thermodynamics problems).
