What is Thermodynamics?

Thermo is the branch of physics that deals with temperature and  pressure and how they are related to work and energy.   Thermodynamics  applies to a wide variety of applications such as combustion engines,  heating and air conditioning systems, and jet propulsion, along with many, many others.

Who should enroll in this course?

  • Engineering students wanting to get a head start on an upcoming Thermo course

  • Students currently taking Thermo who need extra examples and explanations

  • Students and professionals who are preparing to take the Fundamentals of Engineering Exam

  • Anyone with an interest in learning about work and energy 

How's this course different from the other online Thermo courses? Why should I enroll in this course?

This course covers all the topics needed to gain an understanding of the basics of thermodynamics.  We will cover:

  • Pressure and temperature

  • Work and energy of closed systems

  • Steam Tables

  • Enthalpy

  • Compressibility charts

  • Ideal gas model

  • Mass flow rates

  • Work and energy of control volumes

  • Thermodynamic efficiencies

  • Entropy

  • And more!

What sets this course apart from others is the number of worked  examples.  Being an instructor of Thermodynamics for many years, I  understand the need for examples.  So many instructors simply show a  solution to a problem or only solve it halfway and just assume the  student knows how to finish it. 

This used to be one of my biggest  frustrations as a student so I can relate when I hear today's students  complain about this.  To prevent this frustration, this course has many,  many fully-worked example problems in a range of difficulty levels. I also don't assume you know more than you do.  We start with the basics and work our way up to more complex material.

Now, what good is learning material if you can't check your understanding, right?  To assist with this, quiz problems are provided  throughout the course.  To check your work, video solutions of each quiz are provided.

In addition, the outline of the notes I use in the videos is provided as a downloadable file to help you follow along during the  course.

Will the material taught  prepare me for other courses?

The relationships between pressure, temperature, density, work and energy are fundamental to so many areas.  As such, this course will prepare you for more advanced topics like

  • Combustion

  • Heat transfer

  • Fluid mechanics

  • Propulsion

  • Aerodynamics

  • And many others

How's the course structured and what prior knowledge is needed?  Do I need a book?

You will have handwritten lectures followed by fully worked examples.  There are NO PowerPoint slides used in this course.  From my experience  students learn best when following along and writing the notes versus  just listening to someone talk while staring at a bunch of slides.  And of course, throughout the class you will have the opportunity to test your knowledge using quizzes.

The examples we cover do use basic concepts from Calculus such as  derivatives and integrals.  In order to understand the material and  examples you should know these concepts.

As for the textbook, I will be using the 8th Edition of Fundamentals of Engineering Thermodynamics  by Moran, Shapiro, Boettner, and Bailey.  ISBN: 978-1118412930.   Although not required, this book is a great resource and I strongly  encourage you to get a copy for yourself.  We will be covering the first  6 chapters of this text.

Thermodynamics and Protein Purification MCQ (Bio Chem)

Examination Preparation and Interview questions on Thermodynamics and Protein Purification Practice (Bio Chemistry)

Created by Manu Mitra - Software Analyst


Students: 2049, Price: $19.99

Students: 2049, Price:  Paid

The thermodynamic free energy is a concept useful in the thermodynamics of chemical or thermal processes in engineering and science. The change in the free energy is the maximum amount of work that a thermodynamic system can perform in a process at constant temperature, and its sign indicates whether a process is thermodynamically favorable or forbidden. Since free energy usually contains potential energy, it is not absolute but depends on the choice of a zero point. Therefore, only relative free energy values, or changes in free energy, are physically meaningful

The free energy is a thermodynamic state function, like the internal energy, enthalpy, and entropy

Protein purification is a series of processes intended to isolate one or a few proteins from a complex mixture, usually cells, tissues or whole organisms. Protein purification is vital for the characterization of the function, structure and interactions of the protein of interest. The purification process may separate the protein and non-protein parts of the mixture, and finally separate the desired protein from all other proteins. Separation of one protein from all others is typically the most laborious aspect of protein purification. Separation steps usually exploit differences in protein size, physico-chemical properties, binding affinity and biological activity. The pure result may be termed protein isolate

These questions will give you basic idea for Examination Preparation and/or interview on Thermodynamics and Free Energy and Protein Purification.

Please Note:

  1. These questions are only for practice and understanding level of knowledge only. It is not necessary that these questions may or may not appear for examinations and/or interview questions

  2. In this practice test, because of large amount of questions (around 14 questions) some of questions may have repeated

  3. I had to put as 70% pass rate because there may also be wrong answers from my side

Thermodynamics – Introduction to Mechanical Engineering

Engineering Thermodynamics / Fluid Mechanics encompassing topics like Pressure Theory, Buoyancy, Fluid flow, Lift & Drag

Created by Learn-Ed Online - Instructor


Students: 1106, Price: $74.99

Students: 1106, Price:  Paid

This course serves as a springboard into Engineering Thermodynamics for new students or as a refresher for students already familiar with some of the concepts and are looking for somewhere to brush up the fundamentals.

The course covers a broad spectrum of common topics that are applicable to a wide variety of situations in numerous engineering sectors;

  • Hydrostatic pressure theory

  • Buoyancy and Archimedes Principle

  • Fluid flow (Reynolds number, types of flow & viscous fluid flow)

  • Bernoulli's Equation

  • Lift and Drag

  • Combustion

  • Thermo power cycles (including the Carnot cycle, Otto cycle & Diesel cycle)

All of these topics are fascinating and are around the A-level to University level in terms of technical content... but don't worry! We cover these topics in a logical order and start off simple so that we do not lose you along the way. Most videos follow the format of a discussion of the theory and then we go through a worked example. We then recommend that students have a go at the practice questions that accompany most videos so that you can put your skills to the test. There are full worked solutions so you are able to check how you perform. 

We at Learn-Ed believe that the format of "Theory - Worked example - Have a go for your self" is one of the best methods of learning - particularly the "Have a go for yourself" element.

We also try to describe various applications that each theory has to help give context as to why its interesting to learn about.

We hope to see you in our lessons!

Note: This course does not replace a formal qualification. Formal qualifications in engineering can be obtained through colleges or universities and these may be of interest to you if you enjoyed this course.

Mathematical tools for thermodynamics 1

For beginners one of the best way to begins thermodynamics, In the form of direct application, with detailed quiz answer

Created by Mohamed Elboudour Elidrissi - Physics Teacher


Students: 442, Price: $69.99

Students: 442, Price:  Paid

This course is reserved for people who have never had a thermodynamics course, or who have never had an advanced course on differential calculus. Anyone can use it just needs a HighSchool Diploma level, this course is presented as a direct application where every detail is explained. Each quiz contains a detailed answer with explanation.

Before any thermodynamics course we need mathematical tools like :

  • The partial derivative
  • Mixed second partial derivative
  • differential form
  • integral of function of two variables
  • notion of state function
  • path integral
  • integrating factor

In this course we present all this concept for beginner

Our method is detailed the calculation from A to Z .

Content and Overview

About 4 hours of classes using a white board as a real university course for total immersion.

We start with a recall about the polar coordinates followed directly by a quiz with detailed correction, after this we attack the notion of partial derivative of a function of several variables, here, for simplicity we will only see the functions of two variables, but to understand for two variables is to understand automatically for several variables, after that, we will see the mixed derivative.

During our course we will see quite a recall on some rules of derivation already seen in high school.

At the end of section 1 we will see an interesting property in thermodynamics, a general result.

In the second part of this course we shall attack the notion of differential forms, very important concept in thermodynamics, we shall see especially the notion of an exact differential form of a function, since all the functions in thermodynamics their differential is exact.

In the third part we will see the notion of "state function", because all the thermodynamic functions are state functions.

Finally part 4 is a great application of that has been seen previously, it is like a summary, but in this part we will also calculate very simple path integrals for beginners, just to see that there exist such integrals, wich may depend on the path taken.

And at the end we will see an example of an integrating factor, which in fact multiplied by a differential form will allow to integrate, hence its name.

Engineering Thermodynamics for University exams and GATE

Students: 197, Price: $19.99

Students: 197, Price:  Paid

Thermodynamics is a fascinating subject. This subject forms the basis for understanding technologies that deal with all the Thermal Prime Movers. The subject is abstract. And the concepts can appear elusive. But the real fun of learning Thermodynamics can be derived only by having firm grip over the concepts. I have not divided this course in sections. The concepts discussed in each video appear in logical sequence.

I should mention a word about one concepts associated with Second Law of Thermodynamics. This concept is that of Entropy. It is my experience that adopting macroscopic view doesn't help students to understand this interesting concept. In Classical Thermodynamics  Entropy appears as a mathematical entity that can be  shown to be a property of the system. But unless one takes microscopic view meaning and significance Entropy does not become clear. So in this course I deviate from the strict discipline of Classical Thermodynamics while discussing Entropy.

It is my hope that student will enjoy this course and  do well in their  undergraduate level examinations as well as in exams such as GATE. In this course I cover all the concepts in Engineering Thermodynamics. Each video will deal with one concept. The videos are short and students can watch them over and over again. My aim is two fold. One, this will help students in their examinations at undergraduate level and two, it will lay foundation for GATE. This course will be revised continuously. Students should watch out for new videos those will be uploaded. These new  videos will discuss the questions/problems asked in GATE.

Physics of Life 1. Thermodynamics

Energy and life

Created by Scott Turner - Physiologist, Scientist, Writer, Media Maker


Students: 181, Price: $19.99

Students: 181, Price:  Paid

Life exists in a world constrained by laws of physics and chemistry. Life is still distinct from the physical world, and this course explores why. The answer lies in the fundamentally biological phenomenon of adaptation. Physics of life thermodynamics is the first of a series of four courses that deal with this question. Physics of light thermodynamics considers such questions as the thermodynamic definition of life, how metabolism works, the thermodynamics of the origin of life, and the thermodynamics of ecology and community structure.

This is not your standard approach to physics.The course is not heavily mathematical, and is geared towards how biology exploits physics in the service of adaptation. 

I assume that you have a basic background in high school physics and chemistry, as well as introductory level college biology.

Animal Physiology 1. Respiration and gas exchange

Energetics, thermodynamics and adaptation

Created by Scott Turner - Physiologist, Scientist, Writer, Media Maker


Students: 159, Price: $19.99

Students: 159, Price:  Paid

This is a course in the physiology of animals, or, to use a common phrase, how animals work.  Animals are, in one sense, machines, and the aim of the science of physiology is to understand how these machines function—what drives them, how they operate, the interaction of the various systems they comprise, and the physical and chemical constraints on how they work.    

Animals are also organisms, and this course is intended to help you understand how animals work as integrated units, i.e. as organisms. We will be concerned with how organisms’ various components work to keep an animal alive, with how these are coordinated, and how the various types of animals, despite their disparate evolutionary histories, solve common physiological problems, sometimes in remarkably innovative ways.     This course is intended for the upper-division biology student. It is also a good course for graduate students and practicing professionals looking for a brush-up course in animal physiology. I presume that you come into this course with the background in chemistry, physics, mathematics and biology that can be reasonably expected of a senior biology student. 

The course consists of about five hours of video clips, parceled into six lectures. This is the first module of four similar courses. This module covers respiration. Subsequent modules cover blood and circulation; digestion and metabolism; and heat and water balance. All four comprise one semester of a two-semester course in animal physiology.

During my college times. I often found my classmates having trouble with Thermodynamics. Many of them even had backlogs when they have cleared other tough subjects like Dynamics Of Machine, Machine Design etc;. However this subject always amused me. The vastness of this subject is what makes it tough in the first place.

What is the importance of thermodynamics in our daily lives?

Heating and cooling systems in our homes and other buildings, engines that power our motor vehicles, even the design of buildings and vehicles, all incorporate information from thermodynamics to make them perform well.

What do we learn from thermodynamics?

Thermodynamics is a part of physics that involves work, heat and temperature that are related to energy, chemical reactions and physical properties of matter. Thermodynamics also deals in studying systems and how they change according to their environment such systems are turbines, engines, nozzles and reactions in closed and open reaction systems.

What is the importance of thermodynamics in engineering?

Thermodynamics is a branch of physics dealing with matter and conversion of energy, conversion of energy into heat and work in particular. Each object of interest in engineering contains matter, therefore, thermodynamics is usually included or indirectly involved in the analysis of almost all engineering problems.

My effort in this course is to simplify the topics in the most suitable way possible. I have divided the topics in very small small bites because I think to eat the whole thing would lead to indigestion :) ENROLL NOW !!

Students: 22, Price:  Paid

This course will teach you how to analyze any thermodynamics problem using the most fundamental form of the major thermodynamic equations (Continuity, 1st Law of Thermodynamics, 2nd Law of Thermodynamics). This approach helps prevent students from having to learn specific equations for specific cases, which often makes thermodynamics give students a headache. While the equations in this course will initially seem more complicated than those commonly found in the textbook, the small added complexity allows the equations to apply to all cases. Therefore, once you learn this fundamental approach, every problem will follow the same steps. Further, once you become comfortable with this approach, I strongly believe you will agree with me that Thermodynamics is not as difficult as it seems.
