The course of “Thermodynamics and Statistical Mechanics” is introducing fundamental aspects of heat flow behavior. It is widely used in the design of heat engine, steam turbines, refrigerator, physical chemistry and chemical physics. Statistical mechanics deals with average effects of large number of individuals.

Students will learn properties and applications of Thermodynamics and Statistical Mechanics; apply concepts of mass, momentum and energy conservation to flows. To get a deeper inside and understanding in to the laws of thermodynamics, the molecular concept of matter can be incorporated into the study of thermodynamics by means of statistical mechanics. The molecular concept of matter can be incorporated into the study of thermodynamics by means of statistical mechanics.However students will learn about the introduction and applications of modern physics.

**Learning Objectives**

To enable students to:

- Understand the origin of heat and temperature
- The basic laws of thermodynamics
- The applications of laws controlling the heat phenomena
- Understand analyses and design the heat engines, various devices and components working on the basis of heat flow.
