MECH 310 – AUB – Package 1
This course discusses the fundamentals of thermodynamics. You will learn how to solve thermodynamic problems through the application of thermodynamic laws. You will cover concepts related to pure substances, PvT diagrams, internal energy, work, heat and entropy.

Thermodynamic Tables And Charts
In this section you will find all the thermodynamic tables and figures used in solving all thermodynamics problems in this course. In order to practice for your exam make sure to refer to the course tables as they might slightly differ in format. Note however that only small differences in the answers will be observed by using another reference table.
