are given. 
Chapter3 

First Law for Closed Systems:
Problems involving a closed system undergoing a process. Given information
about the initial state, final state and system/surrounding interaction
(such as heat or work transfer), to find the missing quantity with the
help of first law analysis. Similar problems can be found in Chapter3
of most standard textbooks. 
Chapter4 

First Law for Open Systems:

about the inlet state, exit state and system/surrounding interaction (such
as heat or work transfer), to find the missing quantity with the help of
first law analysis. Similar problems can be found in Chapter4 of most
standard textbooks. 
Chapter5 

Heat Engines, Refrigerators and
Heat Pumps Problems involving closed steadysystems, mostly
heat engines, refrigerators or heat pumps. Similar problems can be found
in Chapter5 of most standard textbooks. 
Chapter6 

Entropy and the 2nd Law:
A typical problem may involve entropy calculations such as in entropy change,
entropy generation in a process or a device or an isentropic process. Similar
problems can be found in Chapter6 or 7 of most standard textbooks. 
Chapter7 

Exergy/Availability:
A typical problem may involve determination of availability, useful work
or secondlaw efficiency. Similar problems can be found in Chapter7 or
8 of most standard textbooks. 
Chapter8

generalized charts. Similar problems can be found in Chapter10 or 11 of
most standard textbooks. 
Chapter12 

Gas Mixtures: State,
First Law, and Second Law analysis for mixture of ideal and real gases.
A typical problem may involve determination of the final state and generation
of entropy in a steadystate or a processoriented mixing of two ideal
or real gases. Devices with flow of such mixtures are also covered. Similar
problems can be found in Chapter11 or 12 of most standard textbooks. 
Chapter13 

Psychrometry & Air Conditioning:
State, Mass and First Law analysis involving conditioning of air. A typical
problem may involve the change of state of moist air after cooling, heating,
humidification or dehumidification in a steadystate or processoriented
system. Mixing of two streams of air and cooling towers are also covered
here. Similar problems can be found in Chapter11, 12 or 13 in most standard
textbooks. 
Chapter14 

Combustion: Chemical
reactions between fuel and oxidizer. Application of conservation of mass
and energy to a combusting system, open or closed. Concepts of adiabatic
flame temperature, air fuel ratio, and entropy generation in a reaction. 
Chapter15 

Gas Dynamics: Thermodynamics
of high speed fluid flow is handled here. The gas is assumed to be a perfect
gas (constant specific heats). Problems involving isentropic flows through
converging/diverging nozzles and normal shock waves can be found here.
