Entropy and The Second Law of Thermodynamics
 Explain and manipulate the second law [Ch 3.33.6]

 State and illustrate by example the second law of
thermodynamics
 Write both the integral and differential forms of the second
law
 Identify when the open and closed forms of the second law are
applicable
 Determine when each term in the second law is zero or
negligible
 Identify, formulate, and solve simple engineering problems
(such as expansion/compression and power cycles) [Ch 3.53.9]
 Derive and use the mechanical energy balance equation to solve
engineering problems [Ch 3.8]
 Devise and use strategies for entropy change calculations

 Develop hypothetical reversibile paths between two states in
order to calculate entropy changes [Ch 3.13.2]
 Use the heat capacity to calculate entropy changes
 Use tables to calculate entropy changes
 Calculate entropy changes for materials undergoing phase
changes and/or reaction
 Perform power cycle problems [Ch 3.9]

 Solve for the net power obtained and efficiency of reversible
power cycles
 Calculate the coefficient of performance of a reversible
refrigeration cycle
 Correct reversible calculations for real systems using
isentropic efficiencies
