Appreciate that thermodynamics is a science of energy considering its all aspects and transformations. Understand the microscopic and macroscopic approaches of thermodynamics. Understand and define the following terms: thermodynamic system, surrounding, boundary, and closed system, open system, isolated system, control mass, and control volume. Distinguish between extensive and intensive properties with examples. Understand what is meant by process and path of the process and be able to define isothermal, isobaric, isochoric processes. Understand the quasi-static process. Appreciate the significance of zeroth law of thermodynamics in temperature measurement.
