*Engineering Sciences 112. Thermodynamics by Case Study

Fundamental concepts and formalisms of conservation of energy and increase of entropy as applied to natural and engineered environmental and biological systems. Pedagogical approach is to start with real-world observations and applications, extracting the underlying fundamentals of thermodynamics from these.
Notes: Engineering Sciences 112 is also offered as Earth and Planetary Sciences 112. Students may not take both for credit. Undergraduate engineering students should enroll in ES 112. Total class capacity of 12 includes students in both ES 112 and EPS 112.
