*E-PSCI 112. Thermodynamics by Case Study

Semester: 

Spring
  • Professor: Scot Martin
  • Term: Spring
  • Days: M, W
  • Time: 12:00-1:15
  • School: Faculty of Arts and Sciences
  • Course ID: 161215
  • Subject Area: Earth and Planetary Sciences

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: EPS 112 is also offered as ESE 112. Students may not take both for credit. Undergraduate engineering students should enroll in ESE 112. This course fulfills the EPS sub-discipline requirement of Atmosphere(s) and Oceans. Total class capacity of 18 includes students in both ESE 112 and EPS 112.
