Statistical Thermodynamics

Molecules to Machines

Modern engineering research focuses on designing new materials and processes at the molecular level. Statistical thermodynamics provides the formalism for understanding how molecular interactions lead to the observed collective behavior at the macroscale. This course will develop a molecular-level understanding of key thermodynamic quantities like heat, work, free energy and entropy. These concepts will be applied in understanding several important engineering and biological applications.

every other equation in one review

Every other equation introduces new terms with no basis for understanding them.

formulas come out in one review

Formulas come out of nowhere and the explanation of the conceptual theory is very thin.

any explanatory information in one review

The lecture does not have any explanatory information.

apparently also unsupported in one review

This is apparently also unsupported as the discussion is not active.

equation introduces new in one review

in-depth future study in one review

Great way to get a broad overview of the terrain for more in-depth future study.
