ENGG Lecture
Thermodynamics is the study of heat and power
Terms:
Dimension: A measurable property that cannot be defined in terms of anything simpler
o Primary: The most basic dimension that cannot be reduced to anything simpler
Length [L], Mass [M], Time [t], Temperature [θ], Amount of material [n]
o Derived: Dimensions that can be defined in terms of primary dimensions
Velocity (Lt-1), acceleration (Lt-2), Force (MLt-2), Work (ML2t-2), Power (ML2t-3)
Unit: A way of expressing a dimension.
