Thermodynamics is the science of energy conversion involving heat and other forms of energy, most notably mechanical work. It studies and interrelates the macroscopic variables, such as temperature, volume and pressure, which describe physical, thermodynamic systems.

Introduction to the concept of a mole. Universal gas constant R. PV=nRT
Introduction to Kelvin. Example of a problem involving the ideal gas law
Intuition of how gases generate pressure in a container and why pressure x volume is proportional to the combined kinetic energy of the molecules in the volume.
Example problem involving PV=nRT
Description : A sustainable global community requires the successful integration of environment and engineering. In the public and
private sectors, designing cyclical (‘‘closed loop’’) resource networks increasingly appears as a strategy employed to improve
resource efficiency and reduce environmental impacts. Patterning industrial networks on ecological ones has been shown
to provide significant improvements at multiple levels. Here, we apply the biological metric cycli...
