Advanced General Physics 323/324

Thermal Physics

Overview: There are 4 units on thermal physics ): T1 on the first law of thermodynamics, , T2 on the the second law of thermodynamics, T3 on thermodynamic potentials, and T4 on kinetic theory. T1 is a prerequisite for T2,T3, and T4, while T2 a prerequisite for T3 and T4. Links to the different thermal physics units can be found below.

Textbook:

F. W. Sears and G. L. Salinger, Thermodynamics, Kinetic Theory, and Statistical Thermodynamics

It is your responsibility to either purchase or ensure the availability of this textbook for the units on modern physics. Many other useful textbooks and references on modern physics can be found in the Physics Library and LSM.
