In this module, the first law of thermodynamics is discussed in different systems (open, closed, adiabatic, isolated etc.). We discuss forms of energy, how energy can be transported, different forms of enthalpy as well as intensive and extensive properties. Once these concepts have been introduced, we expand the generic modelling framework to include energy balances. We cover heat of reaction, enthalpy of formation and the different ways to account for this.
At the end of this module, students should be able to formulate energy balances, understand the different forms of energy and how they are transported, and know how to include reactions.
