Basic Theory of Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry

Portfolio Description

At this introductory module, fundamental concepts on Thermodynamics and Thermal Analysis concepts and definition are covered.

This lesson is targeted also to students that may be not familiar with thermodynamics. Many details not strictly related to thermal analysis and calorimetry are avoided.  The following concepts are covered:

 What is “Heat”?

What is “Temperature”?

What is a thermodynamic State Function? (and why thermal analysis and calorimetry cares)

The Specific Heat at constant volume CV

The Specific Heat at constant pressure CP

This lesson is offering a comprehensive description of:
