Thermodynamics

Thermodynamics descibes the macroscopic properties of a large collection of particles.

Some Key Ideas in Thermodynamics

  1. Thermodynamic variables: extensive, intensive, neither;

  2. Equation of state;

  3. Four fundamental laws of thermodynamics;

  4. Thermodynamics potentials;

  5. Phase transitions;

  6. Response;

  7. Stability;

In some sense, thermodynamics is a theory that deals with black boxes. We deal with a large collection of one type of serveral types of particles. Then we manipulate some properties of the system and observing the changes.
