View Resource Energy Conservation (Bernoulli's Equation)

Professor Chiang Shih's Thermal-Fluids I course at the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering combines "the traditional thermal disciplines in Thermodynamics, heat transfer and fluid mechanics." This PowerPoint presentation, from Shih's lecture notes, illustrates Benoulli's Equation and energy conservation. Along with mathematical equations, there are also a number of illustrations and examples which...

View Resource Home Energy Audit

This is the first part of a two-part exercise in which students perform an audit and analysis of energy consumption in their homes. This part provides an introduction to the uses of energy in our homes. Topics include major uses in the home (heating, air conditioning, etc.), sources of energy (fossil fuels), and uses in the United States (industry, transportation, etc.). It includes an activity...

View Resource The First Law of Thermodynamics

This lesson builds upon the previous one (Newton's Second Law) by introducing students to kinetic and potential energy. Topics include a brief description of these two forms of energy, a discussion of gravity as a form of potential energy, and a discussion of the First Law of Thermodynamics in the context of energy transfer. The lesson includes an activity in which students test the First Law of...

View Resource Computer Animations of Physical Processes: Thermodynamics

This webpage features a set of eight animations relating to heat and thermodynamics. Topics include Brownian motion, Maxwell distribution, molecular structures, and behavior of gas molecules subjected to heating and cooling. Each image is accompanied by conceptual explanations and calculations. Most also link to videos which more fully explore the phenomena. This item is part of a larger...

View Resource Counting Calories

This article by Paul Doherty, Senior Scientist at the Exploratorium in San Francisco, describes the burning peanut experiment and provides an introduction to food energy and how it is measured. The site presents an explanation of how food energy is converted to other forms in the human body. Also included is a discussion of the first law of thermodynamics and calorimetry with applications to...
