Ch 1: Fundamentals of Thermodynamics: Tutoring Solution

The Fundamentals of Thermodynamics chapter of this SAT Physics Tutoring Solution is a flexible and affordable path to learning about thermodynamics. These simple and fun video lessons are each about five minutes long, and they teach all of the thermodynamics laws and principles required in a typical SAT physics course.

How it works:

• Begin your assignment or other SAT physics work.
• Identify the thermodynamics concepts that you're stuck on.
• Find fun videos on the topics you need to understand.
• Press play, watch and learn!
• Complete the quizzes to test your understanding.
• As needed, submit a question to one of our instructors for personalized support.

Who's it for?

This chapter of our SAT Physics Tutoring Solution will benefit any student who is trying to learn about thermodynamics to prepare for the SAT physics subject test. This resource can help students, including those who:

• Struggle with understanding the different types of energy, the laws of thermodynamics, kinetic and potential energy, specific heat or any other thermodynamics topic
• Have limited time for studying
• Want a cost effective way to supplement their science learning
• Prefer learning science visually
• Find themselves failing or close to failing their thermodynamics unit
• Want to excel on the SAT physics subject test

Why it works:

• Engaging Tutors: We make learning about thermodynamics simple and fun.
• Cost Efficient: For less than 20% of the cost of a private tutor, you'll have unlimited access 24/7.
• Consistent High Quality: Unlike a live SAT tutor, these video lessons are thoroughly reviewed.
