## Properties of Heat & Thermodynamics- Chapter Summary

The lessons in this heat and thermodynamics chapter have been put together to help you improve your understanding of the subject. You will study information such as how heat transfers by conduction, Newton's law of cooling, blackbody radiation and Wien's law. Some lessons show you how to perform calculations, such as converting temperatures between Kelvins and Celsius. These lessons will concentrate on helping you:

• Explore the application of the first law of thermodynamics
• Review the law that predicts the behavior of real gases
• Identify how the ideal gas law formula is expressed
• Know the four thermodynamic processes
• Explain the second law of thermodynamics
• Understand what temperature measures
• Analyze how the Carnot cycle works
• Perform calculations using Wien's Law and the Stefan-Boltzmann Law

In these lessons, our expert instructors present the material in a way that is both educational and fun. As you work your way through each lesson and watch the videos, read the transcripts and take the self-assessing quizzes, you will have constant support. If you get stuck on a certain concept or lesson, our instructors are here to help you by answering any questions you might have.
