Thermodynamics is that branch of physics which seeks to derive relationships between properties of matter, especially those which are affected by temperature, and a description of the conversion of energy from one form to another. All mechanical engineers must therefore be well grounded in those relationships which describe those energy exchanges, and be skilled in analysing machinery and systems for the energy exchange occurring.
