    The combustion of gas in your car has a thermodynamic process. When chemicals react, the have thermodynamic processes. The absorption of heat by the atmosphere from the sun is a thermodynamic process. Think thermo as heat and dynamics as flow or change.

    This course is a foundation for may majors. Engineers for one will need a Thermo course. And of course Chemistry and Physics majors.

    One of the more interesting is biophysical chemistry. To understand why biochemical processes occur, it is usually necessary to understand the thermodynamics, because they are usually driven by a delicate balance of enthalpic and entropic factors.

    The heat energy in the warm food you put into your refrigerator is absorbed by the refrigerant in the refrigeration system of the fridge. The heat flows from warm to cold, warm food-cold refrigerant, then the heat is transported in the refrigerant and then rejected outside of the fridge by the outside condenser coil either behind or underneath the fridge.
