Thermal physics

IB Physics: Thermal physics

Thermal physics combines concepts on a macroscale, such as thermodynamics, and microscale, with consideration of the kinetic energy of individual molecules. The gas laws provide scope for some interesting practical work with verification from simulations possible, and budding engineers will enjoy a glimpse of engine cycles (prior to the Engineering Option). Choosing to derive the ideal gas laws and the relationships...
