UNIT I BASIC CONCEPTS AND FIRST LAW 
Basic concepts – concept of continuum, comparison of microscopic and macroscopic approach. Path and point functions. Intensive and extensive, total and specific quantities. System and their types. Thermodynamic Equilibrium State, path and process. Quasi-static, reversible and irreversible processes. Heat and work transfer, definition and comparison, sign convention. Displacement
work and other modes of work .P-V diagram. Zeroth law of thermodynamics – concept of temperature and thermal equilibrium–  relationship between temperature scales –new temperature scales. First law of thermodynamics –application to closed and open systems – steady and unsteady flow processes.
