In this course, you will focus on a specialized area of thermodynamics: the physical properties of moist air as they apply to human comfort. Learn from a nationally respected instructor in the HVAC business as you examine the mechanical control of temperature, humidity and distribution of air mixtures.
After completing this course and all its assignments, you will be able to:
- recognize the four environmental factors involved in comfort;
- define psychrometrics and other terms specific to this specialized area of thermodynamics; and
- create solution schematics for air conditioning processes on a psychrometric chart using mixed air, airflow volume determination, refrigeration capacity, evaporative cooling, and steam injection humidification.
