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.
