PHY 110 - HVACR Physics
The objective of this course is to provide HVACR (Heating, Ventilation, Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration) technicians with an understanding of the physical principles that apply to the HVACR systems that they must maintain and repair. Topics will include temperature, heat, material properties, ideal gas laws, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, electricity, and magnetism. Proper use of measurement equipment and data acquisition systems will be stressed.
Prerequisite(s): Permission of the HVACR Program Coordinator
