That is why I have been taking notes on everything thermo I can find since June but does anyone have a good list of topics to study?

Basically, take a college level textbook, and go above that. To give you my Thermo Binder Documents would cause a ruckus among my team, but suffice it to say that I have been taking way too many notes. I have the Laws of Thermo, Gas Laws, the Carnot Cycle, a conversion table for every KMS, CGS, PFS and MTS units, the interactions between Le Chatlier's principle and Thermo, Thermo dynamic system, integral thermodynamic calculus, types of heat transfer, practical applications of thermodynamics, the real gas laws, thermodynamic history, and 100+ pages of Wikipedia. I find it to much more advantageous to have no social life and be prepared for any Thermo-philiac with 3 PhD's in the matter.

To give you a hint as to the detail I would go to, here is the Elliott-Suresh-Donohue EOS in expanded form:

(P*Vm)/(R*T) = 1 + 4c((((1.3806485279 * 10 ^-23 J/K)Tc/Pc)* (0.0312 + 0.087(c-1) + 0.008 (c-1)^2) / (1.000 + 2.455(c-1) + 1.732(c-1)^2))*n/V )/1-1.9(((((1.3806485279 * 10 ^-23 J/K)Tc/Pc)* (0.0312 + 0.087(c-1) + 0.008 (c-1)^2) / (1.000 + 2.455(c-1) + 1.732(c-1)^2))n/V) + Zm(1 + k3(c-1)) ((((1.3806485279 * 10 ^-23 J/K)Tc/Pc)* (0.0312 + 0.087(c-1) + 0.008 (c-1)^2) / (1.000 + 2.455(c-1) + 1.732(c-1)^2))*n/V )(e^((1.3806485279 * 10 ^-23 J/K ( (1.000 + 0.945(c-1) + 0.134(c-1)^2) / (1.023 + 2.225(c-1) + 0.478(c-1)^2) ))/ 1.3806485279 * 10 ^-23 J/K * T) – k2)/1+k1(((((1.3806485279 * 10 ^-23 J/K)Tc/Pc)* (0.0312 + 0.087(c-1) + 0.008 (c-1)^2) / (1.000 + 2.455(c-1) + 1.732(c-1)^2))n/V)( e^(1.3806485279 * 10 ^-23 J/K ( (1.000 + 0.945(c-1) + 0.134(c-1)^2) / (1.023 + 2.225(c-1) + 0.478(c-1)^2) )/ 1.3806485279 * 10 ^-23 J/K * T) – k2)

Oh..looks like I am adequately prepared then...

I have no life too!!!!
