Hi all.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I was perusing the grad course options for mechanical engineering at a local school when I noticed a course in statistical thermodynamics. I know the difference btw classical, chemical, and statistical thermodynamics, and that MEs generally learn classical.

What are the ME applications of a course in statistical thermodynamics? Is it for those in aerospace or nuclear?

Thnx for any replies,

N
