Thermochemistry & Gases in Electrical Engineering?

  • #1
I'm a first year electrical engineering student and in my General Chemistry class, every other week, we're required to write a paragraph about how each weeks material relates to your future career. As I am in electrical engineering, I don't see much relation to any topic. This week is thermochemistry and gases/gas laws. Any tips would be much appreciated.

Welcome to the PF.

I would look into machines and processes that deal with those topics. Look at automated versions of doing that chemistry, and write about the hardware and software to control it all. Try to find real systems that involve the material you are studying, and write about how those machines work and can be improved with more advanced EE improvements.

Maybe something like https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sulfur_hexafluoride_circuit_breaker

semiconductor processing. Much of it is done in very low pressure "vacuum" systems and specific temperatures. Specific gasses are used during parts of the processing so that the proper chemical reactions occur. You can likely find a little material on that subject.

Thanks for that suggestion, really helped me pinpoint an area to cover. Much appreciated.
