GATE 2021 Class Notes – Mechanical Engineering ,THERMODYNAMICS, PDF 

In this blog I will be telling all the Mechanical branch students how to prepare thermodynamics subject for GATE/ IES. As all the mechanical branch aspirants will be aware that Thermodynamics is one of the most important subject for mechanical branch. It is one of the core subjects and the concepts should be clear to prepare for other subjects as well. Other subjects like Refrigeration & air conditioning, Heat and mass transfer and even fluid mechanics also rely on the basics of thermodynamics.

From last year GATE papers :-

The above table shows the marks distribution for GATE paper. It can be seen that the range of marks for this subject varies from 9 to 20, average being 11.7 which is 11.7 % of total marks. Obviously the marks distribution also shows, it is one of the most important subject for scoring well in GATE.
