Plant Operator Series – Fundamentals of Basic Physics

Basic principles of physics with which all new plant  operators should be familiar: concepts of weight, form, volume, temperature, pressure, density, specific  gravity, condensates, and vapors: conversion of “psi” to “feet of water” and “inches  of mercury” and vice versa; absolute, gauge, and atmospheric  pressure, and vacuum; effects of temperature  and pressure on gas volumes (Ideal Gas Laws); compression and expansion; and the effects of temperature and pressure on liquids, vapors, and condensates.

Prerequisites: Familiarity with multiplication  and division  of whole numbers and the use of fractions and decimals.
