Macrostates and Microstates
Sal introduces Macrostates and Microstates in this chemistry video. He shows students that pressure, temperature, and volume are considered to be in the Macrostates category. However, kinetic energy, force, and velocity are considered to be in the Microstates category.

Carnot Cycle and Carnot Engine
The Carnot Cycle is the focus of this chemistry video. Carnot was a French engineer who proved that energy transfers happen in a cycle. They start and finish at the same pressure, volume, and temperature. A system that completes the Carnot Cycle is then known as a "Carnot Engine.
