    As an essential basic science in engineering education, Thermodynamics should be received as an interesting and inspiring subject. Unfortunately, the fact is different. Some students find Thermodynamics are difficult, hard to imagine and not understandable. If lecturers could tell the relation of Thermodynamics to daily life, it will surely increase students� motivation to learn. With high motivation, the difficult subject will become easier. This paper presents some examples of phenomena or activities in daily life which are viewing using Thermodynamics. Those examples are (1) understanding the importance of specific volume through the anomaly of water, (2) applying the saturation temperature and pressure in a pressure cooker, (3) understand the importance of specific heat in the wind over the sea shore, (4) experiencing how a fluid�s pressure increases by giving work to it, (5) applying the first law of Thermodynamics to determine an Air-Conditioning cooling capacity, and (6) learning how a tire could explode.
