CHEM 351 - Physical Chemistry I
Fundamental principles of kinetic molecular theory, chemical thermodynamics, chemical equilibrium, phase equilibrium, and chemical kinetics.
Prerequisites: CHEM 220, MATH 230, PHYS 136, all with grade C- or better.
Equivalent Quarter Course: Students who have completed CHEM 3511 and CHEM 3512 will receive credit for CHEM 351.
Possible Instructional Methods: Entirely On-ground.
Grading: A-F grading only.
Course Typically Offered: Fall ONLY
Student Learning Outcomes - Upon successful completion of this course students will be able to:
- molecular theory and apply them to gas-phase equations of state;
- Model heat and work flow in chemical systems using the first law of thermodynamics;
- Utilize the second law of thermodynamics to predict spontaneity of chemical processes;
- Calculate third-law entropies from experimental data;
- Relate thermochemical properties to chemical systems at equilibrium;
- Synthesize and utilize quantitative descriptions of phase equilibrium;
- Model the time-dependence of the evolution of chemical systems using the tools of chemical kinetics.
