Exercises and problems accompanying the course C4660 Basic Physical Chemistry. After completing this course students will understand, at an introductory level, fundamental concepts of theoretical chemistry to real chemical systems with an emphasis on the relationships between the microscopic structure and macroscopic properties of matter. Topics will include quantum theory, chemical statistics, thermodynamics, electrochemistry, and kinetics.
Seminar topics follow the lecture program (C4660), clarifying lecture material and giving the opportunity to develop a critical understanding of the themes and concepts. Twelve optional individual electronic home works accompany the seminar. The points achieved (up to maximum 120) subjoin the seminar points.

Seminar is based on cooperative learning activities by asking students to complete problem-solving tasks. Students work in group of 4 (exceptionally +/-1) on each of 12 (13) projects with a detailed printed form containing tasks and some support. Books, tables, notes, calculator, and notebooks are recommended to use. Numbers of points achieved sum continuously, up to maximum 300 (325), to build the order of all registered students and to decide the final credit assessment (220 points at least).
