Course objectives
A. Understanding basic concepts of chemical thermodynamics and kinetics with a relation to previous, simultaneous and following courses. B. Step-by-step development of abstract thinking.
Learning outcomes
After completing this course students will understand, at an introductory level, fundamental concepts of chemical thermodynamics and kinetics. Students will be able to solve corresponding computational exercises and will develop skills to derive basic thermodynamic relationships.
  • (1) Equilibrium thermodynamics. Thermodynamic system and its description, thermodynamic processes, zeroth and first law, heat and work. (2) State functions. Enthalpy, heat capacity, thermochemistry, reaction and formation enthalpy, standard state. (3) Thermodynamic criterion for spontaneity. Entropy, second law, Clausius inequality, Gibbs and Helmholtz function, maximum work, third law, absolute entropy. (4) Ideal and real systems. Combined first and second laws, temperature and pressure dependence of Gibbs function, chemical potential, fugacity, activity, solutions, change of composition. (5) Phase equilibrium. Condition of phase equilibrium, Gibbs phase rule, phase diagrams for one and more components. (6) Chemical equilibrium. Reaction and standard reaction Gibbs function, reaction quotient, equilibrium constant and its temperature dependence. (7) Transport. Diffusion, kinetics of simple reactions, mechanism, activated complex theory, reaction coordinate, activation energy.
