2021-2022 Graduate Catalog

CHEM 545 Physical Chemistry 2

Underlying physical principles that govern the properties and behavior of chemical systems will be addressed. Concepts will include the thermodynamic (classical and statistical) description of chemical processes and properties of solids, liquids, gases, and solutions. Concepts such as heat, work, enthalpy, entropy, and free energy will be taught. Understanding these physical chemistry principles will provide the basic framework for all other branches of chemistry. Prerequisite: CHEM 232; MATH 166; PHYC 110 and 112 or 120 and 122. Not open to students who have credit in CHEM 445.
