CHEM 445 Physical Chemistry 2

Underlying physical principles that govern the properties and behavior of chemical systems will be addressed. These 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 and MATH 166; PHYC 110 and PHYC 112 or PHYC 120 and PHYC 122.
