A classical thermodynamic treatment of states of matter, activities and chemical potentials, energy changes, equilibria, and electrochemical processes. The kinetics of multi-step, catalytic and enzyme reactions.

Some time ago the topics in CH 431, Physical Chemistry I, and CH 433, Physical Chemistry II, were rearranged such that those topics requiring a greater mathematics background would appear in Physical Chemistry II.  CH 431 now contains quantum theory, molecular spectroscopy and statistical thermodynamics, while CH 433 now contains classical thermodynamics and kinetics.    This action updates the catalog description and the student learning outcomes to reflect the current course material.  In addition, this action changes the frequency of the course offering, as the course will no longer be offered in the summer.

Student Learning Outcomes

  1. Analyze the validity of equations of state for ideal and non-ideal behavior using experimental data.

  2. Define the activity of a species in different environments and relate activity to vapor pressure, concentration and activity coefficients.

  3. Determine activities and chemical potentials for gas phase mixtures, solutions and solids.

  4. Apply activities and chemical potentials to phase transitions and equilibria between phases.

  5. Determine the efficiency of engines or processes using energy and entropy considerations.

  6. Apply energy, enthalpy, entropy and chemical potential considerations to analyze chemical reactions under equilibrium and non-equilibrium conditions, and at different temperatures and pressures.

  7. Search the National Institute of Standards databases for thermodynamic information as a function of temperature and pressure, and apply the information to chemical reactions.

  8. Derive the Nernst equation for the electrochemical potential of species in solution.

  9. Apply the Nernst equation to reactions in solution, electrolysis, and to different types of batteries and fuel cells.

  10. Determine rate laws from experimental data.

  11. Describe one-step reactions using transition state theory and collision theory.

  12. Propose mechanisms and determine rate laws for complex, multi-step reactions using steady state and equilibrium considerations for elementary steps.

  13. Analyze enzyme-substrate reactions by determining rate laws for proposed multi-step processes.

  14. Apply proposed mechanisms to atmospheric processes, surface reactions and homogeneous catalysis.

  15. Develop and present an oral presentation on a contemporary energy topic and relate analysis of the topic to the thermodynamic and kinetic principles presented in the course.
