This course provides exercises related to gas properties, phase transitions, phase diagrams, and quantum chemistry in order to allow students to get good understanding of physical chemistry and the practical applications.
Students will have the chance to solve practical physical chemical problems through these courses.
At the end of this course, students will be able to:
1) Understand gas properties and principal thermodynamic functions and explain energy changes involved in several physical and chemical reactions and their spontaneity in terms of thermodynamics.
2) Understand phase transitions and phase diagrams observed in various systems on the basis of thermodynamics.
3) Understand quantum chemistry and its applications.
