CHEM 366 Spring 2015 Thermodyamics and Statistical Mechanics

The thermodynamic laws provide us with our most powerful and general scientific principles for predicting the direction of spontaneous change in physical, chemical, and biological systems. This course develops the concepts of energy, entropy, free energy, temperature, heat, work, and chemical potential within the framework of classical and statistical thermodynamics. The principles developed are applied to a variety of problems: chemical reactions, phase changes, energy technology, industrial processes, and environmental science. Laboratory experiments provide quantitative and practical demonstrations of the theory of real and ideal systems studied in class.
Class Format: lecture, three hours per week; laboratory, four hours per week; discussion, one hour per week
Requirements/Evaluation: evaluation is based on class participation, oral presentations, problem sets, laboratory work, and an independent project.
