Physical Chemistry: Chemical Thermodynamics and Kinetics
At the center of this course is the recognition of Gibbs Free Energy as a fundamental quantity describing physical processes. From this, we will develop concepts of thermodynamics and kinetics, and illustrate them with examples from chemistry.
Sample reading list:
Engel & Reid, Thermodynamics, Statistical Thermodynamics, and Kinetics
Problems will be assigned each week, and these will be an essential part of the course. Reading from the text and handouts will also be assigned each week, typically 30-40 pages.
