In this course, the first and second laws of thermodynamics are treated in detail from a molecular perspective. The thermodynamic functions of internal energy, enthalpy, Gibbs energy, Helmholtz energy and entropy are interpreted and applied in studying chemical equilibrium, colligative properties of solutions, phase equilibria in multi-component systems, and ionic equilibria in electrochemical systems. The rates and mechanisms (kinetics) of reactions occurring on surfaces, in solution, and in the gas phase will also be explored from a microscopic perspective.Corequisite: This course must be taken concurrently with CHM 3330 Thermodynamics Laboratory.Prerequisites: CHM1170 General Chemistry II, MAT 2420 Calculus II, and PHY 2510 Physics I, all with a grade of C- or better or permission of instructor.
