CHEM 313. Physical Chemistry I (with lab). 1 or 3 Hours.

A study of the laws and theories of thermodynamics applied to chemical systems presented from a modern perspective. Theories describe the behavior of energy, heat, work; entropy; reaction spontaneity and equilibrium; equations of state; and phase diagrams. The lab portion studies chemical kinetics using both modern experimental techniques and computer-aided calculations and simulations. Also emphasized is understanding the measurements of chemical reaction rates, from both theoritical and experimental perspectives, while focusing on methods for statistical treatment of experimental data.

Prerequisite: CHEM 214 with a minimum grade of D and (PHY 122 with a minimum grade of D or PHY 142 with a minimum grade of D) and MATH 182 with a minimum grade of D.
