Last update: Krýsa Josef prof. Dr. Ing. (14.02.2018)
The module belongs among the basic subjects of the study program chenistry and chemical technology. In the frame of this module students obtain the knowledge from the field of phase equilibria of condensed systems, phase equilibria of gas-liquid and liquid -liquid systems, chemical equilibria and electrochemistry. Emphasis is given to theoretical principles as well as to their connection with real processes in chemical industry.
Aim of the course
Last update: Krýsa Josef prof. Dr. Ing. (14.02.2018)

Students will be able to:

  • create phase diagrams of condensed systems for 2, 3 and 4 components
  • create phase diagrams of 2 component gas-liquid and liquid-liquid systems
  • calculate the equilibrium composition for chemical reactions at given pressure and temperature
  • calculate equilibrium potencial of electrochemical system
