Annotation -
The course is meant for students who do not intend to continue in the master study. The subject extends chemical thermodynamics from the Physical chemistry I course to real behaviour. All calculations are preformed with the simplest models of real behaviour.
Last update: Cibulka Ivan (20.08.2013)
Aim of the course -

Students will be able to:

perform simple calculations of state behaviour of real fluids, thermochemistry, phase and chemical equilibria;

understand the thermodynamic principles of heat engines;

understand the use of thermodynamic models for activity coefficients and state behaviour.
