Annotation -
The subject covers elementary parts of physical chemistry (i.e. basic ideas and quantities, state behaviour, fundamentals of thermodynamics) which are followed by chapters on phase equlibria and chemical equilibria. Basic principles of behaviour and properties of electrolytes are introduced. The final part is devoted to kinetics of chemical reactions.

Aim of the course -

Students will be able to:

  • calculate the state behaviour of gases at low pressures,
  • use basic thermodynamic functions,
  • calculate heats of reactions and solve chemical equilibrium for simple reactions,
  • understand basic phase equilibrium diagrams and solve vapour-liquid equilibrium for ideal systems,
  • calculate basic types of chemical kinetics
