Prerequisite: Math 408C and 408D, or two of the following: Math 408K, 408L, 408M, 408N, 408S; Chem 302 or 302H with a grade of at least C-; Physics 316 and 116L, 303L and 103N, or 317L and 117N. If you do not meet this requirement but still want to take this course, please contact me. Course Summary and Outline: This is an introductory physical chemistry course. I will cover equilibrium thermodynamics and basic statistical mechanics. 1. Introduction : Equilibrium, reversibility, ideal gas, van der Waals gas 2. Energy: Work, heat, temperature, zeroth and first laws of thermodynamics, conservation of energy, enthalpy, heat capacity, state functions 3. Entropy in terms of heat: Reversibility and equilibrium, entropy, entropy interpreted in terms of heat flow 4. The molecular basis of entropy: Statistical basis for the second law, third law, heat engines, entropy of a gas expanding 5. The concept of free energy: Helmholtz and Gibbs free energy, phase equilibrium
