CHEM 332

Physical Chemistry: Kinetics and Thermodynamics

Prerequisites: CHEM 252, MATH 223, and PHYS 171. This course is a study of the principles, generalizations, and theories behind modern chemistry. The laws of thermodynamics are discussed in detail and are applied to a variety of problems concerning chemical equilibrium. The tools and theories used to measure and interpret chemical kinetics are also studied. It is recommended (but not required) that CHEM 232 be taken before this course and that CHEM 341 or CHEM 342, Intermediate Laboratory, be elected simultaneously with this course.
