Course Objectives & Outcomes
- The student put more advanced models for chemical changes based on the foundations of thermodynamics.
- The student applies the concepts, methods and techniques for molecular thermodynamics on chemical systems and develops forecasts of such systems.
- The student use statistics physical systems as models to understand more complex systems.
- The student uses statistical thermodynamics to calculate the thermal chemical properties of simple systems.
At the end of this course, the student will be able to:
- Mentions the method of processing the thermodynamic concepts using classical and quantum mechanical models.
- Recognize Statistical thermodynamics.
- Outlines the method to predict the actual values of classical thermodynamic functions using statistical thermodynamics.
- Discusses the laws of thermodynamics using simple statistical models.
- Relates statistical thermodynamics to values for thermodynamic quantities of simple systems with known molecular properties.
- compare simple physical systems with more complex systems;
- Evaluates the role of statistical mechanics in linking microscopic systems with macroscopic thermodynamic properties
