Physical Chemistry I

In this course, the student will learn about the three laws of thermodynamics, thermodynamic principles, ideal and real gases, phases of matter, equations of state, and state changes. The student will also take a look at chemical kinetics—a branch of study concerned with the rates of reactions and other processes—as well as kinetic molecular theory and statistical mechanics, which relate the atomic-level motion of a large number of particles to the average thermodynamic behavior of the system as a whole. This free course may be completed online at any time. See course site for detailed overview and learning outcomes. (Chemistry 105)
