Physical Chemistry for Chemical Engineer Universiti Teknologi Malaysia
This course introduces the fundamental of physical principles that govern the properties and behavior of chemical systems. Three important areas are introduced: review on thermodynamics, electrochemical systems and kinetics. In thermodynamics, students will learn the interrelationship of various equilibrium properties of the system and its changes in processes. In electrochemical systems, electric potential that lead to the determination of thermodynamic properties in the electrochemical cells will be discussed. In kinetics, rate processes of chemical reactions, diffusion, adsorption and molecular collisions are included.
1. Apply the concepts of thermodynamics and chemical kinetics theories to the complex systems. 2. Analyze the properties of various complex systems. 3. Evaluate the thermodynamics properties of complex systems.
