1 Basic Physical Chemstry (CHM 222) Instructor : K. Srihari 1 office : FB 435 ✆ : 7043 email : [email protected] Course outline This course is about classical thermodynamics and kinetics. A number of books exist and a brief list is provided at the end of this handout. We will essentially follow the book by Berry, Rice and Ross. The second edition of this book is available and very affordable. Our library also has copies of this book. The numbers in the c;l indicate, approximately, the number of lectures (l) to be given on that particular topic and the specific chapter (c) of BRR that you should consult. ➫ Zeroth law of thermodynamics and temperature 12;3 ➫ First law of thermodynamics 13;2 ➫ Concept of entropy 15;2 ➫ Second law of thermodynamics and applications 16,17;6 ➫ Third law of thermodynamics 18;2 ➫ Nature of equlibrium and intro to nonequilibrium 19,20;4 ➫ Gases-ideal and real 21;3 ➫ One component phase equlibria 24;3 ➫ Collisions and kinetic theory of gases 27,28;6 ➫ Chemical kinetics 30;8 ➫ Advanced topics in kinetics 31;4 Note that the number of lectures in a given topic might be less or more depending on factors that are hard to guess right now. Extra readings and other handouts, when necessay, will be put up at copy point. 2 2 ✓ Grading policy ✗ There will be regular homeworks in this course (approximately one every two weeks). Collect assignments at copy point. Three exams will be given. The first and final exams will be in class closed book/notes exam. The second exam will be open book/notes. The homeworks will account for 20%, the midterms 20% each and the final will be worth 40% of the final grade. 3 References ❏ R. S. Berry, S. A. Rice and J.
