AbstractFoundations of chemical thermodynamics: Entropy, chemical thermodynamics, laws of thermodynamics, partition functions, chemical reactions, reaction free energies, equilibrium conditions, chemical potential, standard states, ideal and real systems and gases, phase equilibria, colligative properties, with applications to current research at the ETHZ.
ObjectiveUnderstanding of entropy and thermodynamic principles.
ContentThe first, second and third law of thermodynamics: empirical temperature and thermodynamic temperature scale, internal energy, entropy, thermal equilibrium. Models and standard states: ideal gases, ideal solutions and mixtures, real gases, real solutions and mixtures, activity, tables of standard thermodynamic quantities. Reaction thermodynamics: the chemical potential, reaction parameters and equilibrium conditions, equilibrium constants and their pressure and temperature dependence. Phase equilibria.
