AbstractPractical introduction to important basic experimental methods in physical chemistry. Investigation of qualitative and quantitative relations between physico-chemical quantities of the systems under study.
ObjectiveThe students have to carry out selected experiments in physical chemistry using important measurement methods and devices.
The measured data have to be processed, mostly with the aid of computers, and considering error propagation and statistics.
Detailed laboratory reports have to be written to each experiment.
ContentBasic physical chemistry experiments covering chemical thermodynamics and kinetics, electrochemistry, viscosity and optical spectroscopy.
Computer simulation of physical-chemical phenomena.
