CHE 3307 - Foundations of Physical Chemistry
This course covers the fundamental theories of physical chemistry and their application to chemical and biological systems. Specifically, students will be exposed to three different sets of theories including the theories of quantum mechanics and their application to electronic and molecule structure and spectroscopy; thermodynamics theories and their application to energy transfer and chemical and physical equilibrium; and finally kinetic theories and their application to molecular motion, transport properties and chemical reaction rates. The associated laboratory provides hand-on experience to students through the use of experiments that illustrate the application of each of the important theories covered in lecture to real chemical and biological systems.
Course includes a 4-hr laboratory.
Prerequisites Chemistry 1102 or 1104 and Mathematics 1117
