Introduction to Physical Chemistry

Chemical reactions underpin the production of pretty much everything in our modern world. But, what is the driving force behind reactions? Why do some reactions occur over geological time scales whilst others are so fast that we need femtosecond-pulsed lasers to study them? Ultimately, what is going on at the atomic level? Discover the answers to such fundamental questions and more on this course in introductory physical chemistry. The course covers the key concepts of three of the principal topics in first-year undergraduate physical chemistry: thermodynamics, kinetics and quantum mechanics. These three topics cover whether or not reactions occur, how fast they go and what is actually going on at the sub-atomic scale.

physical chemistry in 11 reviews

This course covers the sort of thermodynamics and kinetics that I got in the second semester of general chemistry, where I was expecting a somewhat more in depth and rigorous treatment akin to an upper division course as physical chemistry would be in a US university.

Excellent introduction to university physical chemistry.

This is a great course for getting to grips with physical chemistry.

If you have a basic chemistry knowledge plus a working knowledge of calculus then this course is an excellent intro to physical chemistry.

5 star cuz i passed This course help me to establish a much more clear understand to the basic theory of the physical chemistry.

Very good introduction to physical chemistry.

This course is suitable for all who want to know Physical Chemistry basically.

Help me to understand one of the part of physical chemistry.
