Type of course
After the course student:
- knows the basic terms and how to use them in thermodynamics, thermochemistry, chemical kinetics, electrochemistry,
- knows the main relationships in Physical Chemistry and how to use them,
- knows the basis of fundamental physicochemical processes,
- is able a direction of physicochemical processes after the change of various parameters, like temperature, pressure, concentration, potential,
- knows which experimental methods one can use in studies of physicochemical processes,
is able to determine the fundamental physicochemical parameters from experimental data
- is able to interpret experimental data and infer appropriate conclusions.
The exam after each semester is in the written form. It is composed of 2 parts: test ( it is necessary to explain the answer chosen) and 7 open questions.
The exam duration: 120 min.
To pass the exam, the student has to receive 50% of total allocated points.
