Compulsory course in Sustainable metals processing and Creative Sustainability (CHEM) majors
Thermodynamics of pure substances and energetics of chemical reactions and their reactions with simple gas mixtures. Applications of the developed skills to the industrial applications including heat/energy balances.
After the course the student will be able to
1 Know the meaning of and interrelation between different thermodynamic
2 Describe the laws of thermodynamics in relation to chemical reactions
3 Show the relations between thermodynamic properties and phase equilibria
4 Calculate thermodynamic properties (Entropy, Enthalpy, Heat capacity, Gibbs
energy, Volume) of materials and reactions as a function of temperature
5 Solve heat balances in industrial reactors based on thermodynamic data in
order to develop sustainable chemical and metallurgical processes
6 Interpret simple phase stability diagrams
