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 can
- calculate heat and energy balances in industrial reactors and processes,
- calculate chemical equilibria between gas mixtures and pure substances and knows the energetic relations of chemical reactions,
- construct and apply various equilibrium and phase diagrams
