CHEM 424 - Thermodynamics and Kinetics Laboratory

(2 units)
Training in laboratory techniques provided by experimental verification of the principles of physical chemistry. Topical focus is on chemical thermodynamics and kinetics. Credit allowed in only one of CHEM 423 or 424.

Prerequisite(s): CHEM 421 .

Units of Lecture: 1
Units of Laboratory/Studio: 1
Offered: Every Fall and Spring

Student Learning Outcomes
Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:
1. conduct experiments to quantify thermodynamic and kinetic phenomena following experimental protocols and safety guidelines.
2. quantitatively analyze the results of experiments using theoretical relationships and models.
3. evaluate and report the experimental uncertainty of quantitative measurements.
4. interpret the results of experiments in terms of physical chemistry concepts.
5. report results of experiments in the quality and form of a scientific journal article.
6. articulate and follow ethical principles in a scientific context, including standards of laboratory practice, the communication of literature research without plagiarism, and the crediting of collaborators.
