Thermodynamics and Thermochemistry

by Jared Rovny, PhD

Thermodynamics is the field of science that studies the relation of heat to other forms of energy (chemical, electrical, mechanical). Thermochemistry is a subdiscipline of thermodynamics that describes heat energy in relation to chemical reactions. While the latter seeks to quantitatively study the relationship between chemical reactions and heat, the former seeks to study the laws that relate chemical reactions to heat. This course will cover the definitions of basic thermodynamics quantities like energy, heat transfer, enthalpy, and entropy, as well as the key properties of chemical reactions, to analyze pressure-volume diagrams in terms of work and understand how phases of matter relate to different pressures and temperatures of matter.

So cool!
By Tatiana B. on 04. January 2022 for 0th and 1st Law: Temperature and Energy

man, i was so confused about this topic but now I'm clear , I'm very pleased

About the lecture
By Neuer N. on 17. November 2017 for 2nd Law: Entropy

The best lecture I ever heard.I liked everything about it. I would recommend this to all students studying Physics.
