AbstractThe laws of thermodynamics: empirical temperature, energy, entropy. Models and standard states: ideal gases, ideal solutions and mixtures, activity, standard thermodynamic values. Reaction thermodynamics: chemical potential, thermodynamic parameters of reactions, equilibrium conditions and their temperature and pressure dependence, biochemical reactions, surface effects, colligative properties.
ObjectiveUnderstanding the fundamental thermodynamic properties of chemical and biological systems.
