全学自由研究ゼミナール(PEAK) (An introduction to the key physical principles underpinning the whole of modern chemistry, focusing on key ideas from quantum mecha

An introduction to the key physical principles underpinning the whole of modern chemistry, focusing on key ideas from quantum mechanics, molecular statistics and thermodynamics. Due to the situation with Covid-19, this course will be conducted entirely online. There will be live online Q&A sessions with Prof. Woodward on Mondays at 10.30am but as not all PEAK students may be able to attend these, it will be possible to obtain all information and undertake all activities asynchronously i.e. there will be no penalty to students who cannot attend the online class.
This course aims to provide a comprehensive introduction to the key ideas in Physical Chemistry with a focus on Quantum Mechanics and Thermodynamics.

By the end of the course, students should be able to

1) Understand the failure of classical mechanics.
2) Explain the key principles of quantum mechanics.
3) Rationalize the structure of atoms based on quantum mechanics.
4) Explain why the periodic table has the form that it has.
5) Describe the models of chemical bonding and use these models to predict the shapes and stabilities of molecules.
6) Understand the structure of gases including the effects of intermolecular forces.
7) Make calculations based on the kinetic theory of gases
8) Understand the relationship between the properties of individual molecules and of bulk samples.
9) Appreciate the significance of the Boltzmann distribution
10) Understanding key ideas in thermodynamic including work, heat, enthalpy, entropy and Gibbs energy.
11) Applying the basic concepts of thermodynamics to chemical equilibria

授業の方法
Usually this course is delivered as a 'flipped classroom' where students watch the lectures before class and work together in teams to solve guided problems in class. As not all PEAK students may be able to attend the class session online this semester, all lectures, problems and other materials will be available for you to download and work on offline. There will be clear deadlines for each submission of each activity.
成績評価方法
The course is usually evaluated based on in class participation and a final examination. Due to the unusual situation as a result of the Covid-19 virus, the assessment for the course is currently under consideration and will be decided and communicated in due course. Timely completion and submission of the weekly worksheets will form an important part of the assessment, so be advised to focus your attention on these from the outset.
履修上の注意
This course is a foundation course for PEAK Environmental Science students and will be conducted entirely in English. This semester, the course will be delivered entirely online. All lectures and interactive activities will be delivered electronically.
