Module overview

Physical Chemistry is concerned with the application of physics to the study of chemical systems. Through physical chemistry one can understand and predict the behaviour of chemical systems, thereby allowing these systems to be optimised. This module will provide an introduction into the fundamentals of physical chemistry, focusing on basic chemical thermodynamics, the principle of equilibrium and its application to acid-base and electrochemical systems.
