Course unit code:
Course unit title:
Laboratory of Physical Chemistry I
Mode of completion and Number of ECTS credits:
Class req (2 credits)
Course supervisor:
doc. Ing. Erik Klein, PhD.
Learning outcomes of the course unit:
Laboratory practices enable students to gain practical skills from the fundamentals of chemical thermodynamics with focus on calorimetry and phase changes in one-component and multi-components systems. They enable the application of knowledge obtained in lectures and seminars from physical chemistry.
Prerequisites for registration:
passed Physical Chemistry I (N400F0_4B) or enrolled simultaneously Physical Chemistry I (N400F0_4B)
Course contents:
Refractometry, polarimetry, molar mass estimation of volatile liquids, liquid surface tension, viscosimetry, calorimetric determination of enthalpy change of dissolvation, determination of enthalpy of vaporization, liquid-vapor phase diagramms of two componet systems, cryoscopy, liquid-liquid phase diagrams.
