MSE-204

Lecturer(s) :

Tileli Vasiliki

Language:

English

Summary

This lecture establishes the basic concepts of thermodynamics and defines the main state functions. The concepts are then applied to the study of phase transformations and to establish the phase diagram of mixtures.

Content

1. Reminder of the thermodynamics definitions. Work and Heat. Reversibility.

2. Auxiliary functions and their relationships. Chemical potential

3. Treatment of mixtures. Molar and partial molar variables.

4. General treatment of chemical reactions. Reaction progress. Variables of reaction

5. Chemical reactions in the gaseous state. Law of mass action. Equilibrium constant. Kirchoff's rule. Van't Hoff's equation.

6. Phase equilibiria of mixtures. Gibbs' rule of phases.

7. Chemical reactions in solutions. Equilibrium constant. Effects of pressure and temperature.

8. Non-ideal solutions. Standard states. Chemical potentials. Activity coefficients.

9. Single component, binary, eutectic, phase diagrams. Excess variables of mixing. Stability of multicomponent mixtures.

10. Introduction to ternary phase diagrams.
