Mechanisms for energy conversion - work and heat ! Variables of state; Equations of state and Enthalpy and energy changes ! Heat capacities ! Chemical reactions and Thermochemistry Chapter 4 January 20-29 4 The Second and Third Laws ! The second law; The Carnot cycle and Entropy ! Molecular interpretation of entropy ! The third law Chapter 5 February 1-10 5 Gibs and Helmholtz energies ! Gibbs free energy ! Temperature and pressure dependence of G ! Clausius-Clapeyron Equation and phase diagrams Chapter 6 February 12-17 6 Non-electrolyte solutions ! Concentration units ! Binary mixtures ! Real solutions !

Ionic activity and Debye-Hukel theory ! Colligative properties of electrolyte solutions Chapter 8 March 1-5 8 Chemical equilibrium ! Gaseous systems ! Reactions in solution ! Influence of temperature, pressure and catalysts on equilibrium Chapter 9 March 8-12 9 Electrochemistry and Acids and Bases Chapters 10-11 as time permits Homework: Weekly homework problems will count 15% of your final grade. It is in your interest to make sure your work is legible and your reasoning clear. Students are encouraged to work together on the homework problems, but each student should hand in his or her own solution. The submitted work should reflect the student's level of understanding. Homework assignments are due by 5:00 P.M. on due date and can be turned in either in class or at Dr. McCoy’s office. Solutions for the homework will be posted in the display case on the east wall of the second floor of Celeste, copies will be available on the first floor of the Science and Engineering Library and on the World Wide Web. Recitation Sessions: The TA will hold two recitation sections each week beginning the second week of classes (Monday January 10). They will be held Mondays at 1:30 P.M. and Tuesdays at 12:30 P.M. in 2003 Evans Lab. You are welcome to attend either or both recitations sections. Web page: A Homepage for this course has been established at “http://www.chemistry.ohio-state.edu” under the subcategory “courses,” “Winter quarter 1999,” and go to the link marked McCoy on the line for Chem 520. The homepage may also be directly accessed at “http://www.chemistry.ohiostate.edu/~mccoy/520-1999/520-home.html.” The home page includes copies of handouts, problem set solutions, as well as general course information. Textbook corrections: Because the text is in the process of being put into final form by the publisher, we have been asked to provide the publisher with any errors we find. Typographical errors, e.g. spelling mistakes, incorrect word choice, etc. will be worth 1 homework point, and scientific errors that have been confirmed by the author will be given 5 homework points. These will count as extra credit, added to that week’s homework assignment. Extra credit points will be awarded only to the first person to find a specific error, and to help keep track of the corrections, I will keep an up-to-date list of errors found to date on the web page. In order to confirm an error with the author, you can email Prof. Chang at [email protected] Please also cc: Prof. McCoy on the email so the correction can be added to the web page.
