Level of study:
Prerequisites for registration:
passed Physical Chemistry I (N400F0_4B) or enrolled simultaneously Physical Chemistry I (N400F0_4B)
Assesment methods:
Tests, oral examination related to practiced topic, preparation of report on measurements. The notation is defined by the currently valid study regulations at the Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava.
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.
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.
