CHEM 341 - PHYSICAL CHEMISTRY I: LAB
In this course, you will put into practice the principles and theories that were introduced in the lecture portion of Physical Chemistry I. You will conduct experiments in which macroscopic properties of condensed phases are studied. Experiments in this course involve the following physical concepts: thermochemistry, surface tension, ionic conductivity, the relationship between viscosity and molecular weights of polymers, solid-liquid phase diagrams, partial molar volume, kinetics of vesicle formation, kinetics of a diol formation reaction, and equilibrium constants of a weak base. Careful attention is devoted to proper measurement of chemical and physical properties. Experimental results are interpreted with respect to the underlying theory that governs the system. Statistical anslysis of data is performed for all experiments as a means to characterize measurement uncertainty. This is a writing intensive course. You will write formal lab reports in the format of journal articles in the field of physical chemistry. You will also assume the role of a journal referee by reviewing completed lab reports of peers and offering constructive criticism.
