In this lesson our instructor talks about the fundamental equations of thermodynamics. First, he discusses the mechanical properties of a system, fundamental properties of a system, and composite properties of a system. Then he talks about the general condition of equilibrium and composite functions. Lastly, he lectures on Maxwell's relations, isothermal volume-dependence, and isothermal pressure-dependence of entropy.
Lecture Slides are screen-captured images of important points in the lecture. Students can download and print out these lecture slide images to do practice problems as well as take notes while watching the lecture.
"As the first modern physical chemistry textbook to cover quantum mechanics before thermodynamics and kinetics, this book provides a contemporary approach to the study of physical chemistry. By beginning with quantum chemistry, students will learn the fundamental principles upon which all modern physical chemistry is built. The text includes a special set of ""MathChapters"" to review and summarize the mathematical tools required to master the material Thermodynamics is simultaneously taught from a bulk and microscopic viewpoint that enables the student to understand how bulk properties of materials are related to the properties of individual constituent molecules. This new text includes a variety of modern research topics in physical chemistry as well as hundreds of worked problems and examples."
