Main Progression - The Second Law of Thermodynamics & Heat Engines, Chemical Thermodynamics and the Equilibrium State, The States of Matter, The Physical Properties of Organic Compounds, and Chemical Kinetics.
Review & Preview - This is the first module in which we find ourselves responsible for the outlines of all four disciplines: Physics, General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry and Biology.
Knowledge Mapping - An intense and challenging set of discussions designed to help you integrate a great deal of physics and chemistry.
Verbal Reasoning and Essay - Continuing the regimin of reading program, exercise, and writing assignment.
Review & Preview
||Be able to narrate the Carnot Cycle in terms of the concepts of Heat & Temperature, Ideal Gas & Kinetic Theory, The First Law of Thermodynamics, and the Second Law of Thermodynamics.|
||Pull together concepts of Work & Energy, the Electric Force, Heat & Temperature, Thermochemistry and the Second Law of Thermodynamics to develop a concrete, intuitive sense of the Gibbs free energy. |
||Apply the concepts of Thermochemistry and Chemical Thermodynamics to understand equilibrium in important examples such as phase change, dissolving an electrolyte in water, autoprotolysis of an acid, and oxidation-reduction.|
||Be prepared to distinguish reasoning based on the concepts of Chemical Thermodynamics from propositions based on Chemical Kinetics.|
