CHEM210 Quantum and Thermal StructureUpdated: 17 January 2019
|Supervised Exam||There is a supervised exam at the end of the teaching period in which you are enrolled. The paper-based exam will be held at an established exam venue, and coordinated by UNE Exams Unit.|
|Pre-requisites||(CHEM120 or PHYS132) and (MATH120 or MATH101 or MTHS110 or MTHS120 or MTHS130); or candidature in a postgraduate award|
offered in Trimester 3 only in even-numbered years

This unit focuses on an understanding of quantum and thermal structure and the relationship to chemical reactivity and physical processes. The laboratory component consists of remote experiments and data analysis. Topics investigated include introductory quantum mechanics; symmetry; molecular orbital theory; the laws of thermodynamics; work; heat; internal energy and enthalpy; entropy; free energy: all with applications to chemical and physical systems and processes.
Where calculators are permitted in examinations, it must be selected from an approved list, which can be accessed from the Further Information link below.
Note: Students are expected to purchase prescribed material. Please note that textbook requirements may vary from one teaching period to the next.
