Thermodynamics and Phase Equilibria @ Stanford University

Online Course (self-paced)
Chemistry

Price: Free

Length: 16 Weeks
Effort: 5–10 hours per week
Level: Introductory

This course, based on MATSCI 204 Thermodynamics and Phase Equilibria, introduces learners to thermodynamics and and how it governs phase equilibria.

It is intended for a general audience, and is especially useful as a preparatory course for undergarduate and graduate students who are about to take their first class in thermodynamics.

The course reviews concepts including the 1st and 2nd laws of thermodynamics; entropy; equilibrium for isolated systems; materials properties; and continues to review phase equilbria.

What you'll learn

  • What thermodynamic functions govern heterogeneous equilibria and how to calculate these functions from measurable materials properties.

  • Unary phase equilibria and first order phase transitions, metastability.

  • Thermodynamics of solutions and its application to binary phase equilibria and binary phase diagrams.

  • Thermodynamics of chemical reactions.
