CHEM 1210 – Behaviour of Liquids, Gases, Solids

(3 credits – TG) 3 hours lecture, 1 hour tutorial, 3/2 hours lab
(3 hours of lab every 2 weeks)

Students will be introduced to the behaviour of fluids and solids; phase transformations, the phase rule and phase diagrams. Students will undertake an examination of ideal and real gases; equations of state and their applications to engineering; simple kinetic theory and the properties of fluids In examining liquids emphasis will be placed on vapour pressure, shear behaviour, and fluid flow in pipelines. In addressing the behaviours of solids students will examine crystalline and non-crystalline structure, non-equilibrium solid phases, electrical and thermal conductivity, dislocations, stress and strain, creep and
fracture in solids.

Prerequisite: Chemistry 30 or equivalent.
