Course Description :
Module 1: Review
Review of basic concepts – systems, surroundings, processes, properties (extensive/intensive), components (single/multi), phases (G/L/S), ideality, zeroth, first, second laws and their consequences (T, U, S).
Module 2: Additional useful thermodynamic functions
The thermodynamic functions H, A and G, concept of chemical potential, equations for a closed system, Maxwell’s relations, thermodynamic analysis of processes – lost work, irreversibility, thoughts on Classical and Statistical Thermodynamics in the context of Biological Processes and Systems.
Module 3: Thermodynamic properties of pure fluids
Review of ideal gas, non-ideal gas, PVT behaviour, virial and cubic equations of state, generalized correlations, residual properties, estimation of thermodynamic properties using equations of state.
Module 4: Thermodynamics of solutions
Partial molar properties, fugacity, ideal and non-ideal solutions, excess properties of mixtures, activity coefficient, Gibbs-Duhem equation
Module 5: Phase Equilibria
Phase rule, criteria for phase equilibria, VLE for pure component, VLE for multi-component system
Module 6: Reaction Equilibria
Equilibrium criteria for homogenous reactions, evaluation of equilibrium constant, effect of temperature and pressure on equilibrium constant, calculation of equilibrium conversion and yields for single and multiple reactions.
