CHEM 3550L Physical Chemistry Laboratory 0/4/2

Prerequisite: CHEM 3521 or CHEM 3522

In this course, students will demonstrate their understanding of the physical basis and general applications of experimental techniques in physical chemistry. In particular, they will demonstrate their ability in applying the theories from thermodynamics, kinetics, quantum mechanics and spectroscopy to interpret experimental data. They will also learn how to maintain a laboratory notebook - collect data in a professionally acceptable way. Finally, they will demonstrate their ability to communicate their data and results to others. CHEM 3521 or CHEM 3522 may be taken concurrently.
