Thermodynamics and Phase Equilibria

This course, based on MATSCI 204 Thermodynamics and Phase Equilibria, introduces learners to thermodynamics and how it governs phase equilibria. It is intended for a general audience and is especially useful as a preparatory course for undergraduate 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 equilibria.

  • 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.
