Course unit code: 421F1_4B
Course unit title: Physical Chemistry II
Mode of delivery, planned learning activities and teaching methods:
lecture2 hours weekly (on-site method)
seminar2 hours weekly (on-site method)

Credits allocated: 5
Recommended semester/trimester: -- item not defined --
Level of study: 1.
Prerequisites for registration: none
Assesment methods:
Physical Chemistry II course culminates in an exam. The notation is defined by the currently valid study regulations at the Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava.
Continuous evaluation is performed in the form of short written tests related to the subjects discussed in the seminars. The short tests are given at each seminar (except for the initial seminar). At least 50 % score must be obtained in the short tests as a part of the condition for the participation in the exam.
The exam is written and consists of two parts, problem solving and theory. It is possible to get through the problem solving part of the exam during the term by attending two written tests. In the case of passing these tests, the exam consists only of the theoretical part. Participation on the two written tests during the term is optional.
Learning outcomes of the course unit:
The student acquires knowledge of fundamental laws and concepts used to explain and interpret the physico-chemical properties of matter. Students learn the fundamentals of electrochemistry, chemical kinetics and catalysis, colloid chemistry and molecular spectroscopy.
Course contents:
Electrochemistry: conductivity of the electrolyte solutions, thermodynamic properties of ions in solution, equilibrium electrochemistry, electrochemical cells, polarization of electrodes
Chemical kinetics: rate of chemical reaction, kinetics of elementary and complex reactions, factors influencing the rate of chemical reactions, catalysis
Colloid chemistry: colloidal state, types of colloidal systems, surface energy and wetting, capillarity, adsorption
Molecular spectroscopy: Lambert-Beer law, the basic principles of infrared and ultraviolet-visible spectroscopy, fundamentals of magnetic resonance spectroscopies
