Reaction Energetics and Kinetics (F1094)
15 credits, Level 4
This module provides an overview of understanding the energetic drive of phase transition and chemical reactions.
You gain valuable insight into why the transformation is energetically favorable and what is the equilibrium point of reactions. Quantitative analysis of correlation between elementary reaction and reaction order, as well as the correlation between the activation energy and rate constant will be established. A successful student will also be able to predict the reaction direction and reaction rate.
