Course aims
To support the development of deepened understanding of the phenomena and principles of equilibrium thermodynamics and molecular physics;
To enable the acquisition of the fundamentals and understanding of the structure of matter via practical activities;
To support the development of the skills of conducting experiments, documenting and analysing the results of experiments.
Brief description of the course
Laboratory works in heat and molecular structure: exploring the laws of ideal gas, exploring the heat expansion of bodies, determining the heat of fusion, the heat of evaporation and the heat capacity, exploring saturated vapours, carrying out meteorological measurements and linking them with the theory of heat and molecular structure.
Learning outcomes in the course
Upon completing the course the student:
- can apply the theory of thermodynamics and that of heat and molecular structure when describing and analysing the experiment results;
- can carry out experiments in heat and molecular structure, apply the theory in the analysis of the experiment results;
- can assess the validity of the obtained results and compare them with conclusions deducted from theory.
