Kinetic Theory of Matter
- Department of Nuclear Chemistry
Study of kinetic behaviour of matter based on its inner structure, properties of structural elements, mutual interactions and force fields. Description and explanation of laws affecting behaviour of particles systems. Molecular level description of particles systems. Practical applications and basic calculations.
