At the beginning of the course, a general description and explanation of laws affecting behaviour of the particle systems is provided. Subsequently, particle systems are described at molecular level. Follows the study on the matter in motion, based on its inner structure, properties of structural elements, mutual interactions and force fields. The course also contains some practical applications and fundamental calculations.


Fundamentals of physical chemistry
