Intended learning outcomes *
After completed and passed course, the student should be able to:
• write balanced formulas for chemical reactions.
• carry out stoichiometric and thermochemical calculations.
• Define the reaction rate based on reactions of chemical elements.
• carry out simple calculations of chemical equilibrium and reaction kinetics.
• use the important tools - material and energy balances and adapt the base case for these to a given process and solve the resulting equation system.
• set up models for material and energy balance for different design alternatives, combine and apply these models in problem-solving and use enthalpy tables, specific heat and other material properties to make the calculations.
• describe and give example of processes such as continuous/satsvis process, stationary/non-stationary processes, open/closed systems, and explain the concepts of air surplus, recirculation, total yield, exchange and selectivity.
• apply a system approach to problems of a chemico-technical nature and identify the system boundaries for the problem, and choose system boundaries so that the problem becomes solvable based on the given data.
• review the different instrumental analytical methods within modern chemistry: chromatographic separation methods, spectroscopic methods, diffraction methods.
• carry out simple chemical laboratory work with consideration for the working environment and safety precautions.
To achieve the expected learning outcomes, the course is divided into two subparts.
Part 1: Stoichiometry, thermochemistry, material balance, energy balance, kinetics (8 credits) and period 1-2
Part 2: Laboratory course(2 credits), period 1
