COURSE DESCRIPTION

Course objectives

The aim of the course is to train students to work independently in the laboratory of physical chemistry, processing experimental data and presenting the results of data processing in written form.

Course enrolment requirements and entry competences required for the course

Enrolled in or passed the course Physical Chemistry

Learning outcomes expected at the level of the course (4 to 10 learning outcomes)

After successful completion of the course students will:
1) be acquainted with the fundamental operating procedures in the laboratory of physical chemistry 2) learn the principles of various laboratory instruments and devices 3) be able to independently perform measurements in the laboratory 4) know about how to process and present the collected data and measurement results using the computer 5) know to identify and independently solve engineering problems

Course content broken down in detail by weekly class schedule (syllabus)

1st week: Vapour pressure of pure liquid.
2nd week: Refractometric determination of composition of two-component mixture. 3rd week: Viscosity.
4th week: Colligative properties.
5th week: Equilibrium constant of homogeneous reaction.
6th week: Phase diagram for three-component system.
7th week: Transport numbers by Hittorf method.
8th week: Conductometry and conductometric titration.
9th week: Rate constant of inversion of sucrose by polarimetric method.

Format of instruction:

Student responsibilities

Students are required to carry out all laboratory exercises. Before each exercise, students should take the oral partial exam. After each exercise, students should submit a report on the completed exercise. This will be recorded and evaluated in making a final assessment.

Grading and evaluating student work in class and at the final exam

The final grade is based on the score of the partial oral examination before each exercise, practical work in the laboratory and submitted reports.
Scoring: <60% of the student is not satisfied; 60-69% is sufficient (2); 70-79% good (3); 80-89% very good (4); 90-100% excellent (5).

Quality assurance methods that ensure the acquisition of exit competences

Quality of the teaching and learning, monitored at the level of the (1) teachers, accepting suggestions of students and colleagues, and (2) faculty, conducting surveys of students on teaching quality.
