Chemistry is an index of industrial development everywhere in the world. The frontiers of chemistry are very large, ranging from one extreme of natural products to those synthesized by man. The enormous strides made by man in the understanding, exploitation of nature and synthesis of new products all have their roots in chemistry and chemical technology. For economic sustenance and technological breakthroughs, this course is designed to introduce the basic concept of physical chemistry and its enormous benefits to mankind. 


At the end of this course, the Students should be able to:

1. state the kinetic theory of gases and solve problems related to ideal and real gases

2. state the various laws that govern the behaviour of an ideal gas

3. discuss chemical kinetics

4. explain the factors that affect chemical reactions

5. discuss phase equilibra
