Goals of the Course
|The purpose of this course is to grasp the physical basis of the interactions between particles and of the behavior and properties of matter. The course begins with perfect gas law, proceeds to thermodynamics, and finishes with applications of thermodynamics to simple mixtures.|
Objectives of the Course(JPN)
Objectives of the Course
|By the end of this course, students should be equipped with knowledge and skills concerning the following:
1) Understand and describe the properties of gases.
2) Understand three laws of thermodynamics.
3) Apply the laws of thermodynamics in chemistry: describe physical and chemical equilibria.

Course Prerequisites and Related Courses
|Fundamentals of Chemistry I and II|
Course Evaluation Method and Criteria
|Students will be evaluated based on one midterm exam (25% weight), one final exam (comprehensive, 45%
weight), and homework (30% weight). Homework will be given at the end of each class. Homework must be submitted before the next class starts. The penalty for homework submitted late should be 10% of the maximum mark per day late. Both midterm and final exams will be written.
Grade evaluation will be according to the GPA System at Nagoya University.
Students who enrolled AY2020 and onward: "A+": 100-95%, "A": 95-80%, "B": 80-70%, "C": 70-65%, "C-": 65-69%, "F": 60-0%.
Students who enrolled before AY2020: "S": 100-90%, "A": 90-80%, "B": 80-70%, "C": 70-60%, "F": 60-0%.
To receive a passing grade, a score of at least 60% is required.

Study Load(Self-directed Learning Outside Course Hours)
|Homework is crucial for mastering new material and developing skills in applying concepts. Weekly
homework will be electronic. A general guideline says an average of 2 hours of study time per week
(assignments and reviews) is necessary for each 1 credit hour.
Language Used in the Course
Lecture format, etc.
|Face-to-face and real-time online lectures combined. The records of the lectures will be provided on Microsoft Teams.|
Additional measures for remote class (on-demand class)
