What you will learn:
- Explain the fundamentals of chemistry, energy, and other elemental forces shaping the modern world.
- Describe the evolution of chemistry's role in addressing global challenges.
- Identify core concepts of energy and energy transformations, including thermodynamics, chemical equilibria, acid/base and redox reactivity, and electrochemistry.
- Understand the central role of chemistry in addressing global issues such as energy and climate change.
Learn the fundamentals of chemistry and energy, from the types of energy to atomic mass and matter to enthalpy and thermodynamics. What is energy and why is it so important? How does chemistry inform energy efficiency and sustainability? Energy and Thermochemistry is an interdisciplinary, online course that introduces you [...]
Expand your learning of chemistry and thermodynamics by exploring entropy, free energy, and equilibrium. Nature is driven by spontaneity — processes that move forward without external intervention. In this course, Entropy and Equilibria , you will explore the Second Law of Thermodynamics and get an introduction to the concepts [...]
Learn the significance of electrochemistry, understanding how electrical, chemical, and mechanical energy are linked. What is the chemistry and mechanics behind an electric car versus a gas-powered car — and why do you feel a difference driving them? The discipline of electrochemistry is not new, but it has regained [...]
