The student should be able to critically analyze the spontaneous behavior of any natural process from thermodynamic and kinetic perspective.
Extract from the experimental data obtained in the laboratory (measurements and observations) relevant thermodynamic information through its correlation with the appropriate thermodynamic equations.
Express the dependence of the rate of a reaction with parameters such as the temperature and the concentration of the chemical species involved.
Express the rate law of a chemical process from its reaction mechanism and calculate the concentration of the reaction mixture as a function of time
Predict the effect of the presence of a catalyst in the rate and the Thermodynamics of a chemical reaction both from a qualitative and quantitative perspective.
The student should to be able to understand the double nature affecting any physical-chemical process: both thermodynamical and kinetical control.
