Handle properly the laws, principles and fundamental concepts of thermodynamics.
The student should be able to critically analyze the spontaneous behavior of any natural process from thermodynamic and kinetic perspective.
To identify the most important variables affecting energy processes and quantify the influence of their variation in the overall energetic result.
Correlating the concepts of free energy and equilibrium constant and being able to predict the direction in which the reactions will evolve from a given set of initial conditions occur.
Calculate energy changes of a chemical process from the thermodynamic values corresponding to the formation of each of the reactants and products involved in the process.
Extract from the experimental data obtained in the laboratory (measurements and observations) relevant thermodynamic information through its correlation with the appropriate thermodynamic equations.
The student should to be able to understand the double nature affecting any physical-chemical process: both thermodynamical and kinetical control.
