AP Chemistry: Thermodynamics and Energy Transfer is a free online course that provides you with an in-depth understanding of the main types of isomers sums. If you want to explore the general concept, and terminologies in thermodynamics, as well as the different forms of energy, then sign up for this course. This course will take you through the classification of the alkenes and alkynes, the physical properties of alkenes, as well as their chemical properties. This course introduces you to the nomenclature of alkenes and alkynes, and the naming of alkenes. Study the positional isomers together with preparation of alkanes. You will learn how organic compounds can be classified, as well as how some of the major functional groups can be circled. Have you considered analyzing the concept of the ring compounds in organic chemistry? This course will teach you the functional groups that can be adopted.
Before working with structural repn, and the bold-line structure, it is important to understand the structural isomers that are applicable. It is important to understand the concept of hydrocarbons, the classifications and sub-classifications of hydrocarbons. Having completed this course, you will be able to explain the mechanism for energy transfer and the main types of thermodynamic processes. Furthermore, this course will help you understand the forms of energy transfer together with the laws of thermodynamics. Do you know there are specific illustrations of a system, surroundings, and boundary in thermodynamics? The course also illustrates the Zeroth law and the law of conservation of energy. This course explains how the first law of thermodynamics can be applied in a closed system and the enthalpies for different types of reactions. You will also learn about the process of determining thermodynamic favorability and thermodynamical feasibility. This course seeks to clarify any challenges you may face in understanding the first law of thermodynamics.
Furthermore, you will also learn how chemical reaction energy can be transferred between the different species. You will learn about reactions and the surroundings in which the reaction can take place. Do you know there are activities involved in internal energy? This course will help you get a better understanding of the definition of special heat and the kinds of special heat in a fluid. This course will explain in detail the concept of enthalpies, features of the standard enthalpy and Hess's law. You will also learn about the driving forces of a chemical reaction, the definition of Gibbs and the effect of standard state enthalpy. The course also discusses the thermodynamic favorability of chemical reactions and the different cases that can be used to determine the thermodynamic favorability of a chemical reaction. This free online course will be of great interest to students, researchers, and anyone with an interest in general concepts of thermodynamics.
