Electrochemical nature and thermodynamics of corrosion is a free online course that begins by introducing you to the concept of corrosion, as well as the various processes that can cause corrosion. The course will also introduce you to the different types of corrosion, as well as the different forms of corrosion which are uniform, galvanic, crevice, pitting, erosion, and stress-assisted corrosions. The impact of each type of corrosion, as well as how the crevice and pitting forms of corrosion affect the surrounding will also be covered in this course.
This course then explains some of the forms of corrosion with real-world examples, as well as the relevance of understanding the electrochemical nature of corrosion. You will learn about the different thermodynamics aspects of corrosion, as well as how the concept of free energy change is relevant in the process of corrosion. This course will teach you about the process of entropy change in corrosion, as well as the relationship between Delta G and equilibrium constant during corrosion.
Furthermore, this course will help you get familiar with how the electrochemical nature of corrosion is utilized when finding the equation of the corrosion processes. You will learn about how current flows from the positive terminal to the negative terminal. This free online course will be of great interest to students, researchers, and anyone with an interest in the electrochemical nature of corrosion.
