CHM220H1: Physical Chemistry for Life Sciences


Introduction to thermodynamics; kinetics; phase equilibrium, properties of mixtures, chemical equilibrium, electrochemistry; introduction to quantum mechanics and spectroscopy. This course is recommended for students in life and health science programs that involve a small amount of chemistry. Students enrolled in any chemistry specialist program (including Biological Chemistry and Environmental Chemistry) or who will be including a substantial amount of chemistry in their degree (such as those following a chemistry major program), are strongly encouraged to take CHM222H1 and CHM223H1.


Recommended co-requisite: MAT235Y1/​MAT237Y1


CHM225Y1/​CHM222H1, CHMB20H3, JCP221H5/CHM221H5
