An Introduction to the Gas Phase, Paperback / softback Book

An Introduction to the Gas Phase Paperback / softback


An Introduction to the Gas Phase is adapted from a set of lecture notes for a core first year lecture course in physical chemistry taught at the University of Oxford.

The book is intended to give a relatively concise introduction to the gas phase at a level suitable for any undergraduate scientist.

After defining the gas phase, properties of gases such as temperature, pressure, and volume are discussed.

The relationships between these properties are explained at a molecular level, and simple models are introduced that allow the various gas laws to be derived from first principles.

Finally, the collisional behavior of gases is used to explain a number of gas-phase phenomena, such as effusion, diffusion, and thermal conductivity.
