This document provides students with an outline of calculating a variety of thermodynamic properties for simple gases involved in a gas phase reaction. The end result is a calculation of Keq for the ammonia reaction as a function of temperture. Exercises are used throughout to guide students as they learn how to do the calculatons with Mathcad. As a mastery exercise students can apply this template to any reaction system assigned by an instructor.
