Computing a Flame Temperature
Theresa Julia Zielinski, Monmouth University Joseph H. Noggle (1936 - 1998), Monmouth University |
Mathcad document that allows students to learn how to compute adiabatic flame tempertures. | |

Computing Enthalpies of Reaction
Theresa Julia Zielinski, Monmouth University |
A symbolic mathematics document to provide hands on practice for computing heats of reaction and heat of reaction as a function of temperature given a constant value for Cp.The thermodynamic data required for a large variety of reactions is provided in the file ThDATA.xls. | |

Fitting a Polynomial to C_{P} vs. T for Ag
Theresa Julia Zielinski, Monmouth University |
This document demonstrates the method of fitting a polynomial of any reasonable power to a set of data and provides an example of how to use matrix methods to solve simultaneous equations in physical chemistry. | |

Intermolecular Potentials and The Second Virial Coefficient
Patrick L. Holt, Bellarmine University |
A worksheet for exploring the relationship between intermolecular potentials and the second virial coefficient using the hard sphere, square-well, and Lennard-Jones potentials. Students can compute the second virial coefficient and explore the coefficient?s temperature dependence for several substances and use a computed B value to investigate the temperature dependence of the compression factor, Z. | |

The Joule-Thomson Effect and Enthalpy for SO_{2}*
Theresa Julia Zielinski, Monmouth University |
An introduction to thermodynamics of real gases, computing imperfection functions, Joule-Thomson coefficients, and Joule-Thonson inversion temperatures. | |

Work Done During Reversible and Irreversible Isothermal Expansion of an Ideal Gas
Arthur Ferguson, Worcester State College |
This Mathcad template explores the implications of the Boltzmann Equation for the population of energy states as a function of temperature. |
