The Zeroth Law of Thermodynamics and Temperature

Description

In this video I shall present the context for the creation of the 0th Law of Thermodynamics. And describe how it renewed confidence in our ability to measure temperature. This context will involve a very brief description of the first three laws of thermodynamics.

The First Law of Thermodynamics and Enthalpy

Description

In this video, I shall present the first law of thermodynamics, and show how it governs the state function internal energy, and how considerations of the first law for isochoric and isobaric processes leads to the definition of the further state function called enthalpy.

The Second Law of Thermodynamics and Entropy

Description

In this video, I shall present the Second Law of Thermodynamics. I shall consider the spontaneous direction in which processes occur, and then try to understand this through the definition and elucidation of a new state function, termed entropy.

Rate of reaction

Description

Chemical kinetics is a study of how the rate of a reaction depends upon a number of different things. So, for example, if we change the concentration in the reaction chamber, we change the temperature.
