Welcome to Prof. Roussel's Chemistry 2740

Physical Chemistry

Syllabus

The syllabus presented here is the same as in the course outline, with one addition: a tentative list of problems to be tackled in class are listed here. You do not need to try these problems before coming to class. However, I found the last time I taught this course that some students like to look at the problems ahead of time.
