This course will render mechanical engineering students to applied nature of chemistry by learning the fundamentals and then applying to current industrial/mechanical engineering processes. Starting from fundamentals like atomic structure, chemical bonding, stoichiometry, then moving on to introduce student to concept of chemical energy and thermodynamics, thermochemistry, chemical kinetics, chemical equilibrium, electrochemistry and environmental chemistry and finally relating al concepts to field of mechanical engineering. Furthermore, this course will relate chemistry to industrial application like refining of fossil fuel and petroleum products, adhesive, electrochemical nature of corrosion and its protection with paints and coatings. Treatment of waste / industrial water will be covered.


CLO-1: Explain working knowledge of chemistry and its application.(C2)
