3.091 Introduction to Solid-State Chemistry

Class Info

Basic principles of chemistry and their application to engineering systems. The relationship between electronic structure, chemical bonding, and atomic order. Characterization of atomic arrangements in crystalline and amorphous solids: metals, ceramics, semiconductors, and polymers. Topical coverage of organic chemistry, solution chemistry, acid-base equilibria, electrochemistry, biochemistry, chemical kinetics, diffusion, and phase diagrams. Examples from industrial practice (including the environmental impact of chemical processes), from energy generation and storage (e.g., batteries and fuel cells), and from emerging technologies (e.g., photonic and biomedical devices).

This class has no prerequisites.

3.091 will be offered this semester (Fall 2017). It is instructed by J. Grossman.

Lecture occurs 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays in 10-250.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.

8.01 Physics I

Class Info

Introduces classical mechanics. Space and time: straight-line kinematics; motion in a plane; forces and static equilibrium; particle dynamics, with force and conservation of momentum; relative inertial frames and non-inertial force; work, potential energy and conservation of energy; kinetic theory and the ideal gas; rigid bodies and rotational dynamics; vibrational motion; conservation of angular momentum; central force motions; fluid mechanics. Subject taught using the TEAL (Technology-Enabled Active Learning) format which features students working in groups of three, discussing concepts, solving problems, and doing table-top experiments with the aid of computer data acquisition and analysis.

This class has no prerequisites.

8.01 will be offered this semester (Fall 2017). It is instructed by D. Chakrabarty and P. Dourmashkin.

Lecture occurs 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 26-152.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
