# 3.091 Introduction to Solid-State Chemistry

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

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.

# 18.02 Calculus

Calculus of several variables. Vector algebra in 3-space, determinants, matrices. Vector-valued functions of one variable, space motion. Scalar functions of several variables: partial differentiation, gradient, optimization techniques. Double integrals and line integrals in the plane; exact differentials and conservative fields; Green's theorem and applications, triple integrals, line and surface integrals in space, Divergence theorem, Stokes' theorem; applications.

This class has 18.01 as a prerequisite.

18.02 will be offered this semester (Fall 2017). It is instructed by J. W. Bush.

Lecture occurs 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 26-100.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.

# 21L.015 Children's Literature

Analyzes children's literature from a variety of eras and genres, taking even the most playful texts seriously as works of art and powerful cultural influences. Considers the types of stories adults consider appropriate for children, and why; how opinions about this subject have changed over time and across cultures; and the complex interplay of words and images in children's books. Enrollment limited.

This class has no prerequisites.

21L.015 will be offered this semester (Fall 2017). It is instructed by M. Gubar.

Lecture occurs at null in null.
