Interactive Self-Study Module: Thermodynamic Properties Phase Diagrams
Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering, University of Colorado Boulder 

This module uses screencasts and interactive simulations to explain various processes for a single component by using different phase diagrams. It then provides example problems and interactive simulations to allow the user to test themselves. We suggest using the learning resources in the following order:

  1. Attempt to answer the multiple choice ConcepTests before watching the screencasts or working with the simulations.
  2. Watch the screencasts that describe the phase diagrams and answer the questions within the screencasts.
  3. Use the three interactive simulations to further understand the behavior of the phase diagrams.
  4. Answer the ConcepTests.
        This module is intended for a Thermodynamics course. 

Before studying this module, you should:

After studying this module, you should be able to:
        Represent various processes (constant volume, constant pressure, constant enthalpy, constant entropy, constant temperature) for a single component on different phase diagrams.
