Producing and analysing quantitative data is central to the problem-solving role of a physical chemist. You produce quantitative data in the laboratory from Bohr's model, calorimetry and catalysis experiments. You analyse quantitative data by rearranging equations, performing dimensional analysis of units, graphing data, differentiating and integrating. Case studies are used to investigate the wave-like properties of all matter and how chemical equilibrium changed the course of history. You also study the three laws of thermodynamics and ideal and real gases.
