CHEM 113C Physical Chemistry

Task in CHEM 113C Physical Chemistry

(I) Consider a system of N non-interacting oscillators which are described by (i) classical CHEM 113C Physical Chemistry

(ii) quantum mechanics.

A) Derive the partition function Q for both cases, i.e., classical and quantum. Remember to take into account the the zero-point energy in the quantum mechanical description. (Note: you derived the two partition functions for a single oscillator in Homework 3.)

B) Use the partition function you obtained in the previous step and derive the expression for the internal energy of both systems. Where appropriate, use the following identities:

ddxsinh(x) = cosh(x)andcoth(x) = cosh(x)sinh(x)

C) Using the expressions for quantum and classical internal energies, determine at what conditions the two solutions will become the same (low or high temperatures)? Pay attention to the low T limit – if you knew the system’s behavior at low temperatures, would you be able to decide whether it is composed of quantum or classical oscillators? Sketch the internal energy as a function of T, derive the limit of the internal energy as T → 0 (see the hint below), and provide a detailed explanation to all the questions.

Note: you will need to inspect the behavior of hyperbolic cosine function – use the fact that for coth(x) we find the following:

limx→0+ coth(x) ≈1x(II) In this example, you will compute the partition function and the internal energy of ideal gas using only classical mechanics (i.e., you will not rely on the translational partition function). Assume that the system is composed on N identical particles in a reservoir of volume V ≡ Lx · Ly · Lz. The particles behave purely classically, they interact neither with each other nor with the surroundings, and their energy is purely kinetic. The energy is not composed of discrete levels, because we assume that the particles behave classically.

A) Compute the partition sum of the N-particle system:

Q =Z Z Z Lx,Ly,Lz0,0,0Z Z Z ∞−∞e−PNj=1 βEj (px,py,pz) dxdydzdpxdpydpzh3N,

where h is the Planck constant introduced to make the integrand dimensionless; x, y, z represent three cartesian coordinates, and px, py, pz are the momentum components in 1 three cartesian directions. The exponent contains the sum over energies of all particles (labeled j). Show that the result will be in the following form

αN VN T32 N

where α is a constant. Solve for Q and determine the expression for α.(Note that you can decompose the triple integration into a product of Gaussian integrals.)

B) Compute the internal energy of the system from the expression for Q you have obtained in the previous step. Does it agree with the expression you know from basic thermodynamics? Does it agree with the result derived using the translational partition function (see the lecture notes and slides). Provide a detailed reasoning.

(III) We will investigate an (over)simplified model for protein-ligand docking. Consider a situation in which the ligand binding is described by the Hooke’s law, i.e., the force depends linearly on the distance (d) between the protein site and the ligand with a force constant ˜k. The corresponding energy of the system thus depends on d continuously (hence we resort to classical description of the bond).

A) In the canonical ensemble of protein-ligand bound pairs, show that the probability to find a ligand at distance d is a Gaussian functionP(d) = q

−1e−β12kd˜ 2

Find the full expression for the probability and compute the partition function q. Show that q is a simple term that depends on the force constant ˜k and temperature T.

B) Using the probability distribution from the previous step, derive the expression for the average distance hdi at given temperature T. Recall that (in general) the average quantity of some function O(x) is computed as:

hOi =Z ∞0O(x)P(x)dx,where P(x) is the probability function.

You will use the following integrals:

Z ∞0x exp(−ax2)dx =12a and Z ∞0exp(−ax2)dx =12rπa

C) You found the probability to find a ligand at distance d in the first step; what is the standard deviation of the distribution and how does it explicitly depend on temperature?

D) Use the expression for the partition function q and derive the average energy of a protein-ligand bound pair in the ensemble. We assume that the energy depends merely on the distance d, i.e., our model is effective one-dimensional. Does your result agree with the equipartition theorem you know from basic thermodynamics?

(IV) When gas molecules are weakly bound to the surface of a catalyst, they can still “jump around”, i.e., they can move on the surface. Effectively, we can model this situation by a two-dimensional ideal gas in which we consider only translational motion of otherwise non-interacting particles.

A) Derive the partition function Q of an ensemble of N indistinguishable molecules of an ideal gas in two dimensions. Use only the translational degrees of freedom. Compared to the qtrans we derived in the lecture, the partition function will now depend on the area of the surface.

B) Use the partition function you have obtained in the previous step and compute the internal energy of the system. Compare your result with the internal energy of the 3D ideal gas and argue why the 2D result is expected from the equipartition theorem.

(V) Proton has a nuclear spin angular momentum and interacts with a static and homogeneous external magnetic field H~

0. The energy states of protons depend only on the orientation with respect to the external field; due to quantization of space only two orientations exist with energies ±γ|H~0|, where γ is a proportionality constant (itself composed from other elementary constants). Consider a canonical ensemble of N protons and derive an expression for the partition function and internal energy. Simplify the expression as much as possible and make use of hyperbolic functions; show all the steps of the derivation

Kin285 Biomechanics

Objective:
The purpose of this lab is to demonstrate the law of conservation of angular momentum. Specifically, it demonstrates the way in which this law affects the relationship between moment of inertia and angular velocity and provides a practical basis for understanding the basic principles related to angular momentum. To complete this assignment, you’ll need to watch the video for Lab #4 (and conduct the experiment yourself if you can) and answer the questions below. Make sure your answers to the questions are complete, concise and well constructed. Do not answer in point form.  Your answer should describe and explain the phenomena you observed and demonstrate that you have a thorough understanding of the principles involved. Kin285 Biomechanics
Experiment 1:

Watch the video Lab #4 – Angular Momentum and find an object that you can stand or sit on that will spin freely (i.e., an office chair or fitness turntable; e.g., http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Magnet-Balance-Rotating-Trimmer-Fitness-Core-Waist-Twisting-Disc-Weight-Loss-Fitness-Equipments-Twister-Plate-turntable/32268258532.html). To perform the experiment yourself, abduct both arms to 90 degrees (relative to your body) so that they’re horizontal (parallel) to the floor. Spin yourself or have a partner grab one of your arms and slowly rotate you in either the clockwise or counterclockwise direction.  Once you’ve completed approx. ½ a revolution, pull your arms in towards your chest as quickly as possible for several seconds before returning your arms to their original position.  Repeat the procedure several times. Describe in detail exactly what happens. Explain why this behaviour occurs.
Experiment 2:

Repeat Experiment #1 holding a 5 lb. weight in each hand. Try to initiate the rotation at the same speed as in Experiment #1.  Describe how this behaviour compares with the behaviour in Experiment #1.  Explain why it is different.
Experiment 3:

Stand on the turntable in the anatomical position (or sit in the chair with your arms and legs extended and your feet off the floor). Hold a 5 lb. weight in each hand and as before, abduct both arms 90 degrees so that they’re parallel to the floor. With your arms, initiate a forceful negative (clockwise) trunk rotation by horizontally adducting your left arm 90 degrees about the longitudinal axis to the midline while moving your right arm in the same direction. Repeat this motion in the opposite direction (i.e., initiate a + rotation). Describe what happens in each case. Provide an explanation for the phenomena you observed.

Experiments 1, 2 & 3:

Explain how all of the above experiments demonstrate the principle of conservation of angular momentum. In what circumstances does this principle not apply? Provide an example from one of the experiments. Kin285 Biomechanics

2. A comprehensive understanding of assessment and analysis techniques that can be applied to the student’s own research into ways to reduce the environmental impact and energy consumption of industrial organisations.

3. A conceptual understanding of the energy requirements of the components of common industrial processes such as motors, pumps, heaters and compressors that will allow students to critically evaluate research methodologies and outputs from a range of related academic disciplines.

4. Originality in tackling the problems of meeting consumer demand for products and associated services in a competitive globalised industrial context while minimising the associated life-cycle energy consumption

5. The qualities and transferable skills necessary for employment in tomorrow’s lowcarbon industries, specifically the skills of decision making in unpredictable situations and the ability to research and learn independently, required for CPD.

Tasks to be undertaken:

You are the sustainability manager for a manufacturer of electric golf buggies. At present, all material and energy flows are linear (no reuse or recycling). You have been asked to investigate the application of the ‘Circular Economy’ concept to the company and its products. Your role also involves you in the planning of future products and the strategic direction of the business.

1. Describe the different materials used in your product and whether a different design or material choice might improve the suitability of the following components

for the circular economy:

• Structural parts (chassis, wheels, suspension, seat assembly, etc.)

• Electrical parts (motors, lights, switches, wires, circuit boards, batteries) and

• Miscellaneous parts (tyres, transmission, bodywork, upholstery, etc.)

2. Describe a future sustainable industrial system in terms of the stages in the product lifecycle from raw material extraction through manufacturing and use to disposal, after the company has made the material flows as ‘circular’ as possible.

3. For each of the components described in part 1, describe the strategy that the company should adopt over the next 10 years to build the sustainable system you described in part 2. Where possible, illustrate your points from relevant literature.

Deliverables to be submitted for assessment:

Your report should be no more than 2500 words. Use appendices to include additional charts, illustrations and data as necessary. You may find it useful to structure your report according to the list of tasks to be undertaken. Appendices should be no longer than 5 pages in total. The document should be produced in the style of a technical report (formal, factual and to the point). You should use a font of size no less than 10 points. How the work will be marked:

Assessment will be based on the extent to which the learning outcomes listed above have been met, and the extent to which the above instructions, notes and guidance are complied with (for example regarding word limit, style, structure, referencing and citation, etc.). The criteria below relate to the current pass mark of 50%.

• Introduction to the report – 10 marks

• Description of materials and suitability for the circular economy – 30 marks

• Description of future industrial system and life cycle stages – 30 marks

• Descriptions of 10 year strategy – 20 marks

• Clarity of writing style, referencing and structure of report – 10 marks

Work that is deficient in most of the respects outlined above, showing no evidence of critical analysis will be awarded an outright fail of 44% or less. A marginal fail of 45% to 49% may be awarded to work that demonstrates some understanding of the problem but where the understanding, accuracy, organisation and critical analysis fail to justify a marginal pass.
