free energy refers to the amount of internal energy in a thermodynamic system that is available to do work. There are different forms of thermodynamic free energy

Petroleum Refining is defined as the industrial process of production of useful petroleum products from crude oil. The crude oil in its raw form is a dark and sticky liquid which is not useful. To get the usable products from the crude oil, it needs to be refined.

These are those polymers which decompose under aerobic or anaerobic conditions, as a result of the action of microorganism/enzymes.

Crystal field theory established in 1929 explains the interaction of the metal ion and the ligand as a pure electrostatic reaction

Polyvinyl chloride is produced from the main component. It is white, brittle solid material available in powder form or granules.

Chirality is an important property of asymmetry in many branches of science. A chiral molecule or ion exists in two stereoisomers that are mirror images of each other, called enantiomers

Optical activity is the ability of a chiral molecule to rotate the plane of plane-polarised light.some organic compounds cause the rotation of polarized light

Elastomers are polymers showing properties of both viscosity and elasticity and are also called viscoelasticity. The molecules of elastomers held together by weak intermolecular forces

The algebraic sum of ALL the currents entering and leaving a node must be equal to zero, the algebraic sum of all voltages within the loop must be equal to zero

Smelting, is a process in metallurgy, where the metal obtained from its ore by heating beyond its melting point, in the presence of oxidizing agents,

The property of the surface of a liquid that allows it to resist an external force, due to the cohesive nature of its molecules

A Calorimeter is a device that is used to measure the heat flow of a chemical reaction or physical change.

Buffers are generally characterised by pH range by which they maintain a more or less constant pH by their buffer capacity.

At equilibrium Nernst equation is given by, E0 = (2.303RT/nF) log10Keq Where, Keq = equilibrium constant and F= faradays constant, and gives a relation between standard electrode potential.

Enthalpy is the measurement of energy in a thermodynamic system. The quantity of enthalpy equals the total content of heat of a system
