Transformation and Transport of Substances

Chapter
Part of the Graduate Texts in Physics book series (GTP)

Abstract

Processes that have to do with the nature and behavior of substances are called chemical processes. They deal with the quantity of chemical species, their strength or intensity relative to each other, and their power to cause other phenomena. Chemical processes are essentially of two types: Transport and reaction. Substances can wander from place to place, or they can change–in fact, they get produced or destroyed in chemical reactions. These are the phenomena we are going to introduce in this chapter. Bulk transport of fluids will be dealt with further in Chapter 8, and more formal treatments of chemical physics can be found in Chapters 10 and 15.
