Building on the knowledge gained in Materials Engineering of how energy impacts matter, this module will discuss and analyse in detail how energy determines and modulates matter and its properties. Starting from the strongest nuclear interactions all the way to weak secondary forces, the module will develop how the strength or energy of interactions build up atoms, molecules and condensed phases. Based on this analysis, the module will cover changes in mixtures such as simple chemical reactions from both energy and rate (time) points of view. Finally, students will study how interactions in more complex systems give rise to properties present on a larger (microscopic) scale, such as the emergence of electronic band structures or the composition of biochemical entities e.g. cells and tissues.
