Recitations

SES # Key

Rb = Recitation: Structure and Bonding
Rt = Recitation: Thermodynamics

This page presents information covered in recitation sessions. While each lecture session includes both thermodynamics and structure/bonding content, recitations alternate their focus between thermodynamics and structure/bonding.
