CHEM.3450 Physical Chemistry II (Formerly 84.345)

Id: 007679 Credits Min: 3 Credits Max: 3


CHEM.3450 serves as a continuation of CHEM.3440. Topics covered include the failures of classical physics that led to the rise of quantum mechanics, the postulates of quantum mechanics, the particle-in-a-box, the harmonic oscillator, the rigid rotator, the hydrogen atom and multi-electron atoms. Applications of these quantum mechanical models to chemistry and spectroscopy are discussed, along with aspects of chemical bonding.


Pre-Req: CHEM.3440 Physical Chemistry I and (MATH.2340 Differential Equations or MATH.2360 Eng. Differential Equations).
