CH 281 - Physical Chemistry II

The principles of quantum mechanics are developed and illustrated by consideration of simple systems. The properties of atoms and molecules are explored and spectroscopy is presented as a tool for probing the properties of individual molecules. Statistical mechanics is introduced as a bridge between the microscopic quantum view and the macroscopic thermodynamic view.

Three hours of lecture and four hours of laboratory each week. Five credits.

Prerequisite(s): CH 280 ; Pre or Co-requisite(s): PS132 or permission of instructor.
