Course Description

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.
