CHM 443 - Quantum Mechanics and Molecular Spectroscopy

4 Credits


This course starts by exploring the scientific discoveries that prompted the quantum revolution.  Students then solve the Schrodinger equation for several important model systems such as particle in a box, harmonic oscillator, rigid rotor, and the hydrogen atom.  Students also apply molecular spectroscopy to simple systems.
Prerequisites: MTH 141 , PHY 110 , and any CHM course
