CHEM 3900 - Honors Physical Chemistry II


(PBS)      
Spring. 4 credits. Letter grades only.

Prerequisite: MATH 2130  or MATH 2310  or MATH 2220 ; PHYS 2208 ; CHEM 2080  or permission of instructor; for CHEM 3900, CHEM 3890 .

J. Park.

CHEM 3890  is an introduction to the quantum mechanics of atoms and molecules. The fundamental principles of quantum mechanics are introduced, and applications of the theory to atomic and molecular structure are covered in detail. CHEM 3900 is a continuation of CHEM 3890  and discusses the thermodynamic behavior of macroscopic systems in the context of quantum and statistical mechanics. After an introduction to the behavior of ensembles of quantum mechanical particles (statistical mechanics), kinetic theory, the laws of thermodynamics, and chemical kinetics are covered in detail.
