Class Objectives
/Class Outline
You lean basic quantum theory to explain structure and movements of atoms, molecules, and electrons.
Purposes of this class are 1) to understand basic concept of Schroedinger equation, wavefunctions, uncertainty principle, and 2) to understand apply quantum chemistry to simple movements such as particle in a box, harmonic motion, and rotation.

lesson2:Schroedinger equation and wavefunction 1
lesson3: Schroedinger equation and wavefunction 2
lesson4: Probability density, eigenvalue equation, operator
lesson5: Superposition of wavefunctions and expectation value
lesson6: Uncertainty principle
lesson7: Middle Exam and explanations
lesson8: Application to a simple system: particle in a box 1
lesson9: Application to a simple system: particle in a box 2
