CHEM 24532 Physical Chemistry I

The study of atomic and molecular phenomena through the scrutiny and interpretation of the physical laws that govern the structure and behavior of matter as it exchanges energy within and between itself and its surroundings in the atomic and molecular domains.  Must be taken concurrently with CHEM 24533.  Topics include the foundation of quantum chemistry, atomic and molecular structure, spectroscopy, and computational chemistry. It is strongly suggested that CHEM 24532 be taken prior to CHEM 24534. Prerequisites: CHEM 24116 and CHEM 24117 with a minimum grade of C, PHYS 25120 and MATH 17121.
