NME 220: Introduction to molecular and nanoscale principles (S17) Prof. James M. Carothers Homework #6, Due electronically Wednesday, May 10, 2017 at 12:30pm Objective: This homework has a lot of questions, but, they are short! The purpose is to integrate material from the book with material from on-going/upcoming quantum mechanics lectures relevant to understanding the forces driving molecular interactions. Textbook reading assignment: Chapter 4.1-4.3 (p. 89 to 100) Section 1. Book Chapter problems 4.3-4.11 Section 2. Lecture-derived short-answer problems. 2.1 True or False: Vibration at surfaces may affect rates of substrate binding and catalysis True. 2.2 True or False: Quantum mechanical harmonic oscillators do not have quantized energy levels. False. Quantum mechanical oscillators do have quantized energy levels. 2.3 What is 'zero-point' energy? Zero-point energy is the vibrational energy of harmonic oscillators at 0 K. 2.4 The rigid rotor is the simplest conceptual model for molecular rotation. By analogy, what is the simplest model for a) constrained translation b) vibration?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
