Chem 3502/5502 Physical Chemistry II (Quantum Mechanics) 3 Credits Fall Semester 2010 Prerequisites: One prior year chemistry, one prior year physics, one prior year calculus. Time and Location : MWF 10:10 – 11:00, 231 Smith Hall, TCEASTBANK Instructor : Laura Gagliardi (229 Smith Hall, 625-8299, gagliard@umn.edu) TA: Run Li (232 Smith Hall, 625-5311, lixx1014@umn.edu) Office Hours : LG: We 3:00-5:00, in 229 Smith Hall RL: We 1:00-3:00, in 101J Smith Hall Textbook : There is no required textbook. Daily class lectures will be distributed on the class website as pdf files. An optional book available in the bookstore is McQuarrie and Simon Physical Chemistry A Molecular Approach, University Science Books, 1997. Class Website: http://www.chem.umn.edu/groups/gagliardi/teaching.html site will include at a minimum all class materials. Note that you are welcome to use the upper division microcomputer lab 101D Smith Hall if you want to print class materials free of charge. Coursework : The class is lecture-like in format, with the anticipated topics to be covered outlined below. Students are expected to keep up with posted class readings (they’ll be made available at least a few days in advance) and to work on assigned homework problems (see below). My intent is to spend the first 5 to 10 minutes of each lecture going over a previously assigned problem, and the remainder on lecture/demonstration of new material. Classroom attendance is not required, but you are likely to have a much more difficult time if you fail to attend classes . Homework: At the end of each day’s lecture notes will be 2 homework problems. I will discuss the solution to the first of the problems at the start of the following lecture. Students should do the problem but will not be expected to turn in their work or solutions. The second homework problem, on the other hand, should be prepared to be turned in for grading. Each Friday, at the start of class, the solutions to all second homework problems will be collected. (The last homework will be collected on Wednesday Dec 15.) One of these, selected at random, will be graded carefully, while the other(s) will be more cursorily checked. Answer keys will be provided online after the
