This second course of the two-semester sequence uses the quantum theoretical viewpoint to understand the structure and spectroscopy of atoms and molecules. It also introduces statistical thermodynamics as the link between microscopic and macroscopic properties, and applies appropriate principles to consideration of liquids, solids, and dynamic processes. The approach is both theoretical and practical in both lecture and laboratory. You will gain an understanding of many concepts, and their relevance to chemistry, as well as developing skills in mathematical reasoning and problem solving. “Physical Chemistry, ” D.W. Ball, Thomson, 2003 Grading: You may receive up to 600 points in the course: 100 for lab; 100 each for the first three exams and 200 for the comprehensive final exam. Anyone who does not attend the lab (or performs poorly) will receive a failing grade for the entire course. Your final course grade will be based on a curve set by class performance on the exams, however, guaranteed grades can be obtained by exceeding the following limits: A, 534 (89%); B, 474 (79%); C, 390 (65%); D, 300 (50%).

    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.

    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.
