Open Yale CoursesCHEM 125: Freshman Organic ChemistryLecture 10 - Reality and the Orbital Approximation<< previous session| next session >>Overview:In discussions of the Schrödinger equation thus far, the systems described were either one-dimensional orinvolved a single electron. After discussing how increased nuclear charge affects the energies of one-electronatoms and then discussing hybridization, this lecture finally addresses the simple fact that multi-electronsystems cannot be properly described in terms of one-electron orbitals.Problem sets/Reading assignment:Reading assignments, problem sets, PowerPoint presentations, and other resources for this lecture can beaccessed from Professor McBride's on-campus course website, which was developed for his Fall 2008students. Please see Resources section below.
