CHEM 261 is an introduction to the quantal nature of matter (the Schrödinger equation and the mathematical machinery of quantum mechanics) and the fundamental principles necessary to understand spectroscopy (electronic, vibrational, and rotational). CHEM 261 is intended for Chemical Engineering students. This course, together with Chem Engin 330, provides the prerequisites necessary for enrollment in CHEM 302. Grading is based on problem sets and one hour exam. CHEM 261 meets only for the first third of the term.
