Nagoya University, School of Engineering Lecture information system (SYLLABUS)

Chemical Physics(2.0 credits)

Course Type:Specialized Courses
Class Format:Lecture
Course Name : Applied Physics
Starts 1 : 3 the latter term
Elective/Compulsory : Compulsory Elective
Lecturer : Katsuyuki怀MATSUNAGA Professor 

•Course Purpose
Atomic arrangements and physical/chemical properties of atoms, molecules, and clusters can be determined by their electronic structures. Therefore, quantum chemistry and molecular orbital theory are essential, which also make it possible to predict and design novel materials. In this lecture, students learn basics of quantum chemistry and molecular orbital theory and attempt to apply them to various materials expected for practical applications.

•Prerequisite Subjects
Chemistry basics, linear algebra, Electromagnatism, Quantum mechanics

•Course Topics
1. Basics and quantum mechanics
2. Wavefunctions of hydrogen atom
3. Wavefunctions of muitielectron atoms
4. Molecular orbital theory
5. Diatomic molecules composed of s atomic orbitals
6. Diatomic molecules composed of p atomic orbitals
7. Diatomic molecules containing two different atoms
7. Molecules of more than three atoms
8. Stability and chemical reactions of molecules

Students should materials given by the lecturer or the corresponding portions of the reference books before each lecture.

There is no specific text book, but in some cases it may be specified by the lecturer or distributed depending on the content of the lesson.

•Additional Reading
See the reference book titles of the syllabus in Japanese.

•Grade Assessment
Evaluate the level of achievement for the target based on the examination.

(Evaluation criteria)
Understanding and explaining the basic concepts and ideas related to electronic theory and molecular orbital theory for atoms, molecules and clusters.

There is no requirement for taking this class.

•Contacting Faculty
Questions are welcome after each lecture.
