Lecture Description

Short physical chemistry introducing quantum chemistry.

Quantum chemistry is quantum mechanics applied to chemical systems such as electrons and nuclei. Quantum mechanics describes the behavior of very small microscopic objects, which behave differently than large macroscopic objects.
