Undergraduate Level
Course Description & Objectives: 

This is a first course in quantum mechanics, offered to second year students. The course covers the atomic structure, the quantum effects, wave function and probability amplitude, and the commutation relations of linear operators.  

Learning Outcomes: 

At the end of the course the student should be able to:

  • Relate the Bohr model of the atom and the spectra of the hydrogen atom to atoms with higher atomic numbers;
  • Interpret the quantum effects for different types of radiation;
  • Explain the wave-particle nature of radiation;
  • Derive the Schrödinger equation for a free particle and for a particle in the box, and relate it to all particle nature problems;
  • Use the quantum mechanics operators when solving problems.
