Tutorial Questions and Solutions

J. E. Parker


About this Book: The book covers the physical-chemistry aspects of quantum mechanics and spectroscopy in years 1-3 of a typical university degree in chemistry, chemical physics, chemical engineering, biology, or biochemistry. The lectures, tutorials, and laboratory experiments I developed and gave on quantum mechanics and spectroscopy to our first, second, and third-year chemistry students over many years at the Chemistry Department, Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, Scotland have formed the basis for the book. The feedback from students was an important part of this process. The book is also a useful reference source for graduates in their later professional careers. The book has a companion text which has tutorial and workshop questions with full and complete solutions including considerable extra background material that clarifies the solutions.



This book is a collection of some of the questions and solutions I used in my first and second-year quantum mechanics and spectroscopy lectures, workshops, and tutorials at the Chemistry Department of Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh Scotland. This book should be read in conjunction with the main test “Chemistry: Quantum Mechanics and Spectroscopy” (Parker 2015). Help with Maths and the carrying out of calculations may be found in Parker 2013b, 2012, and 2013a. To access these books see my web page below. Remember that workshop or tutorial questions will normally be longer and more complex than exam questions because you can use your textbooks, computer and fellow students so don’t worry, they are not practicing exam questions! This book and its companion textbook are designed to be used by Chemists, Physicists, Chemical Engineers, Biochemists, and Biologists in a typical first and second-year degree course. I wish you all good luck with your studies.  

I would like to thank the staff and students at Heriot-Watt who over the years have helped to shape this book. However, my main thanks are to Jennifer for her patience and help during the writing of these books.
