  • Overview

    Course Description
    The uncertainty principle and Planck's constant, particle-wave duality, Bohr 's theory, Schroedinger's equation, particle tunneling, the hydrogen problem.

    Course Objectives
    After successful completion of this course, students will be able to develop key concepts in the uncertainty principle and Planck's constant, particle-wave duality, Bohr 's theory, Schroedinger's equation, particle tunneling, the hydrogen problem.

    Measurement and Evaluation of Student Achievement
    Student achievement is measured and evaluated by the ability to describe the uncertainty principle and Planck's constant, to describe the particle-wave duality, Bohr 's theory, Schroedinger's equation, particle tunneling, the hydrogen problem. Student’s achievement will be graded according to the college and university standard using the symbols: A, B+, B, C+, C, D+, D and F.
