My apologies!

For technical e-mail, including sending equations and formulii, please see How To EMail, although as time has progressed, this has become eaven easier than when I first wrote this material.

For advanced reading in Quantum Chemistry, please see Readings

The following materials are available:

- Beginning Discussion of Mathematics Prerequisites for Physical Chemistry (a work in progress, comments cheerfully accepted)
- Elementary Review Problems
- Here is ch1q23 worked out in Maple V to show a method of working which student s may find beneficial. Maple ch1q23.

- Gases and Kinetic Theory

Some additional pertinant readings are listed here: - Solids
- Energy, Work and Heat
- Thermochemistry
- Second Law, Carnot Cycles, Entropy, Third Law

Some additional pertinant readings are listed here: - Stability, Free Energy (Thermodynamic Potentials)
- Phase Equilibria
- Chemical Equilibrium
- Chemical Kinetics
- Elementary Quantum (0)

I would like to thank the students in Chemistry 263-4 who materially aided in the debugging of most of these questions, and without whose patience and understanding this project could not have been brought to its current state.

Specifically, the surviving students:

worked very hard checking these questions. Since they have been edited since being checked, the responsibilty for subsequent induced errors surely remains with me.

For a disscussion of the Maxwell Boltzmann Distribution and the- First Law of Thermodynamics you can look here.
- The Maxwell Boltzmann Distribution Without Lagrange Multipliers.
- The Stirling Approximation, a derivation using the area to integral formulation

If you are interested in how these questions were created, i.e., Perl, CGI, HTML, Latex2HTML, Java, etc., etc., etc., then you may wish to look at a a book which explains at various levels how these questions can be implemented. Since this book is constantly changing, please forgive its rather informal style.

To read a manuscript concerning molecular vibrations in water using Maple as the language of choice to better understand normal modes, IR absorption, etc., please check out (using IE, not NetScape, etc.) this manuscript. Thanks

This material was created by Carl W. David when he was an active faculty member at the University of Connecticut. It is not being maintained, but serves as an indication of how computer assisted testing can work successfully.
