By the end of this course, the student should understand the basics of the language of quantum mechanics, and understand why it is important to describe the structure of matter and explain physical and chemical phenomena.

Specific Skills: 1. The student should have some understanding of the need felt by the physicists at the beginning of the twentieth century to overcome the fails of Newton's mechanics. 2nd. The student should understand the basic principles of quantum mechanics in an elementary language. 3rd. The student must know how to interpret and manipulate quantitative expressions for the photoelectric effect and the interpretation of Einstein. 4th. The student should know how to write the operators of kinetic and potential energy and build the Schrödinger equation for systems capable of exact solution. 5th. The student must know the meaning of probability amplitude, probability density and the phenomenon of quantum interference. 6th. The student should understand well the behavior of the solutions to the problem of a particle in a one-dimensional box, interpreting the response of the solution to changes in the parameters of the particle mass and length of the box; must correctly interpret the role of the quantum number. 7th. The student should know how to write the Schrödinger equation for a harmonic oscillator and interpret the solutions of this equation, and relate them with their energy levels. Eight. The student should know how to write the Schrödinger equation for the hydrogen atom and understand all its solutions in its radial and angular components and their energy values. 9th. The student should know how to build the Schrödinger equation for the helium atom and understand, in general, the electronic structure of polyelectron atoms. 10. The student must understand the general characteristics of the electronic structure of atoms and relate this to the electronic spectrum. 11. The student should understand the elemental form of vibrational spectra of molecules. B. General Skills: 1. Working group to perform laboratory work and drafting of reports. 2nd. Oral presentation and preparation of supporting tools for this presentation.
