Quantum Mechanics Topics

1.054571596e-34 J s
Dirac′s constant, also known as h bar.
4.13566727e-15 eV s
Plancks Constant.
6.58211889e-16 eV s
Known as h bar or Dirac′s constant.
6.626e-34 Js
Planck′s constant.
Atomic Unit
A system of non-SI units used in quantum chemistry to simplify calculations and mathematical expressions.
Bose-Einstein Statistics
Quantum statistics for particles not obeying the exclusion principle.
Exclusion Principle
No two electrons can have the same set of quantum numbers. This statement also applies to protons, neutrons, and other baryons.
Pauli Exclusion Principle
No two electrons can have the same set of quantum numbers.
Quantum Chromodynamics
The quantum theory of the strong interaction.
Quantum Electrodynamics
The quantum theory of the electromagnetic interaction.

Schrodinger Equation
The basic equation of quantum mechanics.
Schrödinger, Erwin
Austrian physicist; developed atomic theory of wave mechanics.
State
Solution to Schroedinger equation defined by a unique set of quantum numbers.
Wave Particle Duality
The observation that electrons; photons; and other very small entities behave like particles in some experiments and like waves in others.
Wavefunction
A mathematical function that gives the amplitude of a wave as a function of position.
Zero Point Energy
A minimum possible energy for an atom or molecule predicted by quantum mechanics.
