Chemical Physics

Chemical physics involves chemistry and physics in the investigation of the physicochemical phenomena using techniques from atomic and molecular physics and condensed matter physics. Chemical physics studies chemical processes from a physicist’s point of view. Although names are similar, chemical physics is different from physical chemistry due to the fact chemical physics studies the characteristic elements and theories of physics. Physical chemistry studies the physical nature of chemistry.

Chemical physics is a subset of the fields in quantum mechanics, solvation of molecular energy flow and quantum dots. Chemical physicists probe structures and dynamics of ions, free radicals, clusters, molecules and polymers. They do these probing experiments by various spectroscopic techniques. Chemical physics is an interdisciplinary field. The research areas include, DNA interactions, electrochemistry of semiconductors, fuel cells, ultrasound medical imaging and catalyst development to name a few. A chemical physicists' goal is to understand chemical structures and reactions at a quantum mechanical level. The goal is to make accurate approximations in physics of chemical phenomena computationally accessible.

Water, Osmosis, Cellular Function, and Turgor Pressure

Review physical and chemical properties of water. How might changes in temperature affect cellular function? How might water pollution affect cellular function? How might it affect water movement in cells and plants? OR What are roles of osmotic potential or turgor pressure in regulating water potential of plant cells? Exp

A Discussion on Various Chemical and Physical Science Concepts

1. The density of the liquid flowing through the horizontal pipe in the drawing above is 1500 kg/m3. The speed of the fluid at pint A is 5.5 m/s while at point B it is 8.0 m/s. What is the difference in pressure, PB - PA, between points B and A? a.) -1.9 x 103 Pa b.)+3.8 x 103 Pa c.)-2.5 x 104 Pa d.)+5.0 x 104 Pa e.)-7.

Acceleration, speed, air resistance, density, temperature, work

1. You push with a 50-N horizontal force on a 10 kg mass resting on a horizontal surface against a horizontal friction force of 20N. What is the acceleration? 2. A railroad diesel engine weighs six times as much as a freight car. If the diesel engine coasts a 7km per hour into a freight car that is intially at rest, how f

Particle Physics

What mass of silver was deposited? a. 4.94 g b. 2.47 g c. 11.2 g d. .02 g 2. A sample of polonium has a half-life of 2.7 min and an intial activity of 1.0 x 10^6 Bq. What is its act

Multiplicity for an ideal monatomic gas.

In problem 2.26 you found the multiplicity for an ideal monatomic gas that lives in a two-dimensional universe. It was (see attachment). As implied, the multiplicity is determined by the internal energy, the area occupied by the gas, and the number of particles in the gas. From these, determine the temperature, 'pressure', an

Quantimum number

An electron state in the hydrogen atom can be designated by the quantum numbers n, l, m and s a. Whet is the physical significance of each quantum number b. Describe how these numbers can be used to assemble the periodic table. c. Find the normalization constant and <r> for state n=2, l=1, m=0 See attached file for full
