subatomic particles, atoms, and molecules it gives way to CM for
much of chemistry due to its more complex mathematical
foundations.

Wave

particle
duality allows mathematical wave function solutions to
predict chemical properties of systems.
Incorporates Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle.
The
behavior of individual particles are not certain, but represented as
outcome probabilities.
Statistical treatments make measurements on large systems essentially
certain.
Theories applied to Chemistry
Classical Mechanics (Newton’s Laws of Motion?)
Applies only to larger (atoms /molecules), slower (relative to c) particles.
Although CM leads to a number of inconsistencies in chemical behavior
it is still used for chemical topics where it provides accurate
predictions with more conceptually accessible explanations.
CM topics in chemistry include much of kinetics and
thermodynamics.
Theories applied to Chemistry
Classical Mechanics (Newton

e.g. F = ma)
There are two distinct approaches to studying classical
systems in chemistry ….
Macroscopic
Look at behavior of system as whole (P vs. V at
cst
T)
Summarize behavior as
a set of laws
(Boyle’s Law etc.)
Develop equations predicting the behavior of systems
. (P

V

)
Microscopic (Classical)
Develop a physical model explaining molecular behavior.
Apply
Laws of motion to individual particles
.
Extrapolate
to collection of particles (statistical mechanics).
Derive
equations predicting the behavior of
systems
(CM).

The Barometric Formula
This derivation is not in your text (see handout). However, it illustrates one
practical application of statistical mechanics …
The approximate atmospheric content as a function of altitude …
2
This model also serves as an example of the
Boltzman
Distribution Law,
a law derived using statistical mechanics, that illustrates how particles
distribute themselves over an energy gradient.
The
Boltzman
Distribution law is fundamental both to CM and QM.
In the latter it is required to explain the characteristics of spectroscopy
arising from the population distribution of quantum states.
We will apply the
Boltzman
Distribution law as a shortcut to avoid a
more exact but tedious derivation of the speed distribution function.

the rate of change in the
amount of solute
present at a position in a solution is
a function
of the area
observed, the
concentration gradient
, and the intrinsic ‘ease
of movement
’ of
the solute in the given solvent.
