Tachyons and superluminal wave groups
In the approximation that every inertial observer experiences a homogeneous, uniform flow of time and sees a space that is Euclidean, the arena of physics is Minkowskian and one speed is the same inExpand

Reaction Rate Theory
IN CHAPTERS 15 AND 16, WE SAW THAT ELEMENTARY REACTIONS may be unimolecular, bimolecular, or termolecular. In a unimolecular step, a molecule with excess energy concentrates enough energy in the bondExpand

Phenomenological Chemical Kinetics
IN CARRYING OUT CHEMICAL PROCESSES, one is concerned not only with whether a reaction can take place but also with the speed of the reaction. This must generally be neither too slow nor too fast. OneExpand

Vibrational and Radial Motion
IN A HYDROGENLIKE ATOM, the electron is bound to the nucleus by a Coulomb potential. This has the form $$V(r) = - \frac{{Z{e^2}}}{{4\pi \varepsilon r}},$$ (12.1) where r is the interparticleExpand
Basic Quantum Mechanics
ACCORDING TO CLASSICAL MECHANICS, each infinitesimal part of a given system is localized at a point at any given time. As time progresses, this point travels along a definite curve at a determinableExpand
Relationships among Reactants
A CHEMICAL REACTION GENERALLY INVOLVES rearrangement of the electron structures about atomic cores. Bonds between atoms may be broken and reformed. One or more elementary processes may be involved.
