AE 6710 - Molecular Gas Dynamics

Analysis of basic gas properties at the molecular level. Kinetic theory; molecular collisions, the Boltzmann equation. Maxwellian distribution function. Quantum mechanics; the Schrodinger equations, quantum energy states for translation, rotation, vibration, and electronic models of atoms and molecules. Statistical mechanics; the Boltzmann relation, the Boltzmann energy distribution, partition functions. These ideas are combined for the analysis of a chemically reacting gas at the molecular level.

Credits: 3 hours

Notes: Open to graduate students only.
