something you must act upon it What we are measuring becomes perturbed in process and we are simply seeing how it responds to our perturbation so we never see it as it exists in our absence In QM all information about system is contained in a wavefunction 11 instead of trajectory ll x t 11 is not a physical observable but stores info To get info out of 11 must mathematically operate on it ie To find energy E use the energy operator Fl called the hamiltonian operator For every physical observable there is a corresponding operator The fundamental equation of QM to solve is Schrodinger Eqn

is eigenvalue of energy operator or H operator wavefunction of system is an eigenfunction of the H operator Operators for some properties are such that 11 is not an eigenfunction of that operator Examples position momentum Meaning when 11 is not an eigenfct of a particular operator a different value is obtained for every measurement of that property associated with the operator eg repeated measurements of position or momentum of H atom e39 give different results every time Repeated measurements of energy gives same value 5 When measurement produces indefinite values for a physical observable we are interested in the average value called the expectation value observable Q corresp operator Q expectation value of Q lt 2gt a fq de 1p must be properly normalized first Example 1

energies are similar in the separated atoms 2 their shapes are conducive to good overlap Eg these give no overlap due to their shape and sign of wave function 18 The construction of energy level diagrams for arbitrary heteronuclear diatomics is not straightforward and requires calculation The Variation Principle a systematic way of taking linear combinations of atomic orbitals in correct proportions to produce the most optimum approximation to the MO s VP is based on the fact that approximate MO s will always have a higher energy than the true exact MO s energy Eg in HF ifI had constructed the MO as mm 101p15H 101p2pz F with equal coefficients the energy of this 1pm gt Etrue Consequence of VP gt vary the weighting coefficients until you get the lowest energy you can find

combinations of lots of atomic orbitals not just two This is called expanding your basis set In principle by using a complete basis set you should obtain an exact solution upon using the variation principle In practice a complete set would need to have all atomic orbitals full and empty on all the atoms in your molecule and that is an infinite set 21 HF MNDO CALCULATION RESULTS MDRAC VERSION
