Welcome to The Quantum World!

This course is an introduction to quantum chemistry: the application of quantum theory to atoms, molecules, and materials. You’ll learn about wavefunctions, probability, special notations, and approximations that make quantum mechanics easier to apply. You’ll also learn how to use Python to program quantum-mechanical models of atoms and molecules.

HarvardX has partnered with DataCamp to create assignments in Python that allow students to program directly in a browser-based interface. You will not need to download any special software, but an up-to-date browser is recommended.

This course has serious prerequisites. You will need to be comfortable with college-level chemistry and calculus. Some prior programming experience is also encouraged.

The Quantum World is ideal for:

  • Chemistry majors who want extra material alongside an on-campus course
  • Chemistry majors at an institution that does not offer quantum chemistry
  • Physics or CompSci majors who want to branch out to chemistry
  • Graduate students refreshing on quantum mechanics before their qualifying exams
  • Professional chemists who want to brush up on their skills

In Part 2 of Science and Cooking (Part 1 is available here), we will be visited by more world-famous chefs who use a number of different styles and techniques in their cooking.  Each chef will demonstrate how he or she prepares delicious and interesting creations, and we will explore how fundamental scientific principles make them possible.

Topics will include:

  • How cooking changes food texture
  • Making emulsions and foams
  • Phase changes in cooking

You will also have the opportunity to become an experimental scientist in your very own laboratory — your kitchen! By following along with the recipes of the week, taking precise measurements, and making skillful observations, you will learn to think like both a chef and a scientist.  This practice will prepare you for the final project, when you will design and perform an experiment to analyze a recipe of your choice from a scientific perspective.

The lab is certainly one of the most unique components of this course — after all, in what other science course can you eat your experiments?

This course focuses on the physical changes that occur during cooking.  If you are interested in signing up for “Part 1,” which focuses more on the chemistry of cooking, you can do so here.

This course is about the Laplace Transform, a single very powerful tool for understanding the behavior of a wide range of mechanical and electrical systems: from helicopters to skyscrapers, from light bulbs to cell phones. This tool captures the behavior of the system and displays it in highly graphical form that is used every day by engineers to design complex systems.

This course is centered on the concept of the transfer function of a system. Also called the system function, the transfer function completely describes the response of a system to any input signal in a highly conceptual manner. This visualization occurs not in the time domain, where we normally observe behavior of systems, but rather in the “frequency domain.” We need a device for moving from the time domain to the frequency domain; this is the Laplace transform.

We will illustrate these principles using concrete mechanical and electrical systems such as tuned mass dampers and RLC circuits.

Nuestras economías están sedientas de energía. Sin energía la economía mundial simplemente se detendría en seco; no habría generación suficiente de electricidad, combustibles para los automóviles, transporte público, transporte terrestre de mercancías, ya sea por ferrocarril o autobús. No se podrían mover las mercancías por vía marítima, la producción alimenticia sufriría de problemas, el suministro de agua potable se vería comprometido.

La energía ha permitido desde finales del Siglo XVIII, un desarrollo sin igual en los ámbitos científico, tecnológico y económico de nuestra sociedad. Hemos gozado, hasta ahora, de un suministro relativamente barato de energía a través de los combustibles fósiles, generando un impacto ambiental negativo.

La trayectoria seleccionada de consumo de combustibles fósiles hasta el momento, no es sostenible a largo plazo. De ahí el reto que no debemos esquivar, aun cuando lo podríamos negar: ¿qué debemos hacer para lograr una supervivencia futura hacia una economía de bajo carbono con una menor dependencia de los combustibles fósiles, y así asegurar que las generaciones futuras tengan la posibilidad de disfrutar una mejor calidad de vida?

Estamos ante un hito histórico sobre cómo debemos usar y apropiarnos de los recursos naturales, así como trabajar en disminuir la pobreza y desigualdad social.

Este curso te permitirá adentrarte al fascinante mundo de la energía. Los contenidos del curso, además de brindarte herramientas para la interpretación y manejo de información básica sobre la energía, te llevarán a través de los cambios históricos ligados con la energía que han sido fundamentales en el desarrollo de la sociedad moderna. Los contenidos del curso te ayudarán a la resolución de preguntas como: ¿ha sido siempre la energía un factor de cambio en el desarrollo de la sociedad? ¿la era del petróleo se terminará antes de que se termine el petróleo? ¿cuál es la importancia actual de los energéticos en la economía? ¿te imaginas cómo se obtendrá la energía necesaria para mantener nuestra calidad de vida en el futuro?

Every day, we see concrete used all around us – to build our houses, offices, schools, bridges, and infrastructure. But few people actually understand what gives concrete its strength, resistance, and utility.

The aim of this course is to offer basic cement chemistry to practitioners, as well as new students in the fields of chemistry and engineering.

You will learn how cement is made and hydrated, as well as the environmental and economical benefits it offers. You’ll learn to test your samples in isocalorimetry in order to track the hydration and to prepare and observe samples by scanning electron microscopy. In the last two weeks of the course, you will also learn how X-ray diffraction works and how to apply it to cements.

Because the course is designed for beginning students, it’s not necessary to have a cement background, however basic concepts in chemistry and crystallography will help. This course lasts 6 weeks, during which you can take theoretical courses and tutorials to test the cement in the laboratory.

This course is an introduction to mechanics and follows a standard first-semester university physics course. You will learn fundamental mechanics concepts and mathematical problem solving required for all STEM fields.

The course begins with kinematics, where you will learn to use equations and graphs to describe the position, velocity, and acceleration of an object, and how those quantities are related through calculus. You will then learn how forces affect motion through Newton’s Laws, and how to understand and calculate several different forces, including gravitational, normal force, drag force, and friction force. The concept of energy will be covered, including kinetic energy, potential energy, and how they are affected by work. You will learn how to use the conservation of energy to solve motion problems. Finally, momentum, another “quantity of motion” will be described. You will learn how to calculate momentum, about its relationship to Newton’s laws, and how to use it to solve motion problems, including collisions.

This course is valuable preparation for the equivalent on-campus course, or as supplementary material.
