Hi!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

One can easily analyze the Hydrogen Atom since it is a two body problem.

But how do you apply Quantum Theory to model atoms (such as iron) which are much larger and predict their behaviour in an environment?

My guess is that you use statistical mechanics, but I only just started a course and it is basically limited to heat.

thank you
