Quantum Physics Full Course

Here’ is a great (and free) course covering quantum mechanics.

Quantum physics also known as Quantum mechanics is a fundamental theory in physics that provides a description of the physical properties of nature at the scale of atoms and subatomic particles. It is the foundation of all #quantum #physics including quantum chemistry, quantum field theory, quantum technology, and quantum information science.
