In this chapter we commence with the solution of the Schrodinger equation in three dimension and consider the case when the potential has spherical symmetry. This requires the introduction of spherical polar coordinates and the reduction of the three dimensional partial differential equation to a set of ordinary differential equations. The solution of these equations for the angular dependence will allow us to examine the rotational spectrum of diatomic molecules.
