Readers studying the abstract field of quantum physics need to solve plenty of practical, especially quantitative, problems. This book contains tutorial problems with solutions for the textbook Quantum Physics for Beginners. It places emphasis on basic problems of quantum physics together with some instructive, simulating, and useful applications. A considerable range of complexity is presented by these problems, and not too many of them can be solved using formulas alone.
