This portion of the text will explore the Semiclassical model with BlochApp. It is broken down into sections in which particular results are discussed. A number of questions are posed to the reader which can be solved using BlochApp. The principle effects that will be examined are: Rabi Oscillations or Optical Nutation, the Bloch Vector, the Rotating Frame, Collisions, Spontaneous Emission, Decay Constants, Free Induction Decay, the Rotating Wave Approximation, and the Bloch--Siegert Shift. Various files are included with BlochApp that have the situations below already setup.
