What problems in chemistry or materials science could be solved with 100 fault-tolerant qubits?

With $N$ fault-tolerant qubits we can find the ground state energy of a system of electrons, with $N$ spin orbitals in the basis set that is used to represent the electronic wavefunction. This means ...
