- Calculate the phase shift for the spherical potential well for both and attractive and repulsive potential.
- Calculate the phase shift for a hard sphere
for and for .
What are the limits for large and small?
- Show that at large , the radial flux is large compared to the angular components of the flux
for wave-functions of the form
.
- Calculate the difference in wavelengths of the 2p to 1s transition in Hydrogen and Deuterium.
Calculate the wavelength of the 2p to 1s transition in positronium.
- Tritium is a unstable isotope of Hydrogen with a proton and two neutrons in the nucleus.
Assume an atom of Tritium starts out in the ground state.
The nucleus (beta) decays suddenly into that of He.
Calculate the probability that the electron remains in the ground state.
- A hydrogen atom is in the state
.
What are the possible energies that can be measured and what are the probabilities of each?
What is the expectation value of ?
What is the expectation value of ?
What is the expectation value of ?
- What is , the probability distribution of for the Hydrogen energy eigenstate ?
You may find the expansion of in terms of Bessel functions useful.
- The differential equation for the 3D harmonic oscillator
has been solved in the notes, using the same techniques as we used for Hydrogen.
Use the recursion relations derived there to write out the wave functions
for the three lowest energies.
You may write them in terms of the standard but please write out the radial parts of the wavefunction completely.
Note that there is a good deal of degeneracy in this problem so the three lowest energies actually means 4 radial wavefunctions
and 10 total states.
Try to write the solutions and in terms of the solutions in cartesian coordinates with the same energy
