Unformatted text preview: Problem Set #4 Due: 5 pm, Friday, 10/7/11 1.) Time Evolution of a Wave Function To get a sense of how a wave function evolves, plot the real and imaginary parts of the wave function Ψ(x, t), and |Ψ(x, t)|2 for Problem 1 of PS3, after the wall has been moved from x = L to x = 2L, at six different times: t = 0, T0/5 , 2T0/5, 3T0/5, 4T0/5, T0 where T0 is the period of the ground state of the well with length = 2L. In the Fourier expansion, you only need to include three terms: the ground, first excited and second excited states of the expanded well. Griffiths: 2.21 (Free Particle) 2.29 ((Odd Bound State Solutions to FSW) 2.22 (Stationary Gaussian Packet) 2.32 (FSW Transmission Coefficient) Compare and contrast the following two problems from Griffiths, and explain whether the λ/2 shift occurs at the potential step-­‐up or the step-­‐down? 2.34 (Step-­‐up Potential) 2.35(Step-­‐down Potential) 2.33(Potential Barrier Transmission Coefficient) ...

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
