I confirm that I strictly obey the academic ethic code when taking this exam. ION-Ii; (i) Five questions + one extra credit questionLPlease budget your time. You may want to start with the parts you are more familiar with. Formula sheets are attached at the end. Need more formula? Please raise your hand. (ii) it is very important to show calculation or algebraic details. (iii) Theme and coverage of SE#‘l is shown below. (iv) Academic ethics need to be strictly obeyed.

The theme of this exam is to put this flowchart into practice. Step #1, “Spectroscopic Phenomena“) “Physical Model", asks fora high level of experience, insight, creativity, and original thinking (that's exactly why we integrate “research fro tiers” and “advanced topics”into this coarse) and may be better left for problen'gfat exercises. in the following, we will practice the other 3 steps.

In this course, we have adopted different mechanisms to make the lecturestmaterials more entertaining and impressive, in order to communicate serious, deep concepts in QM.

But CM totally fails to explain some important phenomena associated with microscopic objects which are the focus of modem chemistry. For example, CM fails to explain why waves (e.g.. electromagnetic waves or light) exhibit particle property. as shown in the “photoelectric effect" experiment.

For example, the Hamiltonian operator of a quantum system originates from the Hamilton function of a classical system, which is defined by Sir Hamilton as H(x,p)=p2/(2m) + V(x), where V(X) is the potential energy and p is the linear momentum. Please follow the following 3 steps to derive the Hamiltonian operator in region II for a particle in a box shown below (note: the box edge is at x=0 and x=-L) i) Write down the Hamilton function in CM for region ll; ii) Promote the CM variables into QM operators; ML iii) Use “Schrodinger representation" x = x and px = -ih d/dx (originates from “Dirac’s quantum conditions") to define the action of the Hamiltonian operator H to any function: 7 l l - ff (.

Dirac’s quantum condition says that the representation of x and p can be arbitrary, supposing that the representation satisfies the commutator [x, p] = in. Recall that the commutator is defined as [A,B]=AB-BA. Someone suggests the following representation: x 9 a/ap, p -> ihp. Please prove by algebra whether this representation satisfies [x, p] = ih and is therefore a valid choice. Please show algebraic details.
