6 E vs. k
7 Momentum Space Let us consider an imaginary three dimensional space with axes p x , p y , p z as the principal axes. Momentum vector p with components p x , p y , p z will be represented as a vector originating from the origin and terminating at the point whose coordinates are p x , p y , p z . Each set of integer values for n x , n y , n z will correspond to a point in the momentum space.

8 Momentum Space Infinite number of representative points (called phase points) in the momentum space. Points are separated by h/L x along the p x axis, h/L y along the p y axis and h/L z along the p z axis. The vector connecting the origin to the phase point n x , n y , n z represents the momentum of the state n x , n y , n z .

### 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.
