PHYSICS 6 SPRING 2006 HOMEWORK 4 (due Thurs. Mar.16) Read: Goldstein’s Notes on Probability (Course Documents) Hoffmann , Chapters 2-8, 11, 13, 14 to p.186. This is to be read over the next two weeks. It covers the historical development of quantum physics. You may choose to read all the chapters - they're interesting. Feynman , Chapter 6 - read for next assignment. Problems: (1 and 2 use some basic concepts in probability. There will be a handout.) 1. Assume you have a single normal six-sided die (one of a pair of dice). (a) What is the probability of getting one 5 in one toss of the die? (b) What is the probability of getting only one 5 in two tosses of the die? (c) What is the probability of getting at least one 5 in two tosses of the die? (d) What is the probability of getting 0 or 1 or 2 or 3 fives in three tosses of the die? (e) What is the probability of getting only one 5 in eight tosses of the die? (f)
