Chem 370 February 20, 2008 Sample Problem from Math Chapter D The H atom 2 2p orbital is a wavefunction with the following form in Cartesian coordinates ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 1 2 2 2 2 1 2 2 2 2 2p 2p 1 2 2 2 2 z z x y z z N x y z exp 2 x y z + + ψ = + + - + + r (1) and the following much simpler form in spherical polar coordinates ( 29 r 2 2p 2p z z N re cos . - ψ = θ r (2) Our problem is to choose 2p z N so that ( 29 2p z ψ r is normalized. This may be done by choosing 2p z N as ( 29 ( 29 z 1 2 2p 2p 2p 2p 2p z z z z N N N - �� = ψ ψ �� 6 dr r r . (3) Using the Cartesian form for h dr dx dy dz h - - - I = � � � dr (4) and Eqs.

Unformatted text preview: integrals. This is not true in Cartesian coordinates. Let us perform the three integrals in Eq. (7). Integral 1. 2 1 I d 2 = = . (8a) Integral 2. 2 2 I sin cos d . = Letting y cos = and thus 2 dy sin d , I = - becomes 1 2 2 1 2 I y dy 3-= = . (8b) Integral 3 We need the result at the bottom of text page 244, which is n ax n 1 n! x e dx a h-+ = . Using this relation we have that 4 r 3 I r e dr 4! 24 h-= = = . (8c) Thus comparing Eq. (7) and (8) gives that 1 2 3 I I I I 32 = = . (9) Thus from Eq. (6) T ....

### 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.
