EXAM 2 Thursday, March 6, 2008 in .  Nome This exam consists of four (4) questions on fourteen (.14) pages.
A Formula Sheet and the Figure needed to do Problem 1 are included at the end of the exam. You must Show all work and reasoning to obtain any credit. Use answer boxes where
provided. Finally there are three extra credit questions in Problem 4 worth 15 points. 1. (15 points)
Using the ﬁgure at the back of the exam, explain why the actual behavior of the ground
state (V = 0) of the onedimension harmonic oscillator (1D H0) is radically different from classical behavior. You should especially describe phenomena like'zero point motion and
its relation to the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle, classically forbidden behavior, and so 011.
