Exam 2 --- 2004 --- SOLUTIONS I. Multiple choice 1.b., 2.d., 3.c., 4.a., 5.c. II. a. k 1 2 = 2mE/ h' 2 , k 1 =3.8x10 11 m -1 ( h' is meant to be h-bar) λ =1.7x10 -11 m . b. Propagates, since E > V = 2.5 eV. So h' 2 k 2 2 /2m + 2.5 eV = 3.0 eV or h' 2 k 2 2 /2m = 0.5 eV. Then k 2 = 1.55x10 11 m -1 . III. a. Take the 2nd derivative of the wavefunction ψ with respect to x and obtain -k 2 ψ . Then the left hand side of the equation is -( h' 2 /2m)(-k 2 ) ψ and the right hand side is just E ψ ; the ψ cancels out showing that this is a solution, providing the constant factors are equal. b. ( h' 2 /2m)k 2 = E c. At x=0 and L the wavefunction must vanish. So kL=n π . Hence k=n π /L. d. E n =(h 2 /8mL 2 )(n 2 ) e. 2 electrons can occupy the lowest energy state, n=1. The 3rd and 4th electron must go to the next highest level, n=2, the 5th and 6th to n=3, and so on, until all N electrons are accounted for. So the last pair will be in the n=N/2 level.

Unformatted text preview: The last electron will thus have energy E=(N/2) 2 (h 2 /8mL 2 )=(h 2 /32m)(N/L) 2 . f. Bosons can all occupy the same energy state, so n=1 and E= (h 2 /8mL 2 ). IV. a. 1s 2 2s 2 2p 6 3s 2 3p 6 4s 1 Note highest is in 4s not 3d. b. -Z 2 E /n 2 = -19 2 x13.6/4 2 eV = 307 eV c. -Z screen 2 E /16=4.34 eV, so Z screen =2.26 d. Must add 4.34 eV to ionize K. 3.6 eV is released when Cl absorbs electron. So net of 0.74 eV must be added to pair of atoms. V. a. 1s state is allowed (with opposite m s to other electron). E 1s = -Z screen 2 E /1 = -24.8 eV. b. 3d -> 2p -> 1s, each step must have | ∆ l|=1. c. E(3d)-E(2p)=-Z screen 2 E /9 + Z screen 2 E /4 = 3.4 eV E(2p)-E(1s)= -Z screen 2 E /4 + Z screen 2 E /1 = 18.6 eV Then λ 3,2 =hc/(3.4 eV) = 3.6x10-7 m and λ 2,1 =hc/(18.6 eV) = 6.7x10-8 m....

### 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.
