1 ECE 4060: Introduction to Quantum and Statistical Mechanics Quiz 1 Solution Prob. 1. Given a wave function of a free particle at t = 0 as: ( ) ( ) = otherwise x x ik A x 0 1 1 exp 0 , 0 ψ (a) Find A . (5 pts) By normalization requirement of = 1 * dx ψ ψ , 2 1 = A . (b) Graphically illustrate ( ) ( ) 2 0 , 0 , x x P ψ = and Re ( ψ (x,0)), assuming 0 < k 0 < 1. (10 pts) (c) Assuming a dispersion relation of m k 2 2 h = ω , graphically illustrate P(x, t) and Re ( ψ (x,t)) (10 pts) (*** Due to a critical error in Homework 2, this problem will not count. ***) Prob. 2. Given a wave function of a free particle at t = 0 as: ( ) ( ) ( ) 2 1 2 1 exp 2 1 exp 2 3 0 , k k x ik x ik x + = ψ P(x,0) Re ( ψ (x,0)) x x P(x,t) Re ( ψ (x,t)) x x 1/2 1 1 1 1 2 / 1
