bottom (floor) and with a width, L. Then, imagine perturbing this potential by introducing an
incline at the bottom , as shown below. The sloping floor of the perturbed potential starts at an
energy of zero at x = O and rises with a constant slope to an energy (height) of V* at x = L. Thus,
the perturbing Hamiltonian, H’ , can be written as H’ = (x/L)V*
Using ﬁrstorder perturbation theory, quantitatively describe what happens to the original
(unperturbed) energy levels as a result of this perturbation. In addition, draw both the original
levels and the new perturbed levels and relate them graphically using tie»lines.
Note: You will need to know the form of the 1D particle—in—a—box wavefunctions. You will also need to know how to evaluate an integral. Knowing or deriving the wavefunction is up to you.

Wednesday, Feb. 27, 2002 SSN Instructions: Please write your name and social security number in the blanks provided
above. Be sure that you are in the proper testing room based on your last name. This exam
should be completed in ink. No regrading will be considered for exams not completed in ink.
There are six (6) problems/questions on this exam. Please answer all of them. Percentage credit is
indicated for each. Please conﬁrm, before you begin, that your copy of this exam contains all of the
problems/questions. This is a closed book, closed notes exam. Show all of your work on the
pages provided. The use of calculators is not allowed. Problem #1 (Kinetics) (worth 16 %) Consider the following reaction mechanism:
HZOZ ————> H20 + O
o + crzc12 —~> C10 + CFgCl
C10 + 03 »—> Cl + 2 02
C1 + CFZCl —> CFzClg (a) What is the molecularity of each elementary step?
(b) Write the overall equation for the reaction.
(c) Identify the reaction intermediate(s). a) The first step is unimolecular; the three subsequent steps are bimolecular.
This is determined simply by counting the number of interacting particles on the left
sides of the four equations. Molecularity has meaning only in reference to elementary
reactions. ‘
b) The overall reaction is the sum of the steps: H202 + 03 —> H20 + 2 02.
c) The intermediates are 0, C10, CFgCl, and Cl. These species are produced in the
course of the reaction and later consumed. page 1 Problem #2 (Kinetics) (worth 17 %). / Write the overall reaction and the rate laws that correspond
to the following reaction mechanisms. Be sure to eliminate
intermediates from the answers. kl (a) 2 A + B (fast equilibrium) D+B E+F (slow) F "—* G (fast)
