Physics 4021: Introduction to Quantum Mechanics I Homework Assignment 1 Due in class: Thurs, Sept. 13, 2007 1.One of the dramatic realizations of modern physics is that all fundamental entities exhibit both wave and particle characteristics. Thus, (a) classical waves, such as light, exhibit particle characteristics, and (b) classical particles, such as electrons, exhibit wave characteristics. For each of cases (a) and (b) above, describe one or two paragraphs for an experiment that demonstrated the corresponding behavior. 2.In class, we introduce a notation eiθ=cos+ isin. Using this relation, find the simplified form of the following expressions.
