Chem 110A MQII_2009 2 1. (30 points) ( Problem 8-22) The total spin angular momentum operator for a two- electron system is ˆ S z , total = ˆ S z 1 + ˆ S z 2 Show that ! (1,2) = 1 2 1 s " (1) 1 s # (1) 1 s (2) 1 s (2) is an eigenfunction of ˆ S z , total , and give the eigenvalue associated with it. ( The notation 1 s (1) means 1 s ( r 1 ) (1) where 1 s ( r 1 ) is a 1s orbital ) We start by writing the LHS of the eigenvalue equation ˆ S z , total " (1,2) = ˆ S z 1 + ˆ S z 2 ( ) 1 2 1 s (1) 1 s $ (1) 1 s (2) 1 s (2) = 1 2 ˆ S
