HW Set #5 Due 10/21/08 (at the beginning of class) Work the following problems in chapter 4 32, 36, 38, 60, 64 Problems from Chapter 5 2, 4, 6, 10 Other problems from Dr. Vanden Bout for the particle in a box problem. 1. What is the probability of finding the particle in the box between x=0 and x=L/2 for the n=1 state? Show your math explicitly What about the n=3 state? You can simply reason this one if you like. 2. For the n=4 state at what distance is the probability of finding the particle the largest? At what distance are the nodes?

Unformatted text preview: 3. If you redefined the edges of the particle in the box such that is started at x=-L/2 and ended and x=L/2, what would the lower energy wavefunction look like? 4. What is the zero point energy for a 3-dimensional particle in box whose size are L x = 1 Å, L y = 2Å, and L z = 1Å? Other problems for the hydrogen atom. 1. What is the most probable radius for the 1s H-atom wavefunction? 1s in He + ? 2. At what distance is the radial node of the 2s H-atom wavefunction?...
