123 Chapter 6 ! The Schrödinger Equation 6-1. Also, . The Schrödinger equation is then, with these substitutions, . Because the left side is real and the right side is a pure imaginary number, the proposed Q does not satisfy Schrödinger’s equation. 6-2. For the Schrödinger equation: Substituting these into the Schrödinger equation yields: , which is true, provided , i.e., if For the classical wave equation: (from Equation 6-1) From above: and also Substituting into Equation 6-1 (with Q replacing õ and v replacing c ) , which is true for . 6-3. (a) Substituting into the time-independent Schrödinger equation, Solving for V(x) ,

Chapter 6 ! The Schrödinger Equation 124 (Problem 6-3 continued) where This is the equation of a parabola centered at x = 0. (b )The classical system with this dependence is the harmonic oscillator. 6-4. (a) (b) The classical turning points are the points where or . That occurs when , or when . (c )For a harmonic oscillator , so Thus,

Chapter 6 ! The Schrödinger Equation 127 6-9. (a) The ground state of an infinite well is For m = m p , L = 0.1 nm : (b) For m = m p , L = 1 fm : 6-10. The ground state wave function is (n = 1) (Equation 6-32) The probability of finding the particle in ) x is approximately: (a) for (b) (c) for x = L, 6-11. The second excited state wave function is (n = 3) (Equation 6-32). The probability of finding the particle in ) x is approximately: (a) (b) (c) for x = L,

Chapter 6 ! The Schrödinger Equation 128 6-12. (Equation 6-24) 6-13. (a) (b) 6-14. (a) This is an infinite square well of width L . V(x) = 0 and . From uncertainty principle: and (b) The solution to the Schrödinger equation for the ground state is: So, The result in (a) is about 1/10 of the computed value, but has the correct dependence on h , m , and L . 6-15. (a) For the ground state, . (b) Recall that state n has n half-wavelengths between x = 0 and x = L , so for n = 3, or .
