Problem Set 02 Note: The following problem set is is due September 19 by midnight. Please return directly to me in my office Rutherford 321. If I’m not there slip your assignment below my door. 1. Give short answers to the following questions: (a) In the Stern-Gerlach experiment the silver atoms do not exactly form two parallel lines on the photographic plate. Instead the end points of the lines converge. Explain why do we see such an effect. Also can you speculate what effects do the massive proton have on the splitting? (b) Imagine a massive ball of charge Q and mass M is spinning about its axis. The charge Q is uniformly distributed over the whole volume of the ball. Determine the magnetic moment μ associated with this motion. How does the magnetic moment change if I flatten the ball to a disc of finite thickness? Assume that the disc continues to rotate about its axis. (c) The elements a ij of two given n × n matrices have the following properties: a ij = ± a ij

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
