Problem Set #1 - 1 - Chem 442 Problem Set #1 DUE: Wednesday, Nov. 5, 2008 1) McQuarrie and Simon, Problem 1-8 2) a) McQ&S, 1-19 b) The ionization potential for a Na atom is 5.15 eV. Should this be (or is this) the same as the work function? Why or why not? 3) McQ&S, 1-25 4) McQ&S, 1-40 5) McQ&S, A-1 6) McQ&S, A-6 7) McQ&S, A-9 8) McQ&S, 2-4 9) McQ&S, B-1 10) After playing dice with Dr. Lisy for a while, you noticed that he was able to throw too may 7’s. While you weren’t looking, Dr. Lisy did something to the two dice. You took them and did some measurements.

Unformatted text preview: You observed the following probabilities. Die #1: p(1) = p(6) =0.071; p(2) = p(5) = 0.143; p(3) = p(4) = 0.286 Die #2: p(1) = p(2) = p(5) = p(6) = 0; p(3) = p(4) = 0.5 a) Determine <i>, <i 2 >, and σ i for each die. b) Compare with the values for the uniform distribution from your class notes. What is the correlation between the shape of the distribution and σ i ? 11) Estimate the minimum uncertainty in the speed of an electron in a one-dimensional region of length 2 a , where a = Bohr radius....
