Physics 742 – Graduate Quantum Mechanics 2 Solution Set O 1. [20] A hydrogen atom is in the 1s ground state while being bathed in light of sufficient frequency to excite it to the n = 2 states. The light is traveling in the + z direction and has circular polarization, ( ) 1 2 ˆ ˆ i = + ε i j . (a) [10] Calculate all relevant dipole moments FI r for final states 2 lm .

    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.
