Unformatted text preview: Physics 246 Eighth Homework Set Due: April 3, 2009 La) Consider the Hamiltonian H = .481 '82 where S] - 82 are spin operators of two spin-1/2 particles. Express H in terms of 32. S22 and (S; + Sg)2. Use this to compute the energy spectrum. What is the degeneracy of each level? b) Now consider H=Asl'SQ+B(Sg'S3+Sl-S3) for three spin-‘1/2 particles. Extend the technique of a) to determine the energy levels and their degeneracies. 2. For the two dimensional oscillator 1 V = 3mw2(:i:2 + 3/2) the energy levels are given by Emm = hw[2n +1+ lml]. a) Derive the radial Schrodinger equation in terms of p where p2 = (moo/M13. b) Eliminate the p2 term by writing R = exp[— p2 / 2] f ( p) and eliminate the p“2 term by writing f (p) = p""'9(p). c) Now set p2 = :c and show that one obtains the radial equation for the hydrogen atom. Verify the result for Em", and determine the wave functions. 3. Consider the Runge—Lenz vector 1 K— [pr—pr]+%r. 2me2 a) Consider ﬁrst the classical case. Show that K is a constant (i.e., conserved) vector. 1)) Now show that in the quantum mechanical case [K, H] = 0 where H=£-2--i. r 8v %va+f%j§f_ b) R: 51%? f R’—» 12-60%?

### 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.
