Unformatted text preview: Chem 3890 Physical Chemistry I Fall 2009 Chemistry 3890 Problem Set 8 Fall 2009 Due: in class, Friday, November 13 Last revised: November 6, 2009 Problem 1 A rotor is prepared in the state ( , ) = N sin 4 [ ] exp[ i ] . (1) 1. Determine the value of N such that the state is normalized. Note : do not forget the weight factor sin in the integration over . 2. Use SphericalPlot3D to plot | | 2 for the normalized state. 3. If the z component of angular momentum, L z , is measured, what values will be found and with what probabilities? 4. If the square of the angular momentum, L 2 is measured, what values will be found and with what probabilities? [Consider possible lscript values in the range 0 lscript 20.] When evaluating expansion coefficients ( Y lscript,m | ) , use the result of part 3 above in order to decide which m value(s) to use. 5. Calculate the value of ( L 2 ) for state . Do this two ways: (a) Direct evaluation of ( | L 2 |...
