8. (a) Let the quantum numbers of the pair in question be n and n + 1, respectively. We note that E n +1 E n = ( n +1) 2 h 2 8 mL 2 n 2 h 2 8 mL 2 = (2 n +1) h 2 8 mL 2 Therefore, E n +1 E n =(2 n +1) E 1 .Now E n +1 E n = E 5 =5 2 E 1 =25 E 1 =(2 n +1) E 1 , which leads to 2 n + 1 = 25, or n = 12. (b) Now let E n +1

Unformatted text preview: − E n = E 6 = 6 2 E 1 = 36 E 1 = (2 n + 1) E 1 , which gives 2 n +1 = 36, or n = 17 . 5. This is not an integer, so it is impossible to Fnd the pair that Fts the requirement....
