Unformatted text preview: 2 , 1 , 1 = 6( h 2 / 8 mL 2 ). Each of these states can be occupied by a spin up and a spin down electron, so six electrons in all can occupy the states. This completes the assignment of the eight electrons to singleparticle states. The ground state energy of the system is E gr = (2)(3)( h 2 / 8 mL 2 ) + (6)(6)( h 2 / 8 mL 2 ) = 42( h 2 / 8 mL 2 )....
