Other problems.
1.
There is another quantum mechanical problem similar to the particle in a box, that is
the particle on a ring (fixed radius in 2d).
This problem is one dimensional as the only
variable is the angle around the ring.
ˆ

where m is the mass.
The 2
nd
derivative depends on the value of the radius and the angle
such that the Hamiltonian is

where n= 0,±1,±2,….
What are the energies.
And yes the wavefunctions are complex where i = sqrt(1)
2.
What is the most probable radius for the 1s Hatom wavefunction?
