16 - 2 5.73 Lecture #16 modified 10/1/02 10:06 AM One reason that the result from second-order perturbation theory applied directly to V(x) = k x 2 /2 + a x 3 and the term-by-term comparison of the power series expansion of the Morse oscillator are not identical is that contributions are neglected from higher derivatives of the Morse potential to the (n + 1/2) 2 term in the energy level expression.

    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.
