PHY4221 Quantum Mechanic I (Fall term of 2004) Problem Set No. 2 (Answers) Question 1: (a): The normalization is quite easy: { } { } 2 2 0 2 1 exp 2 2 exp 2 dxA a x dxA ax A a -∞ = - = - = (1) Thus we have A a = . Then we have: ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 2 3 2 | | | | exp exp 2 1 1 2 2 2 2 1 ,0 p dx p x x dx p x x a px dx i a x a p p a i a i a a p a a a k k ψ ψ π π π π φ -∞ = = Ψ = - - ÷ = + + - = + ÷ = + = h h h h h h h h (2) (b): Using the propagator, it is easy to obtain: ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 , | | ,0 0 | ,0 | | 0 , ; ,0 | 0 , ; ,0 ,0 x t x t x U t dx x U t x x dxK x t x x dxK x t x x ψ ψ ψ ψ Ψ = = = = = Ψ (3) ( 29 ( 29 2 , ; ,0 exp 2 2 m m K x t x x x i t i t π = - - h h (4)

    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.
