l. (15 points) Consider a harmonic oscillator with the potential energy V(x) : (1/2)kx2. fhe allowed energies are En: (n+1)hrrl (n:0, 1,2,3,. ..), and r:1L/-)t", k is the force constant. Suppose the force constant is changed by a small amount e, i.e. k' : (1+r)k. (a) (3 points) What is H'? / t+'= +Hx._ tkr- =L(r+e)kx--*kxo (b) (6 points) What is the first order correction to the energy, i.e. E,,1? Hint use the virial theorem: <T>: <V>.
