Unformatted text preview: Homework #4 — PHYS 402 — Spring 2011 Deadline: Wednesday, March 2, 2011, in class Professor Victor Yakovenko Office: 2115 Physics Web page: http://www2.physics.umd.edu/ ~ yakovenk/teaching/ Textbook: David J. Griffiths, Introduction to Quantum Mechanics 2nd edition, Pearson Prentice Hall, 2005, ISBN 0131118927 Do not forget to write your name and the homework number! Be sure to answer all additional questions asked in this assignment! Total score is 43 points. Ch. 4 Quantum Mechanics in Three Dimensions 1. Problem 4.36, 8 points. Use the table of the ClebschGordan coefficients on p. 188. Part (a): Instead of the textbook question, do the following problem. Consider a particle with spin 3/2 and a particle with spin 1 in such a state that the total spin is 3/2 and its z component is ¯ h/ 2. If you measured the z component of the angular momentum of the spin3/2 particle, what values might you find and with what probabilities? If you measured the z component of the angular momentum of the spin1 particle, what values might you find and with what probabilities?...
