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 47 points.
Ch. 9 TimeDependent Perturbation Theory
1. Problem 9.1, 10 points.
Matrix elements of electric ﬁeld between the
n
= 1 and
n
= 2 states of hydrogen.
First, write down explicitly the wave functions of the states involved in the problem.
Then, examine the integrals for the matrix elements and argue which integrals vanish
identically by symmetry. Finally, calculate the remaining nonzero integrals.
Additional question:
Verify explicitly that results of your calculations are consistent
with the selection rules described in Sec. 9.3.3.
