Unformatted text preview: Homework #1 Part 1 (Due January 18 th , 2011) Please show all work on a separate sheet of paper. 1. Show that e x is an eigenfunction of the operator g G g G . What is the eigenvalue? (2 pts) 2. Why is it impossible to solve Schrodingers Equation for systems with two or more electrons? (2pts.) 3. Write out a theoretical Be 2 electron configuration symbolically [ex: H 2 = (1s) 2 ]. (1 pt) 4. We can reduce the energy expression for a theoretical wavefunction, , by using linear combinations of other wavefunctions, , as shown below. uU uU Can be simplified to : where c n is given by: Subtracting the ground state energy of the system, E , from either side of the simplified energy expression gives us: Finally, here comes the question: Explain why the right side of this equation is always positive,...
