This problem illustrates two important points: • Three quantum numbers (n x ,n y ,n z ) are needed to identify the state of this threedimensional system. That is true for every 3D system. • More than one state can have the same energy: “Degeneracy”. Degeneracy reflects an underlying symmetry in the problem. 3 equivalent directions, because it’s a cube, not a rectangle. y z x L L L ( 29 2 2 2 2 2 sin sin sin 8 x y z y x z n n n x y z n n n N x y z L L L h E n n n mL π π π ψ = = + + Lecture 18, p 3 Consider a particle in a 2D well, with L x = L y = L . 1. Compare the energies of the (2,2), (1,3), and (3,1) states? a. E (2,2) > E (1,3) = E (3,1) b. E (2,2) = E (1,3) = E (3,1) c. E (2,2) < E (1,3) = E (3,1) 2. If we squeeze the box in the xdirection ( i.e. , L x < L y ) compare E (1,3) with E (3,1) . a. E (1,3) < E (3,1) b. E (1,3) = E (3,1) c.
