Subject and Problems on Second Exam 1. Understand solid angles and how they are used when describing scattering. The Rutherford experiment is a prototype. You should know how to integrate over a sphere. PT1.3, PT2.3, HW5: 4.8, 2, 3, 4 2. Use and derive the Bohr model and generalization. Especially important for estimates: PT1.1, PT2.1, HW6: all – for example 2,3,4 3. Debroglie waves, wave packets, and the uncertainty principle. HW7: 1 , HW7 3.19, 3.28, 3.30, Complex quizes 4. Skills with wave functions PT1.2,PT2.2 : (a) Determine probabilities to find an electron in a region of space given the wave function HW7: 5.7 (b) Determine the most likely position of finding an electron. HW7: 5.2 (c) Normalize the wave function HW7: 5.10 (d) Compute the average position, variance in position, average momentum and the variance in momentum. Determine the average kinetic energy and potential en- ergy many examples from HW7 and HW8 (e) Show that this or that function obeys the time dependent or time independent
