Unformatted text preview: Angular Momentum and Spin 1 I: Hydrogen atoms, angular momenta, and probabilities Ignoring spin (for now), an electron is known to be in a hydrogen atom state given by ( t = 0) = r 1 6 R 10 Y + r 1 6 R 21 Y 1 1 + cR 32 Y 1 2 A. Pick a value of c which normalizes the wavefunction. Is the value unique? (Why/why not?) B. What possible outcomes (with what associated probabilities) are there for a measurement of energy? C. Does your answer above depend on the time you wait before measuring energy? D. Consider the state given by H . Is it in any sense the outcome of a physical measurement of energy on our state ? X Check your results with a tutorial instructor. PHYS 3220 Tutorials 2009 c S. Pollock, S. Goldhaber, and the Physics Education Group University of Colorado, Boulder Angular Momentum and Spin 2 Continuing with the previous page, with (still) ( t = 0) = r 1 6 R 10 Y + r 1 6 R 21 Y 1 1 + cR 32 Y 1 2 E. What possible outcomes (with what associated probabilities) are there for a measurement of L 2 ? F. What possible outcomes (with what associated probabilities) are there for a measurement of L z ? G. Does your answer above depend on the time you wait before measuring L z ?...
