Angular Momentum and Spin Pretest Name: _______________________________________ CU ID: ____________________ In the following questions, we will use quantum states made up of the hydrogen energy eigenstates: The energy of one of these states is: where E 1 is the energy of the ground state (-13.6 eV). For simplicity, we will leave out the coordinates and use: Q1: Consider the election in a hydrogen atom to initially be in the state: a) What is the probability of measuring the energy of this state and obtaining E 2 ? A. 1 3 at t=0 but something different at t>0 B. 1 3 at t=0 but something different at t>0 C. 1 3 always D. 1 3 always E. Something else. b) Explain your answer. © 2010 Steve Goldhaber and the Physics Education Group University of Colorado at
