Subtotal /85 1 Ph 214, Spring 2007 Exam # 3 Multiple Choice Name: (no name, no score !) 1. [5 pts] A particle with the spatial wave function ( x ) = Ae ikx = A [cos kx + i sin kx ], where A and k are constants, can be thought of as a plane wave traveling along the x-axis. Which of the following statements most accurately describes the probability of finding the particle at any location along the x-axis? (A) It is equally likely to find the particle anywhere along the x-axis. 2. [5 pts] The positronium atom consists of an electron and a positron bound together by their mutual Coulomb attraction and moving about their center of mass, which is located halfway between them. Thus the positronium atom is somewhat analogous to a hydrogen atom. The ground-state of hydrogen is 13.6 electron volts. What is the ground-state binding energy of positronium? (B) 1 2 13 . 6 eV 3. [5 pts] Two coherent sources of visible monochromatic light form an interference pattern on a screen. If the relative phase of the sources is varied from 0 to 2 at a frequency of 500 Hz, which of the following best describes the effect, if any, on the interference pattern? (E) It is not destroyed but simply shifts positions at a rate too rapid to be detected by the eye. Questions 4 and 5 : A particle with rest mass m and momentum mc/ 2 collides with a particle of the same rest mass that is initially at rest. After the collision, the original two particles have disappeared. Two other particles, each with rest mass m...
