Unformatted text preview: e square is 〈 〉 , so that the standard deviation is √〈 〉 〈 〉 . An alternative way to compute the standard deviation is to compute the 〈 〉 〉. √〈 square deviations, square them, average them, and take the square root: (c) The median is 1. (d) The most likely value is 4. 8. Expectation value. Calculate the values of 〈 〉, 〈 〉, 〈 〉 and 〈 〉 for a harmonic oscillator in its √〈 〉 〈 〉 and ground state. With the results, calculate the standard deviations √〈 〉 〈 〉 . Examine the product in light of the uncertainty principle. The necessary integrals √ ∫ are √ ∫ ∫ , , . With () () and th...
