Units are chosen so that R; = 1 and R2 = 3R1 = 3. The height of the trap is
V0 = 5E0, with E0 = nz/(2mR3). 0 R1 R2 1' The Z = 0 phase shift for this potential (divided by 1r) is shown in the following ﬁgure.
(Note that k = le since R1 = 1.) There are resonances (where 60 increases through
(12. + 1/2)1r for integer n) at [91 = 1.98715 and k2 = 3.70854. (The former is hard to
see from the ﬁgure, but 60 / 7r does dip slightly below —1.5.) It will be useful for the following questions to note that, when R2 —> 00 (with V0 and
R1 ﬁxed), there is a single bound state with k = 2.02 and E/Eo = k2 = 4.07. 3.0
(a) [3 pts] First we consider the low-energy region, kR2 << 1. Explain qualitatively and brieﬂy why, in this region, S-wave scattering dominates. Use the plot of 60
to determine an approximate value for the total cross section as kR2 —> 0. (You
should not attempt an exact calculation using the potential.) How could your
result for a have been approximately anticipated from the form of the potential?
