Ex- plain. 2. A spherically symmetric potential “trap” has the radial dependence shown below. 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.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
