What’s the total energy of the system? Energy is MORE POSITIVE! i.e. like a repulsive interacIon… Exchange forces •  We’ve just seen that when two idenIcal parIcles arise, their symmetry under exchange induces a kind of repulsive (fermions) force. If the parIcles are bosons, the force is aaracIve. •  This type of non ­Newtonian force is called an exchange force. •  Let’s look at an example that illustrates this (from Griffiths): ! ( x1 , x2 ) = ! a ( x1 )! b ( x2 ) Composite two parIcle wave...
