Unformatted text preview: Below: Note: 1) 2) IX. <x> = 0 For Large v, the "Particle" has a High Probability of Being Found Near the Classical Turning Points. Application to Diatomic Molecules (Assume Bond is a Hookean Spring with Constant k) Classical Potential V(R) = ½ k (R - Re)2 Classical Kinetic Energy T = ½ mA vA2 + ½ mB vB2 = = TCM + ½ We are not interested in the Center-of-Mass motion, only the relative (vibrational) off the two masses. Now Define the Angular Frequency According to: = Solve the Harmonic Oscillator Pro...
