Describe in Detail

Essay▾

We have to find expectation value of. (20 Marks)

Explanation

Expectation value of any operator is defined as

If the given wave function is normalized then as given in this case wave function is normalized so we need to only find

In spherical polar coordinates (the volume element is given by).

Question 69

Edit

Appeared in Year: 2003

Describe in Detail

Essay▾

Explain what do you understand by Heisenberg uncertainty principle. Using this principle determine the energy of the ground state of one dimensional simple Harmonic oscillator. (10 Marks)

Explanation

  • Since a particle is represented within the context of quantum mechanics by means of a wave function corresponding to the particle’s wave, and since wave function cannot be localized, then a microscopic particle is somewhat spread over space and unlike classical particles, cannot be localized in space. In addition, we have seen in the double- slit e
