Consider an electron bound in a three dimensional simple
harmonic oscillator potential in the n=1 state. Recall that the
e- has spin 1/2 and that the n=1 level of the oscillator
has l =1. Thus, there are six states {|n=1, l=1, ml,
ms} with ml= +1, 0, -1 and ms =
+/- 1/2.
- Using these states as a basis find the six states with
definite j and mj where J = L +s
- What are the energy levels...

Consider a system of three non-interacting spins in
equilibrium with a magnetic field H (this system is not really
macroscopic, but is illustrative). Each spin can have only two
possible orientations: parallel to H, with magnetic moment u and
energy (-u H), or antiparallel with magnetic moment -u and energy
(uH).

Eight electrons are confined to a two-dimensional infinite
potential well with widths L_X = L y =L. Assume that the electrons
do not electrically interact with one another. Considering electron
spin and degeneracies of some energy levels, what is the total
energy of the eight-electron system in its ground state, as a
multiple of h^2/(8mL^2 )?

A particle is confined to the one-dimensional infinite potential
well of width L. If the particle is in the
n=2 state, what is its probability of detection between a) x=0, and
x=L/4; b) x=L/4, and x=3L/4; c) x=3L/4,
and x=L? Hint: You can double check your answer if you calculate
the total probability of the particle being
trapped in the well.
Please answer as soon as possible.
