?_{1}? + ?_{2}? where ?_{1} and
?_{2}

are constants. Calculate (a) ?_{z} ? , (b) ?^{2}
? , and (c) (?_{x}^{2} + ?_{y}^{2}

An electron (a spin-1/2 particle) sits in a uniform magnetic
field pointed in the x-direction:
B = B0xˆ.
a) What is the quantum Hamiltonian for this electron? Express your
answer in terms of B0,
other constants, and the spin operators Sx, Sy and Sz, and then
also write it as a matrix (in z basis).
b) What are the energy eigenvalues, and what are the associated
normalized eigenvectors
(in terms of our usual basis)? You may express the eigenvectors
either...

Given the function f(x, y, z) = (x2 + y2 +
z2 )−1/2
a) what is the gradient at the point (12,0,16)?
b) what is the directional derivative of f in the direction of
the vector u = (1,1,1) at the point (12,0,16)?

Given a free electron. The Z-component of the electron's spin
angular momentum is +ℏ/2 at some initial time t=0. The electron's
spin is then measured at three different times, t=1 s, t=2 s, t=3 s
respectively. The x-component of the spin is measured at t=1, and
the y-component is measured at t=2. FInally, the z-component is
measured at t=3.
What is the probability to measure the value −ℏ/2 at time t=1
seconds? What is the...
