### Probability of Finding Particles

If a hydrogen atom is in the ground state, what is the probaility of finding the electron in a volume of 1.0 pm^3 at a distance of 52.9 pm from the nucleus, in a fixed but arbitrary direction? 1 pm = 10^-12 m

I am given three unnormalized wavefunctions for the system: psi(x) = 100e^x for x<-4 psi(x) = 0.73 cos[(pi)x/40] for-4<x<4 psi(x) = 100e^-x for x>4 I need to determine the probability of the wavefunction vs. x for this system from x=-10 to x=10 so that I can plot it. I have to comment on the probability of fin

What is the de Broglie wavelength of a particle moving at a speed of 1.00 x 10^6 m/s if it is (a) an electron (b) a proton? (me= 9.11

Derive the infinite square well energy quantization law, directly from the DeBroglie relation p=h/l, by fitting an integral number of half DeBroglie wavelengths l/2 into the width a of the well

Suppose that a pair of electrons, A and B, were described by the following wave function: (see attached for equations). (I have rewritten this equation as I believe some of you are having problems reading the text.) What property specific to entanglement must the wavefunction describing an entangled state of two particles

A 3kg particle has a velocity of (3i-4j) m/s. Find the magnitude of its momentum? ============================================= Answers: a) 9kg m/s b) -12 kg m/s c) 15 kg m/s d) 3 kg m/s ################################################## A sinusoidal wave is described by y=(0.30m)sin(0.20x-40t). Determine the wave speed.

Wavefunctions of a finite square well. See attachments for details.

The schroedinger equation for harmonic oscillator can be written: E*psi = [(h^2)/2m][((d^2)*psi)/(dx^2)] + (1/2)kx^(2*psi) Write and formally differentiate each term to get the second derivative with respect to X. Put it all into the equation as shown and you will see that there will be an infinite number of possible solu
