Probability of finding a particle between 0 to 0.5L in a one-dimensional box of length L in the second excited state is :


The correct answer is: 1/2


For the case of even parity solution of a symmetric infinite potential well, what is true for expectation value of x, p, x2 and p2 ?


Correct Answer :- d

Explanation : φ = A cos nπx/L

x = φxφ dx

= A2 ∫(0 to L) xcos2 nπx/L dx

= A2 ∫(0 to L) x/2(cosnπx/L - 1) dx

= (A2)/2 ∫(0 to L) xcos2 nπx/L dx

= 0

p = d/dt (x)

= 0


If a particle of mass m emits a photon after making a transition from a state n2 to a lower state n1, in an infinite well of width 2a, then find the wavelength corresponding to that photon.



Consider the case of an infinite square well potential symmetric about the y axis i.e.

Which of the following is a true?


The correct answer is: Infinite square well which is not symmetric about the y axis, has only odd parity states, whereas the asymmetric potential well has both even & odd parity states


The solution to the Schrodinger equation for a particle bound in a one-dimensional, infinitely deep potential well, indexed by a quantum number n, indicates that in the middle of the well, the probability density vanishes for.


For particle in a box

For ψ1(x), probability density does not vanish in the middle


probability density vanishes in the middle

Similarly, it does not vanish for  vanishes for  in the middle of the well.

The correct answer is: states of even n(n = 2, 4...)


For a particle of mass m, being acted upon by a force with potential energy function   a one-dimensional simple harmonic oscillator. If there is a wall at x = 0 so that  V = ∞ for x < 0, then the energy levels are equal to :


The probability distributions for the quantum states of the oscillator without the barrier.

Infinite barrier at the origin means a node at origin, or the wave function goes to zero at x = 0.

By symmetry, the ground state will disappear, as well all the even states.  Odd values remain

V(x) = 0 for x < a
= V0 for a < x b
= 0 for x > b

Which of the following wave functions is possible for a particle incident from the left with energy E < V0
