The ground state energy of an electron confined to a box 1Å wide is.
a = 1 * 10-10m m = 9.1 * 10-31kg
Energy of electron in ground state
E1 = h2/8ma2
⇒ [(6.625 * 10-34)2]/(8 * 9.1 * 10-31 * 1 * 10-10)
E1 = 6.016 * 10-18 J
Which of the following values of A will properly normalize the wave function of a rigid dumbbell rotating about its centre having φ dependence as ψ(φ) = Aeimφ where m is a quantum number.
The correct answer is:
A particle of mass m has the wave function ψ(x, t) = eiωt (α cos kx + β sin kx) where α, β are complex constants and ω and k are real constants. The probability current density is equal to :
Probability current density
subtract (2) and (1)
If de-Broglie wavelength of an electron is 7.3Å. Then the velocity of electron is. Given, me = 9.1 × 10–31 kg and h = 6.6 × 10–34 Js.
Λ = h/mv
v = h/mΛ
v = (6.6*10-34)/(9.1 × 10–31 * 7.3 * 10-10)
= 9.93 × 104 m/s
The correct answer is: 9.93 × 104 m/s
