PHYSICS 320: MODERN PHYSICS

Tim Gfroerer, Davidson College

 

Topics on Review #2

 

 
  • Stern-Gerlach, the EPR experiment, Bell's solution, and quantum measurements

  • Quantum mechanical wavefunctions, probability, and normalization

  • The Schrodinger equation: recipe, expectation, and uncertainty

  • Infinite and finite square wells, the QM harmonic oscillator

  • The 3D spherical Schroedinger equation: separation of variables, H atom quantum numbers, and spherical probability densities

  • Angular momentum, magnetic moment, and B-fields

 

Some equations and numbers you should know:

  • QM Probability and Normalization
  • The 1D, time-independent Schrodinger Equation
  • Expectation, Uncertainty, and the Momentum Operator
  • The harmonic oscillator potential and natural frequency
  • Speed of Light
  • Electron Charge
  • Planck's Constant

Some equations and numbers I'll provide if necessary:

  • The time-dependent Schrodinger Equation
  • Infinite square well eigenenergies
  • The 3D spherical Schrodinger Equation
  • Hydrogen atom wavefunctions
  • Magnetic field and potential energy
  • Bohr magneton
  • Electron Mass
  • Boltzmann Constant
