5th Ed: Ch. 6 Prob's 23, 28, 32, 43, 48 4th Ed: Ch. 6 Prob's 22, (Problem A, see below), 31, 41, 46 Problem A: Compute the expectation value of the x component of the momentum of a particle of mass m in the n=3 level of a onedimensional infinite square well of width L. Reconcile your answer with the fact that the KE of the particle in this level is 9p^{2}hbar^{2}/2ML^{2}. Extra Credit: A finite square well has depth
13.6eV and width 10^{10}m. Find the number of bound states it will
have and the energy of the lowest state in eV. Use of MMA is ok, but
print out any MMA results you use.

Ch. 7 Prob's 1, 2 (Both editions) Extra Credit: The Schrödinger Eqn is nonrelativistic. If one considers corrections for the effects of relativity for the electron in a onedimensional infinite square well, are the energy levels slightly higher, slightly lower, or unchanged from the nonrelativistic result? Come up with a convincing argument to support your answer.
