Quantum Mechanics

Introductory Quantum Mechanics

What is the defining condition for an Hermitian Operator? ⟨ Ť f ⎮ g ⟩ = ⟨ f ⎮Ť g ⟩ , where Ť is the Hermitian operator
A basis is a .. ..set of linearly independent vectors that span the space. And used with the "ket" "bra" notation in QM
A bound state has energy, E < .. ..( V(-∞) and V(∞) ) Like a sphere rolling back and forth in a half loop, with too little energy to escape.
Degenerate states is when two particles.. ..occupy the same energy state. For free particle in 1D - one can go left, one right - but with the same energy
Can degenerate solutions be normalizable? No
Is it possible to create a state such that every measurement is an observable? Yes Determinate states
A scattering state is when the energy, E is greater than... ..the potentials at + or - ∞. E >( V(-∞) or V(∞) ) A car that comes in from infinity, crosses a hill (potential barrier) and continues to infinity.
Tunnelling is when a particle can pass through a potential barrier, without.. .."having enough energy".
Linearly independent eigenfunctions that share the same eigenvalue are called.. ...degenerate.

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
