In all problems the Mathematica output is part of your grade and must be turned in with your paper-and-pencil calculations.  If I don't say to use Mathematica you can if you want to help with the calculation. However beware you will not have Mathematica on the Final Exam. Best to do it by hand and check it with Mathematica.
 

1. GRIFFITHS PROBLEM 4.01, PAGE 133. 

2. GRIFFITHS PROBLEM 4.02, PAGE 135. Hint: See notes.

3. GRIFFITHS PROBLEM 4.05, PAGE 140.

4. GRIFFITHS PROBLEM 4.06 PAGE 140.

5. GRIFFITHS PROBLEM 4.09, PAGE 145. Hint: For l=0 (the ground state) this is similar to the Finite Square Well of CH02.6 with one new BC (that the solution does not blow up at the origin).

6. GRIFFITHS PROBLEM 4.11, PAGE 154. Check the integrals using Mathematica. Plot in Mathematica R20(r) and R21(r) on the same graph and compare your result to FIG04.4 in the book on page 155.



 


"It is a matter for considerable regret that Fermat, who cultivated the theory of numbers with so much success,
did not leave us with the proofs of the theorems he discovered."

--- Adrien-Marie Legendre (1752 – 1833)
