1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
A rigid rotor with moment of Inertia I is known to be in a state with eigenfunction Y_{3},_{2}(θ,∅). A. What is the rotational energy of the rotor in terms of I and h bar. B. What is the uncertainty in the measurement of the energy of the rotor? 2. Relevant equations Y_{3},_{2}(θ,∅) = (105/32∏)^(1/2)sin^2(θ)cos(θ)e^i2∅. 3. The attempt at a solution All i have figured out from the notes is that for a rigid rotor E = 0.5ω^{2} and delta E = <E^2><E>^2 however i cannot apply it here.
