Rigid Rotor question requiring quantum mechanics.
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 Y3,-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
Y3,-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 = 0.5ω2 and delta E = <E^2>-<E>^2 however i cannot apply it here.
