1. ### Hamiltonian for a 1D-spin chain

Homework Statement [/B] A 1D spin chain corresponds to the following figure: Suppose there are ##L## particles on the spin chain and that the ##i##th particle has spin corresponding to ##S=\frac{1}{2}(\sigma_i^x,\sigma_i^y,\sigma_i^z)##, where the ##\sigma##'s correspond to the Pauli spin...
2. ### How do I calculate the potential created by a dipole

Homework Statement I'm given that there is a positive charge of 1 nC at x=0.25 m and a negative charge of -1 nC at x=-0.25 m. I've calculated the potential created at different points along the x-axis by the positive charge and the negative charge using the formula, $$V=\frac{kq}{|r|},$$ where...
3. ### Distance the hoop travels up the incline

Homework Statement A ring (hollow cylinder) of mass 2.61kg, inner radius 6.35cm, and outer radius 7.35cm rolls (without slipping) up an inclined plane that makes an angle of θ=36.0°, as shown in the figure below. At the moment the ring is at position x = 2.19m up the plane, its speed is...
4. ### Find the apparent weight

Homework Statement A car traveling on a straight road at 9.15m/s goes over a hump in the road. The hump may be regarded as an arc of a circle of radius 10.4m. What is the apparent weight of a 665N woman in the car as she rides over the hump? Homework Equations ##F=ma##; ##a=v^2/r## The...
5. ### Find monic generators of the ideals

Homework Statement Let ##T## be the linear operator on ##F^4## represented in the standard basis by $$\begin{bmatrix}c & 0 & 0 & 0 \\ 1 & c & 0 & 0 \\ 0 & 1 & c &0 \\ 0 & 0 & 1 & c \end{bmatrix}.$$ Let ##W## be the null space of ##T-cI##. a) Prove that ##W## is the subspace spanned by...
6. ### Find the velocity when the ball rolls without slipping

Homework Statement A thin spherical shell is sliding with velocity ##v_0## on a table initial until friction eventually causes it to roll without slipping. Find its translational velocity when the it rolls without slipping as a fraction of ##v_0##. Homework Equations $$I=\frac{2}{3}MR^2$$...

25. ### Center of mass energy problem

Homework Statement While not explicitly a homework question, I am having some trouble with deriving expressions for the center of mass energy in a fixed target experiment versus a collider experiment. The question is effectively, "Derive an expression for the center of mass energy in a fixed...
26. ### Drawing the quark flow diagram for proton-pion interaction

Homework Statement I am given the following interaction, $$\pi^-+p\rightarrow \pi^++\pi^-+n,$$ and asked to draw the Feynman (quark flow diagram). Homework Equations None; just baryon number conservation, quark flavor conservation, etc. The Attempt at a Solution First, as baryon number and...
27. ### How to solve for D and sketch the wavefunctions

Homework Statement See attached image. The potential in question is, ##-V_0## for ##0<r<a,## and ##0## for ##r\geq a.## Homework Equations $$\sinh(x)=\frac{e^x+e^{-x}}{2}$$ $$\cosh(x)=\frac{e^x-e^{-x}}{2}$$ The Attempt at a Solution I know that the wavefunction for ##r<a## is given by...
28. ### Eigenvectors of Ly and associated energies

Homework Statement Consider a particle with angular momentum l=1. Write down the matrix representation for the operators L_x,\,L_y,\,L_z,for this particle. Let the Hamiltonian of this particle be H = aL\cdot L-gL_z,\,g>0.Find its energy values and eigenstates. At time t=0,we make a measurement...
