I would be eternally grateful if I could get some help. The question is: Write down the Haniltonian operator for the 2D harmonic oscillator with the potential V(x,y)=1/2(x^2+y^2).(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

By using teh separation of variables and theform of the eigenvalue for the 1D harmoinc oscillator, find the energy eigenvalues for the 2D oscillator.
