I am having some trouble starting this one.

http://img301.imageshack.us/img301/8080/79432817ke4.jpg [Broken]

Im not sure if I am supposed to replace the psi(v) with some ground state harmonic oscialltor function or not. If so, do I then just take the integrals and then divide 1 to 2 by 0 to 1 to get the ratio of the dipole moment?

Any help is appreciated

replace psi_nu with psi_0 and psi_vu' with psi_1 then do the integral. you get some number, call it A.

next replace psi_nu with psi_1 and psi_vu' with psi_2 then do the integral. you get some number, call it B.

next divide A by B. That is your answer.

I get .707 as the answer. If someone could check for me that would be great.
