Energy of SHO

  1. Jun 14, 2012 #1
    is it possible to derive exact values of energies of rigid rotator and SHO without using Schrodinger equation ?Is it possible to derive energy values by using classical mechanics ?

    For macroscopic objects you don't use Schrodinger equation. You use classical mechanics.
