Harmonic potential among two particles

  1. Hello, guys. I need a little help here.

    Two particles of mass m interact by an harmonic unidimensional potential:
    V=(k/2)(x1-x2)2, k>0

    If the total linear momentum is null, which are the possible energies when:
    a)the 2 particles are distinguishable
    b)identical particles of spin 0
    c)identical particles of spin 1/2, in a singlet state
    d)identical particles of spin 1/2, in a triplet state

    NB: "There's no need of doing calculations"

    Thanks!
