Know where to find any Quantum Mechanics practice problems?

  1. Oct 1, 2007 #1
    I have a Quantum Mechanics test on Wednesday and I was wondering if someone could recommend somewhere for me to find some practice problems and answers. I've googled and found some practice tests, but they don't have any answers for me to make sure I'm doing them right. The book I have is Quantum Chemistry by Donald McQuarrie, which I think is a widely used text book for Quantum Mechanics classes. The material I was hoping to get more practice with is:

    Schroedinger Equation and Particle in a Box
    Postulates and Principles of Quantum Mechanics
    Harmonic Oscillator and Vibrational Spectroscopy
    Rigid Rotor and Rotational Spectroscopy

    My Professor gives really tough tests so any help finding old homework or practice tests would be greatly appreciated!

    Also, if anybody else is looking too, here are some resources I've dug up:

    http://lanl.arxiv.org/abs/physics/0004072 Found this on physicsforums, tons of notes on QM and a few examples for each topic
    http://mini-me.chem.uh.edu/pchem07/page0/page17/page17.html -Professor put 17 of his old QM tests online, but no answers
    http://www.users.csbsju.edu/~frioux/workinprogress.html -A Professor's site with tons of tutorials on QM, lot's of material to help solve systems using Mathcad
    http://www.falstad.com/qm1d/ - This guy made a really impressive java applet that is good for visualizing QM systems with animated graphs. There are also a bunch of applets for other Physics / Chemistry / Math visualization. These are cool to play with even if you aren't studying.

    I've got some other resources too if anybody is looking

    maybe this is too late, but your library migh have one of these or similar:




    There are hundereds of these, my library have a couple, have you tried yours?

    And here you might find, from the course I had a couple of years ago, maybe there is some problems that is suitible for you:
