I am having a problem with a couple of problems involving commutating operators.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

1. How do i find the commutation operators of x and ∂/∂x

2. If the angular momenta about 3 rotational axes in a central potential commute then how many quantum numbers we would get? And why will it be a problem?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

1. For x i think it would be any F(x) is that so?

and for ∂/∂x is it d/dx ?

2. I think we would get 4 quantum numbers , right?
