1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Find the speherical harmonics [tex] (Y_1)^1, (Y_1)^0, (Y_1)^-1[/tex] as functions of the polar angles [tex]\theta[/tex] and [tex]\psi[/tex] and as functions of the cartesian coordinates x, y , and z. 2. Relevant equations [tex] \(phi_l)^l= sin^l(\theta)*e^il\psi[/tex] [tex]L_\(phi_l)^l=(d/(d\theta))*\phi_l^l-l cot(\theta)\phi_l^l[/tex] 3. The attempt at a solution The first thing I should do is normalized[tex]\(phi_l)^l[/tex] to get a value for the A constant A^2*[tex] (sin^l(\theta)*exp(il\psi))^2[/tex]=1; should I plug in the values for m and l before I normalized the function or after I normalized the function once I get the value for [tex] \(phi_l)^l[/tex] I can plug in this value into [tex]L_\(phi_l)^l=(d/(d\theta))*(\phi_l)^l-(l cot(\theta))(\phi_l)^l[/tex] correct?Not sure why I am finding the value for the lower opperator. Please inform me if you have a reallly really hard time understanding the latex code.
