Two particles are subjected to the same potential [itex]V=\frac{m \omega x^2}{2}[/itex].(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Particle one has with position x1 and momentum p1.

Particle two has with position x2 and momentum p2.

The problem asks how to show that the Hamiltonian is [tex]H=H_1+H_2[/tex]

I am assuming that it is asking for a way to derive this relation but I'm not sure where to start from?
