A quantum harmonic oscillator makes a transition from the state to the state and emits a photon that has a wavelength of 0.450 μm. What is the oscillator’s frequency?
Atoms in a crystal lattice vibrate in simple harmonic motion. What is the force constant of the lattice if a lattice atom makes a transition from the ground state to first excited state when it absorbs a 525-μm photon? Use a value of kg for the mass a lattice atom.
A particle with mass 0.0300 kg oscillates back-and-forth on a spring with frequency 4.00 Hz. At the spring’s equilibrium position, the particle has a speed of 0.600 m/s. If the particle is in a state of definite energy, find its energy quantum number.
