Problem-QM-20008

If a spin $1/2$ particle has spin pointing along the direction (1,1,1), compute the average values of $S_x,S_y$, and $S_z$. Do you expect to get real values? Why?

Problem-QM-20007

Find the direction along which the spin projection is $1/2$ for a spin  half particle if the spin wave function the particle is given to be 

\[ \chi = \begin{pmatrix} 3\over 5 \\ -{4\over 5} \end{pmatrix}\]

Problem-QM-20004

 The spin wave function of a spin half particle at time $t=0$ is $$    \left(  \begin{array}{r} \displaystyle \frac{1}{\sqrt{2}} \\[4mm] \displaystyle {1\over \sqrt{2}}\end{array} \right)$$ and the Hamiltonian is represented by $ H =\gamma S_z$. Find

  1. the wave function at time $T$,
  2. the average value of $S_x$ after time $\pi/3\gamma$

A particle is in the spin state given by $$   \left( \begin{array}{r} \displaystyle{1\over\sqrt{5}}\\[4mm]\displaystyle {-2\over\sqrt{5}}  \end{array} \right) $$

  1. Compute the ratio of probabilities that the \(S_x\) has values \(\pm \frac{\hbar}{2}\)
  2. Compute the average value of the spin projection in the direction $(1,1,1)$.
