### Power dissipated through resistor in RC circuit with charged Capacitor [closed]

so here's the problem: A simple RC circuit where the capacitor has been charged, and two resistors are in parallel configuration. How does one find the power (as function of time) through any of the ...

### Current through two inductors after a long time

I'm having trouble with visualizing the following problem, which is asking me for the final, steady current in both inductors $L_{1}$ and $L_{2}$. I was thinking that after a long time, essentially ...

### Difference between expectation values of $L^2$, $L_z$ and measuring $L^2$, $L_z$

I was given with this hydrogen radial wavefunction $$R_{21} =\left(\sqrt{\frac{1}{3}}Y^0_1 + \sqrt{\frac{2}{3}}Y^1_1\right)$$ and was asked to find a) What are the expectation values of the ...

### Spring Damper System : Recoil Reduction

I am designing a man-"portable" 30mm sniper rifle. Although it may be classified as a anti-materiel cannon. I have the mass of the round in total, and the mass of the projectile leaving the barrel, ...

### Expectation value of energy from the position state of hydrogen atom [closed]

I was given with the position state of hydrogen atom: $$R_{21} =\left(\sqrt{\frac{1}{3}}Y^0_1 + \sqrt{\frac{2}{3}}Y^1_1\right)$$ I am getting confused about getting the expectation value of ...

### Spherical Harmonic projection on axis

I am trying to solve for the Spherical harmonics $Y^m_{l=1}$ with a second axis at an angle $\alpha$ with respect to the z axis. Then this can be used to find the probability that a particle with ...

### Harmonic Oscillator potential, proof that Gaussians remain Gaussians?

I read in several papers that for a Harmonic Oscillator Hamiltonian in the time dependent Schrödinger equation a Gaussian wave packet remains Gaussian. Unfortunately I could not find any proof for ...
I have a problem that asks (verbatim) Carryout the construction of the eigenvectors of total angular momentum and its z component for $j_1$=3/2 and $j_2$=1/2 I am not completely sure where to ...
