MCQ (Single Correct Answer)
If uncertainty in position and momentum are equal, then uncertainty in velocity is
A
$${1 \over m}\sqrt {{h \over \pi }} $$
B
$$\sqrt {{h \over \pi }} $$
C
$${1 \over {2m}}\sqrt {{h \over \pi }} $$
D
$$\sqrt {{h \over {2\pi }}} $$

Explanation

According to Heisenberg uncertainty principle

$$\Delta p.\Delta x \ge {h \over {4\pi }}$$ or m$$\Delta v.\Delta x \ge {h \over {4\pi }}$$

$$ \Rightarrow $$ (m$$\Delta v$$)2 $$\ge {h \over {4\pi }}$$ ($$ \because $$ $$\Delta x$$ = $$\Delta p$$)

$$ \Rightarrow $$ $$\Delta v \ge$$ $${1 \over {2m}}\sqrt {{h \over \pi }} $$

MCQ (Single Correct Answer)
The measurement of the electron position is associated with an uncertainty in momentum, which is equal to 1 $$ \times $$ 10$$-$$18 g cm s$$-$$1. The uncertainty in electron velocity is (mass of an electron is 9 $$ \times $$ 10$$-$$28 g)
A
1 $$ \times $$ 105 cm s$$-$$1
B
1 $$ \times $$ 1011 cm s$$-$$1
C
1 $$ \times $$ 109 cm s$$-$$1
D
1 $$ \times $$ 106 cm s$$-$$1

Explanation

$$\Delta v$$ = $${{1 \times {{10}^{ - 18}}} \over {9 \times {{10}^{ - 28}}}} = 1.1 \times {10^9}cm\,{s^{ - 1}}$$

MCQ (Single Correct Answer)
Consider the following sets of quantum numbers :

n l m s
(i) 3 0 0 +1/2
(ii) 2 2 1 +1/2
(iii) 4 3 -2 -1/2
(iv) 1 0 -1 -1/2
(v) 3 2 3 +1/2


Which of the following sets of quantum number is not possible ?
A
(i), (ii), (iii) and (iv)
B
(ii), (iv) and (v)
C
(i) and (iii)
D
(ii), (iii) and (iv)

Explanation

(i) represents an electron in 3s orbital

(ii) is not possible as value of m varies from 0, 1, .... ($$n$$ -1)

(iii) represents an electron in 4f orbital

(iv) is not possible as value of m varies from -$$l$$ ... +$$l$$

(v) is not possible as value of m varies from -$$l$$ ... +$$l$$, it can never be grater than $$l$$

MCQ (Single Correct Answer)
Given : The mass of electron is 9.11 $$ \times $$ 10$$-$$31 kg, Planck constant is 6.626 $$ \times $$ 10$$-$$34 J s, the uncertainty involved in the measurement of velocity within a distance of 0.1 $$\mathop A\limits^ \circ $$ is
A
5.79 $$ \times $$ 105 m s$$-$$1
B
5.79 $$ \times $$ 106 m s$$-$$1
C
5.79 $$ \times $$ 107 m s$$-$$1
D
5.79 $$ \times $$ 108 m s$$-$$1

Explanation

$$\Delta x.m\Delta v = h/4\pi $$

0.1 $$ \times $$ 10-10 $$ \times $$ 9.11 $$ \times $$ 10-31 $$ \times $$ $$\Delta v$$ = $${{6.626 \times {{10}^{ - 34}}} \over {4 \times 3.143}}$$

$$ \therefore $$ $$\Delta v$$ = $${{6.626 \times {{10}^{ - 34}}} \over {4 \times 3.143 \times 0.1 \times {{10}^{ - 10}} \times 9.11 \times {{10}^{ - 31}}}}$$

= 5.79 $$ \times $$ 106 m s-1
