ChemistryPhysical ChemistryMultiple operators can act on a function. If P ⌢ x acts on the coordinate x to yield − x , P ⌢ x acts on the coordinate y to yield − y , and P ⌢ x acts on the coordinate z to yield − z , evaluate the following expressions written in terms of 3 -D Cartesian coordinates: (a) P ⌢ x ( 4 , 5 , 6 ) (b) P ⌢ y P ⌢ z ( 0 , − 4 , − 1 ) (c) P ⌢ x P ⌢ x ( 5 , 0 , 0 ) (d) P ⌢ y P ⌢ x ( π , π / 2 , 0 ) (e) Does P ⌢ x P ⌢ y equal P ⌢ y P ⌢ x for any set coordinates?
