Textbook Problem

A physicist is watching a 15-kg orangutan at a zoo swing lazily in a tire at the end of a rope. He (the physicist) notices that each oscillation takes 3.00 s and hypothesizes that the energy is quantized. (a) What is the difference in energy in joules between allowed oscillator states? (b) What is the value of n for a state where the energy is 5.00 J? (c) Can the quantization be observed?

To determine

(a)

The difference in energy in between allowed oscillator states

Explanation

Given:

Time for each oscillation =T=3 sec

Frequency of oscillation =f

Difference in energy =E=?

Plank's constant =h=6.63×1034

Formula Used:

Frequency is given as

  f=1T

Difference in Energy is given as

  E=hf

Calculation:

Frequency of oscillation is given as

  f=1T

Inserting the values

  

To determine

(b)

The value of "n" for a state

(c)

To determine

If the quantization can be observed.
