Q: Is there a higher dimension analogue of Noether's theorem?

zhongyuan chenSo I have recently read the proof of Noether's theorem from the book variation calculus by Gelfand. Basically, what I have already seen is that for any single integral functional, if we have a transformation that keeps the functional invariant, we can derive a quantity that doesn't change along ...

Q: Why does electron(-) keep rotating round the nucleus (+) even they are attracted?

alfatih AbdullahI'm a secondary school pupil, my physics textbook discussed atomic physics without deep details because we are young boys, to explain electron motion we first learn about rotational motion. The main problem is that why the electron dose not fall on the nucleus, my textbook said that it doesn't b...

Q: Why don't we get the same answer when using kinetic energy compared to conservation of momentum?

ToTheSpace 2Suppose there are two objects. The first object is stationary and has the next parameters: v1=0 m/s, m1= 4kg. The second object is heading towards the first one with speed v2= 8m/s and mass m2= 60 kg. Due to collision, objects merge into one and continue to move with the velocity v3. Suppose all ...

Q: A formula for delta function in quantum mechanics

user10709I met a formula for delta function in a QM book ( not in English). The formula is used in the scattering theory. Its form is $$\lim_{\alpha\rightarrow \infty}\exp[i\alpha x]=2i\delta(x), ~~(x\geq 0).$$ Before, I never saw this form. Is this formula correct? Where can I find relevant references?

Q: Experimental tests of Schrodinger evolution, position distribution, in square well and other simple systems?

user1247Have the energy eigenfunctions in position space ever been experimentally tested for the simplest system undergraduates encounter when learning quantum mechanics, the square well? If not, what is the best example of the experimental verification of position space energy eigenstates or Schrodinger...

Q: Are relativity and doppler effect related?

jjmontesMy sister just watched this video about space contraction (Spanish), and asked me if this is related to doppler effect. In the clip they also introduce the idea that a bat would be affected by similar effects when measuring an object's length, due to the time it takes for sound to propagate. I...
