  • Lagrangians for CM PS#16
  • For 11.27, why isn’t the non-zero ω just sqrt[k/m]? (Hint: what do spherical cows in two-body central-force motion say? “μ”)

  • For for 12.66 (due next week), you may find it convenient to choose a coordinate system so that E points in the z direction and B is in the yz plane, such that E = (0, 0, E) and B = (0, B cos φ, B sin φ).
QM: 11.5-11.8 QM PS#15: 11.6, 11.10, 11.12, 11.16
