PHYS 522 PROBLEM SET 3

1. A particle of mass m, energy E>0 's scattered from the attractive spherical finite well potential V(r) = -Vo ra V(r) = 0 r>a a. Find the differential cross section for low energies, (k<<1/a, h2k2<<2mVo) b. Find the differential cross section for high energies, (k>>1/a, h2k2>>2mVo) c. In both cases is the total cross section finite. Calculate it if possible.
