Problem set 1

1. The Lagrangian of a free particle moving in two dimension in the un-primed XY plane

is given by, Write down the Lagrangian for the particle as

observed from a primed coordinate system rotating w.r.t. the unprimed frame with

uniform angular velocity . Write the equation of motion for the particle as seen

from the rotating frame. Interpret the equation of motion.

transformation which does not leave the Lagrangian invariant and the new

Lagrangian under the transformation differs from the original one by a total time

derivative of an arbitrary function F of coordinate and time.

momentum Ji (i=x,y,z) with each other. The Hamiltonian of a system is given by

H=J2/2I where J is the total angular momentum and I is the moment of inertia. Find

out the constants of motion.

4. Write down the Lagrangian for a non-relativistic charged particle moving in a plane

in presence of magnetic field B along z direction in absence of electric field.

a) Exploit gauge freedom to choose appropriate vector potential.

b) Find the conserved quantity for each choice of the vector potential and prove

that velocity in x direction is proportional to the position in the y direction and

vice versa.

c) Is the motion periodic? If so, find the angular frequency.

d) Now apply electric field in the x direction. Write down the corresponding

Lagrangian.

e) Find out the equation of motion for zero acceleration. Can you recognize the

phenomenon?

field pointing in the z direction is given by

a) Show that the system is invariant under space translation in any direction. Find the

associated constant of motion.

b) Show that the system is invariant under rotation about z axis. Find the associated

constant of motion

c) How many constants of motion are there which are in involution with each other?

d) Find the equation for the particle trajectory using the constants of motion.

6. Consider the motion of a particle of mass m in an isotropic harmonic oscillator

potential. The Hamiltonian is given by

Introduce three quantities: ,

and where

a) Show that Jis are the constants of motion

b) Show that Jis have the similar Poisson bracket relations as the three components

of angular momentum.

Now seek a new pair of canonical variables (, I) such that each phase curve is

labelled by the constant I whereas each point on the phase curve is a labelled by .

In other words, in the (, I) representation, the contours are lines of constant I so

that the Hamiltonian is independent of . Show that

8. A particle bounces back and forth inside a cube of side L. The potential energy inside

the cube is zero. Assume that at each collision the momentum instantaneously

changes sign. The system is separable i.e. each of three cartesian dimensions can be

treated independently.

a) Draw the orbits in phase space for x and px.

b) Calculate the action variable Jx. Write down Jy and Jz by analogy.

c) Write the total energy E as a function of Jx, Jy and Jz.

d) Calculate the frequencies of the motion.

e) The pressure P exerted by the particle on one wall of the box is proportional to

the change in momentum at each collision divided by the period between

collisions divided by the area of the wall. Show that

f) Use the adiabatic invariance theorem to find the relationship between P and V =

L3 if the size of the box is slowly varied. Compare your answer to the adiabatic

mono-atomic ideal gas law PV5/3 = const.

Prove that the transformation is canonical by calculating the Jacobian and finding the

canonical Poisson Bracket relations. The Hamiltonian of a simple harmonic oscillator

is invariant under the canonical transformation. Find and

identify the associated constant of the motion.

10. Two equivalent inertial frames K and K' are such that K' moves in the positive x

direction with speed v as seen from K. The spatial coordinate axes in K' are parallel to

those in K and the two origins are coincident at times t = t' = 0.

different inertial frames (first postulate of relativity) require that the most general

transformation between the space-time coordinates (x, y, z, t) and (x', y', z', t') is the

linear transformation,

where f, g, and h are functions of v2, the structures of the x' and x equations are

determined by the definition of the inertial frames in relative motion, and the signs of the

inverse equation are a reflection of a reversal of roles of the two frames.

b) Show that consistency of the initial transformation and its inverse requires

f =g and f 2v 2 f h=1

(c) If a physical entity has speed u' parallel to the x' axis in K', show that its speed u parallel

to the x axis in K is

Using Einsteins postulate of universal limiting speed C, show that h = f/C2 is required and

that the Lorentz transformation of the coordinates results. The universal limiting speed C is

to be determined from experiment.
