OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!

[PHYS 041C] Comprehensive spring guide including any lecture notes, textbook notes and exam guides.find more resources at What was the most confusing or difficult topic in the reading? This may be something you think you now understand or something that you still don't understand after reading the book. ● How does distinction factor into whether the eigenvalues are orthogonal? ● This derivation confused me the most: As to why we can subtract inside the parentheses. ● The hidden variable theory, and the spooky distance was confusing to understand (the logic behind it). Section 5.1 How many eigenvalues are there for the parity operator? ● Two eigenvalues for the parity operator: + 1and − 1 after simplifying equation 5.6. Section 5.2 Are the eigenfunctions for a given Hermitian operator orthogonal for all Hermitian operators or only some Hermitian operators? ● Yes, the eigenfunctions in question are orthogonal for all Hermitian operators, since any Hermitian operation produces a distinct eigenvalue. Section 5.3 If the operators for two observables commute, is it physically possible to know both observables simultaneously with no uncertainty? find more resources at
