 P: 18 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Show that the equation below is an eigenfunction for the Quantum Harmonic Oscillator Hamiltonian and find its corresponding eigenvalue. 2. Relevant equations u1(q)=A*q*exp((-q$^{2}$)/2) 3. The attempt at a solution Ok, so I know that the Quantum Harmonic Oscillator Hamiltonian (H$_{QHO}$) is : (H$_{QHO}$)=$\frac{1}{2}$$\hbar$ω(((-d^2)/(dq^2))+q^2) and I know that: (H$_{QHO}$)u1(q)=Eu1(q) but how do I show that it's an eigenfunction? Simply subbing it into the eqn doesn't appear to help. Many thanks in advance.
