To prove:

Commutator of the Hamiltonian with Position:
i have been trying to solve, but i am getting a factor of 2 in the denominator carried from p2/2m

Commutator of the Hamiltonian with Momentum:
i am not able to proceed at all...

Kindly help.. :(

Post your work and take into consideration the hint to compute the commutators when applied on a wavefunction from their common dense everywhere domain.
