what does health physics entail? I am interested in either nuclear engineering or Health physics but would like to get more detail on what it is that they actually do? Anybody know and wanna help out?

Homework Statement
A particle of mass m is located in a box of length L and found to be in its ground state
A) what is the probability of finding the particle between x=0 and x=L/4
B) What is the expectation value for the position of the particle?
C)What is the expectation value <x^2>...
ok, i see, but the example in the book has the initial wavefunction given as Y(x,0)=Cexp(-|x|/x0) where C and x0 are constants, is it possible to get this function into a similar format??
Homework Statement
Consider a particle in a superposition of states given at time t=0 by Y(x,0)=C(y1(x)+y2(x)), where y1(x) and y2(x) are the stationary states with energies E1 and E2 respectively. if y1(x) and y2(x) are orthonormalized, what value of C is required to normalize Y(x,0)...
ok thanks, i think I have bridged the gap in my knowledge, one more quick question though...in Acos(kx)+iAsin(kx) the i doesn't play a role does it? I mean its just like a negative sign??
ok, that makes some sense, so since the position operator [x] is just x, then all of the functions are eigenfunctions...similarly, the potential energy operator [U] is just the potential energy function. In this case the function is zero so since its [U]=0 all the functions are eigen functions...
Homework Statement
given the following functions:
y(x)= Acos(kx)
y(x)=A sin(kx)-Acos(kx)
y(x)=Acos(kx)+iAsin(kx)
y(x)=A d(x-x0)
Which are eigenfunctions of the position, momentum, potential energy,kinetic energy, hamiltonian, and total energy operators
Homework Equations
y(x) is...
