    The range of (psi) squared is ?

    the range of (psi) squared is ?? (psi) of the schrodinger's wave equation is displacement? ( or, what are it's SI units??) (psi) squared gives the "probability" of finding a particle in space..does this mean that, 0<= ((psi) sqaured) <=1 ??

    Mass or Charge?

    Mass and charge are qualities of any substance found in nature. That's because they can produce fields of forces. Fields have the capability to do work so we say that energy is stored in fields.but why mass alone is a condensed form of energy as E=MC^2 suggests..why not E=qC^2 ? I mean charge...

    Magnetic field due to a current carrying conductor is___?

    In an infinitely long current carrying wire (assuming zero resistance) say there is a definite current. "Having current in it" means there is a flow of charge in it, which means if positive charge moves in one direction then negative charge moves in opposite direction. As we know that a charge...
