Homework Statement
Stationary Schrodinger equation for a particle moving in a potential well has two solutions
psi1(x)=e^-ax^2 with energy E1 and
psi2(x)xe^-ax^2 with energy E2
At t=o, the particle is in the state psi(x)=psi1(x)+psi2(x)
Calculate the probability distribution as a...
No, i copied the question down word for word, it says that the wave function is normalised! I'm sorry, I'm still very confused because it says in my lecture notes that i have to integrate to find the probability. Can you please tell me where you get |\psi|^2 dV = |\psi|^2 4\pi r^2 dr from?

I've had lectures on the theory of this topic, but I've not been given any examples and I'm struggling with how to apply the theory to this homework question:
A particle is described by the normalised wave function
Si(x,y,z)=Ae^-h(x^2+y^2+z^2) where A and h are real...
Sorry if I put this in the wrong thread! For a photon, wavelength is just lambda=h*c/energy. I think for an electron you use the relativistic equation lambda=h/mv*sqt(1-v^2/c^2). I've tried equating these, but i ended up with a horrible equation to solve because i don't have velocity of the...
