In need to know if my answer is correct. I tried to place this question on the homework forum but it seems that this kind of questions are not answered there.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

In a one-dimensional problem, consider a system o two particles with wave function [itex]\psi(x_1,x_2)[/itex] the distance X_1 - X_2 between, the two particles is measured. What is the probability of finding a result included between -d and +d

My answer is :

[tex]\int_{-\infty}^\infty dx_1 \int_{-d}^{+d}de |\psi(x_1,x_1-e)|^2 [/tex]

I'd appreciate any comments!
