The wave function solution psi is a function of time and position. Hence the integral of its square over all x will, in general, give a function of time. To normalize this, we must multiply with the inverse of the function. Therefore it seems that the normalization constant does not remain constant over all time. Please tell if my understanding is correct or whether I have made a mistake somewhere.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
