This is a fairly simple question, but the first such question I have done. Inorder to check my work I was hoping somone could show me how to normalize the following.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]\Psi(x,t) = Ae^{-a[(mx^{2}/\hbar)+it][/tex]

where m is the particles mass

And also that the expectation values of x and x^{2}would be.

Don't wory, this is not for a class, I am studying this on my own
