    By the way, I don't know how to show the pics directly, sorry about that.

    Multiply the left hand side by the energy denominator. Insert the hamiltonian operator. The commutator trick should then work.

    Thanks for your reply.^^ You mean like this?
    But it's not the original equation. I know that the commutator of position and Hamiltonian is equal to velocity multiplies by
    i and hbar(positive or negative sign added). But what I wanna know is how to transform the position operator "itself" into the "velocity form" in the first pic I posted. Or my procedure is simply incorrect?
