At classical harmonic oscillator, total energy is proportional to square of frequency, but at quantum harmonic oscillator, total energy is proportional to frequency.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Are those two frequencies the same?

How it is with transition from quantum harmonic oscillator to classical harmonic oscillator? How omega^1 and omega^2 agree?

One example of this is http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/quantum/hosc6.html

but where is the frequency?

Maybe I found answer:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Correspondence_principle

Is this enough?
