What do we mean by the two operators are commutative or non commutative? I wanted to understand the physical significance of the commutative property of the operators. We are doing the introduction to quantum mechanics and there are many things that are really confusing. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
