Consider the following commutator for the product of the creation/annihilation operators;(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[A*,A] = (2m(h/2∏)ω)^1 [mωx - ip, mωx + ip] = (2m(h/2∏)ω)^1 {m^2ω^2 [x,x] + imω ([x,p] - [p,x]) + [p,p]}

Since we have the identity;

[x,p] = -[p,x]

can one assume that..

[x,p] - [p,x] = [x,p] - (-[x,p]) = -2[p,x]
