Just a quick question (although there is a followup depending on the answer). In the formula ##E=\hbar \omega##, is E only kinetic energy or the total mechanical energy (kinetic energy plus potential energy). Thanks!
I know that, I'm asking about the E in the equation ##E=\hbar \omega##.BvU said:The Hamiltonian is kinetic + potential energy
Well, out with it !Isaac0427 said:although there is a followup depending on the answer
As I said, depending on the answer. If it was just the kinetic energy, I would have been confused about something, but apparently I was right to be confused because it is the total energy.BvU said:Well, out with it !
