I'm a bit confused about the nature of probability conservation and expectation values.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

According to probability conservation,

[itex]\frac{∂P(r,t)}{∂t}[/itex]=0.

Does that mean that expectation values e.g. <x>, <p> and <E> depend only on the position of the particle and not on time?

Thanks
