If you solve the Schrödinger equation time independent and find a number of stationary position states they are eigenstates. So say uou find the eigen state ψ then c*ψ is also an eigenstate, Does it matter which of these I pick as the eigenstate or is it only the eigenvalue that matters?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
