does a phase factor (that can be represented by an imaginary exponential) in psi (the wave function) really matter? I am doing a problem and getting an answer that looks like sin[n(pi)x/a] when the answer is actually sin[n(pi)x/a-n(pi)]. I am just wondering at all if it makes any defference in the scheme of things. are both answers correct (because i know the probablity will still be the same)?
