Hi, just need a quick confirmation im right with something! :)

If we are considering electrons (for example) going through the double slit experiment one at a time would it be correct to define the wavefunction for the electron as follows?

[tex]\Ket{\Psi} = C_1\Ket{\phi_1} + C_2\Ket{\phi_2}[/tex]

where [tex]\Ket{\phi_1}[/tex] and [tex]\Ket{\phi_2}[/tex] are eigenfunctions representing the electron going trhough slit 1 or slit 2 respectively and the C's are just some constants.

Actually, about the C's, would they be defined as follows?

[tex]C_1 = 1/ |\Ket{\phi_1}|^2[/tex]

and etc for the other C?

Thanks!
