Is there any physical significance of this theorem? Can we make some kind of conclusion about space and time because the derivative of the expectation value of momentum with respect to time is equal to the negative of the expectation value of the derivative of potential energy w.r.t. space (d<p>/dt = -<dV/dx>)?? Or does it just prove to us that quantum mech and classical mech have some common ground?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
