I am a seond year Quantum Chemistry student. I am having a hard time understanding these concepts. I was wondering I can get help in this concept.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

How can it be demonstrate mathematically in the Hamiltonian operator that the function

φ(x) = A sin(2x) + B cos(2x)

is an eigenfunction of the Hamiltonian operator:

H=-h^2 d^2

2m dx^2

What is the eigenvalue equal to?
