Homework Help: Eigenfunction => wavefunction.

  1. Apr 8, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    at t=0 a particle is described by the eigenfunction Ψ(x) given by:
    Ψ(x)= iAe^(-x/2) given that x≥0 and 0 given that x<0
    where A is a real number.
    assuming the system is in a well defined eigenstate with total energy E, write an expression for the corresponding wavefunction.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    i guess a good start is to note that the wavefunction can be written as a function of x dependence multiplied with a function of t dependence ..

    please try and show your attempt of solving the question ..
