Solving the time-independent Schrodinger equation gives the wavefunction for an energy eigenstate i.e. definite energy, so by the E, t uncertainty principle the uncertainty in time would be in a way "infinite". Is this what gives it the time independence? If so, how is this state physically significant?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
