## Homework Statement

Consider the following inital states of the symmetric 2D harmonic oscillator

ket (phi 1) = 1/sqrt(2) (ket(0)_x ket(1)_y + ket (1)_x ket (0)_y)

ket (phi 2) = 1/sqrt(2) (ket(0)_x ket(0)_y + ket (1)_x ket (0)_y)

Calculate the <p_x (t)> for each state

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

I am not sure how to work with these kets, I know that for the expectation value using you would do

<phi_1 | p_x (t) | phi_2>

but I don't know how to represent p_x (t) in the notation used in the ketsAny help would be much appreciated.
