    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Hi guys, I'm really confused about how to about solving this problem, any help would be much appreciated.

    Consider the wave-function:

    [tex]\Psi(x,t)=\left\{\begin{array}{cc}Asin(pi*x)\exp^{-it\omega},&\
    -1\leq x\leq 1\\0, & \ elsewhere\end{array}\right{[/tex]


    a) Determine A

    b) Find the probability of finding the particle in the region [tex]0\leq x\leq 1[/tex].

    What is the relationship between wave functions and probability?
