(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

ψ(x)=A((2kx)-(kx)^2)

0≤X≤2/k

ψ(x)=0 everywhere else

I need to find A

2. Relevant equations

∫|ψ(x)|^2 dx=1

so I know I need to evaluate it between 0 and 2/k

3. The attempt at a solution

My problem is do I square the whole ψ(x)? If some one could point me in right direction I would really appreciate it.
