I have this state function that I've gotten to the form:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]\Psi = A*\exp[iE_1 t/h] + B*\exp[4iE_1 t/h][/tex]

where A and B are functions of x. I know the energy. The h's are h-bars.

The state function is suppose to describe a proton and I'm asked to find the frequency.

My first thought is to somehow combine the terms such that I would have something like

[tex]\Psi = C*\exp[i\omega t][/tex]

Where [tex]\omega[/tex] would be the angular frequency.

I'm having some trouble trying to get it to this form.

What I want to know is if this is the correct approach.

Let me know if I need to give any more info. Thanks in advance.
