consider a general one dimensional potential v(x) drive an expression for the commutator [H,P] where h is hamiltonian operator and momentum operator. i keep getting zero and i dont think i should. since next part of hw question sais what condition must v(x) satisfy so that momentum will be constant of the motion recall that this is true if the momentum communtes with the hamiltonian. so i dont think it should zero. any help would be great trtying to do all hw problems to prepare for final!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
