We see how a function might change as x, and t changes. But much of the time, one parameter may seem rather arbitrary, and that parameter may be time.

I know that I am getting a bit off topic, but use the standard equations of a wave to guide you on what you want to plot. I believe Wolfram alpha has the ability to plot functions of several parameters if I am not mistaken. Experiment, and have a little fun with it. :)

Raul,

Thanks, and yeah I have been trying to plot the Solution to the Schrödinger equation for a free particle using Wolfram they have an interactive option where you can play around with the wave. However when plotting

$$\Psi(x,t)=e^{ikx-wt}$$

and I have x fixed, the real and imaginary components do not oscillate vertically with time. Maybe Python will do the trick?

Damn, yeah maybe python can do the trick, or C. But that goes beyond the realm of my knowledge.

Thanks Raul, I'll look into it a little deeper.
