**[SOLVED] Wave Function Solution**

## Homework Statement

An electron is found to be in a state given by the wave function http://rogercortesi.com/eqn/tempimagedir/eqn7955.png

Find the value of A.

## Homework Equations

The normalization of the wave function: http://rogercortesi.com/eqn/tempimagedir/eqn9043.png

where [tex]\psi[/tex]* is found by replacing i with -i.

## The Attempt at a Solution

Since the wave function is completely real, the normalization is simply the wavefunction squared, then

I know that the integral of the normalization from negative infinity to infinity is equal to one, when integrated with respect to dx, but I have no idea as to how to solve this integral and find A. Is there a simplification that I am missing, or is it just a really difficult integral?

This is my first time posting with an equation editor, so if the programming does not come out I will repost with pictures. Thanks so much for your help.
